    Re: Wintering Nucs - Redux

    It's interesting that a single 4 frame nuc will do well for you. Do you have Italian, Carniolan, mutt bees? I have trouble reconciling your statement with the recommendation for 70# of honey for a...

    Re: Hive moisture

    WARM moist air rises, as has been said by others in the responses.

    COOL moist air settles--and is the source of morning dew or hoarfrost (in winter) on the grass.

    Re: Queen castle plans

    Hi PAHunter62:

    Re: Black film on vaporizer

    Normal evidence of use. Maybe it had a bit of something carbonize (as opposed to sublimate). Don't try to clean it. It'll never look as new as when you pulled it from the shipping box.
