    Re: propolis antifungal?

    I have not tried it specifically for nail fungus. You can buy toothpaste with propolis, and several other products as well. There is no reason I can think of for you not to try it and see how it...
  2. Re: should I reverse brood boxes or just leave supers on?

    Why would you go to the work of taking the bottom empty out? What harm do you think will come from leaving it in place over winter? With just a few I suppose it would not be that much extra work.

    Re: Walnut tree - is it worth anything?

    YES, it is worth something. Probably quite a bit, especially by your description and photo. Where you are at, I have no idea who to call, but I think I would start with your local exotic wood...
  4. Re: Is this unusual item related to beekeeping?

    I can't think of a device that has the fuel in direct contact with the flame either, except a candle.

    When I first looked at the pictures I was not looking at the 'wicks' as if they were what was...
  5. Re: Taurus revolver: how do I remove the cylinder from the yoke?

    No sweat. Glad you were able to get it done.
  6. Re: Is this unusual item related to beekeeping?

    I saw that someone has put the pictures up on Craig's list in Spokane to see if anyone recognizes it. Eventually, maybe, hopefully........
  7. Re: Taurus revolver: how do I remove the cylinder from the yoke?

    Is the ejector rod a left hand thread? I am pretty sure that is more than a good possibility, so you tried unscrewing it in both directions?
  8. Re: Another "Getting ready for winter" question

    So, the other colony busted down to three boxes without any problem? Add back to the bottom of the stack so that you don't mess up what the bees have arranged for themselves already and all should...
  9. Re: Another "Getting ready for winter" question

    The advice you got was not necessarily wrong, in a normal year, with the average hive, in your area. The difference is with this particular colony. Yes, the bees will start expiring soon enough,...
  10. Re: Another "Getting ready for winter" question

    I was going to ask the same question, but at the point the question was asked, the cure was to wind back up exactly where he started since he is already using all mediums. I suppose he could throw a...
  11. Re: Another "Getting ready for winter" question

    Potential for getting a mouse nest, moths getting in on unprotected frames, dead bees piling up later in the winter, are a few that I can think of off hand. But, there is protection from mice that...

    Re: diy plans: bee venom collection

    Is this one of the patents you have looked at? The drawings are detailed enough that a person should be able to make one easy enough. Here is a link.

  14. Re: Another "Getting ready for winter" question

    5 pounds is a lot of bees. Just put an empty with frames on the bottom of the stack. That gives them a place to go for now and can be left over winter if you chose. If left it will help keep...
  15. Re: Is this unusual item related to beekeeping?

    Why make a swarm trap out of metal, and in that shape? It sure would have been nice to find out what it is, other than a curiosity.
  16. Re: Is this unusual item related to beekeeping?

    I really don't know what this device is, or is used for. But, I look forward to hopefully, eventually, finding out when and if someone does recognize it. I was fooled into thinking that the small...
  17. Re: Is this unusual item related to beekeeping?

    Maybe it is just a better mouse trap.
  18. Re: Is this unusual item related to beekeeping?

    It makes perfect sense if the fuel is such that it needs heated to facilitate combustion. The fuel in the tanks is not in the direct flame, if in fact this device is some type of heat generator. ...
  19. Re: Is this unusual item related to beekeeping?

    Used for heating the old style copper soldering irons? What does the body seem to be made of? Looks like copper rivets holding the tanks to the body, with stove gaskets for insulation. Are the...
  20. Re: removed supers - now the bees don't have enough room

    The extra space doesn't hurt. It actually will help a bit with keeping drafts to a minimum in the winter. Just a deep slatted rack that gives the bees a place to go and gives them a bit of room to...
  21. Re: removed supers - now the bees don't have enough room

    Add an empty one to the bottom so that they have a place to get inside.

    Re: Sunshine honey Company

    I will agree with Vance on his report for this outfit, and the bees. The NUC they sold this year were heavy and well put together, but I will have to say they were splits rather than operational...

    Re: What is on my bees

    I suppose I left out an important detail about these two colonys. The queens heading up both are from the same supplier. I contacted the source of the queens that are heading both and asked if they...

    Re: What is on my bees

    In my case I did not see any pollen on the bees in question. Nothing in pollen baskets that I saw at least. Also, they were not daubed or striped with a spot of white. The whole bee was grey...

    Re: What is on my bees

    Are the bees comeing back in looking grey walking correctly?

    I have never seen jewel weed, that I know of. Not sure if it is in this area or not. However, several weeks ago I was noticing bees...
