    Re: Pallet Wood / Shipping Crates

    I had it done before. The crates/pallets get put in an oven room and baked till all the potential bugs, etc. in the wood are dead. That's all it is, so there isn't any effect from them now.
  2. Re: First Year Experience, Good & Bad. Lessons Learned and Words of Wisdon.

    I am thinking about your thread title and the meaning of wisdom. You can attain knowledge from a book, forum, another person, etc., but you can't generally acquire wisdom without experience. And,...

    Re: bottom board 'rim' question

    That's funny, I am more afraid of a chainsaw than any other saw I've used. Worse than cutting a finger off, the wood can fall on you and smash you. I know of a couple men who have done that to...

    Re: bottom board 'rim' question

    I appreciate your finger concerns and board width limit. I have been using saws, etc., for a long time too, 40 years of making a living with them. I still have all my fingers, by the way. You can...

    Re: bottom board 'rim' question

    If your wood piece is long enough, (cut the wood full length first) run it through part way till the end is almost at the saw table, lift it up and end for end the piece to finish the cut.

    Re: Theory behind Lemon Grass oil.

    Though I couldn't identify them or confirm it, I think there are fabricated, or fake, lemongrass oils out there. What did you buy and how much was it? Maybe someone can tell you if it's genuine or...
  7. Re: Fundamentals of beekeeping: Cost to get started

    Is the fame and fortune just an added perk then?
  8. Re: Fundamentals of beekeeping: Cost to get started

    The other option of making your own equipment can save a lot, as long as the time cost isn't a big deal to you. I am using 8 frame mediums, no foundation, and have 6 hives, from single box hives to...
  9. Re: Why not have few very large hives instead of many small ones?

    I didn't think about that. Their behavior is likely going to be very different. Makes sense.
  10. Re: Why not have few very large hives instead of many small ones?

    A learning question here, in catching a swarm, is there any evidence in it if it's a reproductive swarm or a colony of bees that absconded?
  11. Re: Why not have few very large hives instead of many small ones?

    How did that swarm work out as a hive? I am just curious and wondering if it may have been an absconded hive with some trouble that caused them to swarm.

    Re: Aaagh , Robbers !

    I made some similar to you that were as wide as the 8 frame box, with a small top entrance opening on one side and the robber screen opening on the other. The opening is 4-5 inches long on the end. ...

  14. Re: Need to transfer Bees from Langstroth to British Standard

    If you really had to use it, just stack them for expansion into it. I don't know exactly the size of the British hive, but it seems like it's 18" x 18". if that's the case, set the British hive on...

    Re: Any good breeding methods for Zone 5A?

    I split this way last summer, making sure the queen was removed from the original location and keeping that hive location as strong as possible for more good queen cells. I ended up splitting into 6...

    Re: What's wrong with this video

    Actually the video is all about tv drama and suspense. That usually doesn't work well with truth and reality.

    Re: Shopsmith table saw

    You'd do better with most stand alone table saws than that, is my guess, though i haven't used one.
    If you can swing it, I would check this out and see if it's in good shape, if it's got the...

    Re: Bees are dead! Now what?

    You'd have to supply more info and maybe even pictures for someone on here to help figure it out. You mention you put out sugar water, if it was open feeding you could have inspired other bees to...

    Re: Open air hive in January in Indiana

    Very nice. That would be a treat to find.

    How about constructing a box that the whole thing would go into, notching the box for the branch to fit into the notches, and cut the branch off,...
