    Re: Russian queens

    It is nice to see they made things right. That attitude is missing in many folks these days.

    Re: thoughts on freeman bottom boards?

    Ditto here. I'm on 8 frame and use a half sheet baking pan in a custom screened bottom board. I consider it a must have item here. But, there is no way they can hang out or think they are on the...

    Re: OTS Question

    I'll second that. With small numbers, 2 attempts- 2 queens and 6 queens respectively, I've seen 100% emerge rate, but only 50% mating return rate.

    Maybe my wife is feeding too many birds? Maybe...
  6. Re: I brought home honey and found some brood...now what?

    Yes, but apparently they use invisible ink and each hive writes in a different encryption. :D
  7. Re: Look at this exposed column-of-bees I will be removing soon

    That sure will fill one of your top bar hives. You may want to split it from the get go.

    Re: Thermal Imaging Camera

    I've tried the Seek unit. It works fairly well in general, but it is hard to see a colony inside a wall or ceiling with similar surrounding temps. I guess is would be referred to as resolution. ...

  14. Re: First sting of 2015, but probably not the last

    They seem a bit more feisty than last fall when I cut them out. Maybe it's the numbers, maybe it is because I rearranged their world, maybe I rolled the queen, maybe... Oh, my bad, they are bees in...
  15. Re: Made a linseed oil wax/paste for inside the hive

    How does the OSB hold up? I get irritated every time I look at the dimensional lumber quality and price.
  16. Re: Swarm Trap... in the back of TRUCK BED?

    Then you have an excuse for being late. "Honest, I was stuck in a traffic jam..." :) If you started to drive off would the swarm follow??? That would be a sight!

    Re: foundationless frames

    Is there a good way to encourage them to draw all the way to the bottom of a frame? They nicely leave a bee space around the bottom and sides. What would they do with a narrow frame bottom, like a...

    Re: fishers bee quick

    It works well to move them out of areas toward the new hive box. It is much longer lasting than smoke and more directional. In any case, it is not a long term repellant.

  23. Re: New bee keeper tragedy but may have silver lining.

    If all the capped honey was removed, it wouldn't take them more than a day to clean up what remained. Then the robbers would be gone. Even with the goofy weather a swarm is quite possible. If a...
