    Re: I ate some crow

    Now that you've gotten the spectrum of your fellow Bee Source experiences (and we ALL have some for you), do yourself, no, do your family a favor and get allergy tested. You may have an emerging...

    Re: Do you track hive origins?

    +1 for the brick. I use this for important queen info and sharpie notes on the lid for manipulation & observation info. Use the notebook paper to start the smoker now.
  5. Re: Seeley Lab Study: Small cavities and frequent swarms, primary resistance to mit

    Agreed, for sure. We're at the beginning stages of understanding the role of the microbiome and how it relates to survival. The line between good guys and bad guys is not so clear cut it seems, and...
  6. Re: Seeley Lab Study: Small cavities and frequent swarms, primary resistance to mit

    Now that's a fascinating way to look at evolutionary benefits of virulence, and thank you for explaining it so clearly. A question: peaceable kingdom fallacy notwithstanding, do you think that the...
  7. Re: Seeley Lab Study: Small cavities and frequent swarms, primary resistance to mit

    Exactly, that's why AHB are as successful as they are. But their tendency for throwing large numbers of swarms is likely their successful strategy, not their chosen cavity space. A study could be...
  8. Re: Seeley Lab Study: Small cavities and frequent swarms, primary resistance to mit

    I have to question the validity of this study. It's comparing apples with oranges by mixing cavity size and swarm prevention manipulations. I believe the results would be more meaningful if cavity...

    Re: Using 2" x material to build deeps & supers?

    While you can make boxes out of anything, 2x included, I hardly think it's worth the labor and weight costs. I like using 2x for tops and bottom boards. Most of my 3 frame observation hive came...

    Re: Screwed up making splits in a dearth

    I've tried that in the past, and got tired feeding my neighbor's bees. Plus I found that open feeding increases their tendency to rob.

    Re: When and how far to move traps?

    I've been putting out traps off and on for 5 years- haven't caught one yet. Personally, I think swarm trapping is the beek version of snipe hunting.

    I just tack a cloth "apron" onto the front entrance and shake the cell starter bees onto it. The cranky foragers fly off and the nurse bees march right into the hive and are immediately welcomed by...

    Just got beat up by my girls. This thread got me thinking and sure enough, found a couple of outlaw biker magazines on the bottom boards. I miss the simpler, old days.
