+'1 on what Mr. Beeman said
I would call the vender and say something.
Ops I add a 0 sorry about that. I still would feed them as much as they would take.
I find your plan to be very CHALLANGING. If you plan on ending with 10 frame deeps that is 2400 frame by fall. You need bees and comb to do it. What I would do is buy three queens this spring. And...
Have you add something to the Java script. My voice dictation on Suri isn't working on the forum anymore. Something I miss due to my poor spelling problem.
That way you can close it off or open as needed. You could even do it to the one you made all ready just recut the opening to angles
Dynemd can I suggest that your plugs are cut at a angles so that you can use a screw to mount it and twist it open or close. Like a double bottom screen with a entrance.
I find it better to have a move hive total. Winters here keep my totals down. And I end up rebuilding during the summer. With the hope of not buying bees. Maybe queens but that is all.
Best to let them pull the plastic as a box. With no choose. Set the plastic aside for now if you have no comb. Once they pull that box and you still have a flow I would put it on then. Once it is...
Make up nuc move to next yard. Then add cell.
I put a small Nuc into a observation hive and moved it inside. Because they where weak.
The only time I inlarge my entrances is in the heat of the summer. Like straight 85deg days and up.
Ohio is $5.00 per yard. With our inspector. You Can get 35 years of wisdom. Now if he would give me a head up that he is stopping by.
As a painting contractor I hate paints that have primer built into them. I feel that the more you ask of a product the poor it does all of the jobs. But does a so so job on all of them. There Gripper...
The first ? To ask is how much space do you want to tie up.? Are. You interested in dust control or not. Do you cut full size plywood sheets or not with it. No dust control and full sheets of plywood...
I saw where Roland? Is had a lot of good reveiws. Haven look at one yet. Hope to soon as I remember when I am in the tool supply house.
+ 1 on shinbone simple and almost as fast as doing it by hand. Try the push up one and didn't like it at all
Spare Boxes that are set in the yards. Waiting to go on hives.
A big sink strainer works good for your first strainer. Can't have enough buckets.
In stead of cutting I would suggest making some nuc. With the cells. That way when you need a queen. You can boost a hive for honey from the Nuc. You will have a replacement hive when that one dies....
I bet you will run out of room in that box.😄
I will throw a monkey wench in to it all. At the house it is almost qt's. My health food stores it is pints. At the one show that I do every thing from 8oz,12oz 1 lb, Bears, pints and quarts. The...
If you do a push in cage. I would leave holes for steel brads and do them as a add. Do the border and the wire in the plastic. Just my thoughts.
Wooster paint company makes a nice 4" roller and a crockpot works for me. Or a small deep oil fryer.
Some people can run a hot knife and some can't. Thermostat one is the only way to go. If you are a new bee with just a couple of hives. I would find a good course bread knife. A goodwill, garage sell...
