    Re: Painting hives with Tite bond III

    Yes, the sun is the biggest enemy of deterioration outdoors. You can have a great clear epoxy finish on wood outdoors, but if it doesn't have UV inhibiting ability, the sun will deteriorate the wood...

    Re: hives on someone else's property?

    There's a lot of good advice here to walk away from that. It sounds to me like he would keep squeezing you for more every time you turned around. Just keep telling your neighbors, etc. you keep bees...

    I chuckle and I remember the time when I was a kid and made a mouse trap out of a foam box. The first time I checked the box and found it shut, I got excited, till a mouse shot out of the hole it...

    Re: Photo of Swarm Bait Hive

    You have a load of bees there. Thanks for the picture, it's great. I am assuming you are working on giving them more room or working on keeping a soon to be swarm.

    Re: used frames question from CL find

    What about hot enough water to melt off all the wax but not harm the plastic and everything would detach? Re coat with wax and go on. Just guessing here, there may be a reason it wouldn't work. ...
  9. Re: making nuc with shaken bees from several hives and a queen ?

    I am not trying to be offensive or rude, but wouldn't that effectively be like a package, when you add random bees and introduce a new queen? It would become a nuc soon enough. A package does get...
  10. Re: Scientists accused of plotting to get pesticides banned

    They do it a lot. Can I say, global warming and evolution for starters. Come up with a theory, then look for things to convince others it's evidence and ban anyone from the science field that...

    Re: Don't see this everyday....

    Thanks for the photos Bucky. That would have been fun to see up close and personal. I only can think of how much they would get robbed all the time.

    Re: Fort Bee

    My concern would be on the low end where you have rocks piled up at the base. I would think that's an easy beginning for a bear or something smaller to dig under the fence there. I would guess one...

    That sounds great waterbug. There's nothing better than to see the results of a busy queen.

    Re: Bomb Cyclone to hit US next week

    It's basically to create fear and drama, since fear and drama sells, for two reasons I can see. One reason is to get people to stay tuned in longer and more often, and to sell the global warming...

    This is just an observation and possibly a poor one. I do see Monsanto as doing some valuable things, like roundup ready which has it's advantages, though like anything else, it can be over used and...
  17. Re: Pros and cons on Sharing a bee yard with another beekeeper

    I would say it depends largely on your own personality. If you don't really like people in general, are commonly suspicious of others, want to be alone, can't share well, etc., then it most likely...
  18. Re: When your ex topples your hive, can I site animal cruelty?

    She said she got 9 gallons. Sounds like it was harvested. A last case, she says, was taken. A case of what?

  19. Re: When your ex topples your hive, can I site animal cruelty?

    I agree with this. This event is a property damage claim. Bugs don't need human rights. Before you know, every keeper will be called cruel to steal honey from bees.

    Sounds like there's no...

    He's in Missouri. I wonder if there even are state inspectors here. Besides, it looks like he is displaying a fancy log lawn decoration and the bees keep going in and out of it.

    I would be concerned about how much wreckage happened to the comb and possibly a dead queen when the tree hit the ground. Could you assess the damage through the ends of the log? It would be great...

    With the honey mess you probably have on, in and around the hive, I would be doing something to prevent robbing or at least be on guard for it.
