    Re: Too many upper entrances??

    That's up to you but I just keep mine open all the time. If I know a big storm is coming and expecting heavy rain to be blowing sideways, I'd consider shutting it, but 90% of the time I don't.

    Re: Too many upper entrances??

    JonnyBee,

    I still have all of my hive shimmed open and reaching 92 degrees in my part of the country. I'll remove them as fall approaches.

  7. Re: what do you do with honey frames after extraction?

    Last year I put them back on top of the inner covers and let them clean them up. Some great points have been made above my post about storing them wet. Now I'm wondering how a person find BT. Is...

  9. Re: What is the most useless piece of equipment you have bought for beekeeping?

    I second the wire crimper from Intheswamp. I can put the death grip on it and still not be effectively crimping the wire.:scratch:

    Trap out in drought questions

    Here's the scenario:
    Bees are in a tree (public park) adjacent to a home. The home owner wants to mow without getting stung. The city parks people are on board with a trapout. Like most of us...
  13. Re: Feed 1:1 now to draw comb on medium supers?

    Let's just say you did decide to feed now and they end up drawing out comb in the med supers....possibly filling the comb with sugar syrup/honey. I question to you would be this...

    Re: New beek in drought

    Looks like you are getting good advice from the posts above me. I wouldn't do a split with the drought going on. The weather here in Nebraska is pretty much the same as in IL. I'm not completely...

    Searching old threads on lip balm and trying to find labels for them. Obviously, I joined this forum recently and wondering if "Amy" is still around and how does a person find her?

    Re: My bees ignoring the supers.

    I'm sure more experienced beeks will chime in but here is my two cents. Sounds like the upper deep is full of honey. What'd I'd do is move it above the super. I'd replace it with another deep with...

    Re: How do you remove caps on honey super cell?

    I know this is a bit off the subject, but if you use a heatgun, the wax melts... then you got liquid wax going somewhere... capping tank into the honey?

    Re: How many of you use a queen excluder?

    Same here. Seems like they become more of a "honey excluder" and they become honey bound quicker.

    Re: Russell? Beating a dead horse?

    This whole deal is very strange to me. I (like most) don't want to be burnt by anyone and/or company, so not 100% comfortable ordering on-line. Having said that, I ordered 3 queens from Russell...
