    Re: I'm pretty sure I killed my hive today :-(

    Hi
    Sorry for your problem. I hope your bees will recover. As for parties, I have a few ideas:
    - what about to cover beehives with the net used in migratory beekeeping?
    - in SoCal it is not bad...

    Re: Foundationless Comb Management

    Oooo
    Thank you for nice words about my bee's work! As for DEEP size frames - I have some even deeper than standard deep. I had honeycomb collapsed twice - in one case I just left everything as is...

    Re: Oxalic Acid Vaporizing vs. Dribbling

    Dissolving OA in syrup is much-much less dangerous procedure than breathing vapors. Proper PPE for dribbling would be simple nitrile gloves and some splash protection for your eyes. In case of...

    Re: Oxalic Acid Vaporizing vs. Dribbling

    My understanding is that dribbling method can be applied only for broodless colonies at the end of season and once (smaller total dose). Evaporation can be used anytime during the active period,...

    Re: Beekeeping and the Atkins Diet

    This is right. During the ketosis, ketons are produced. If your metabolism has switched, than you should smell like acetone (ketone). One week is not enough for switching. Ammonia smell can be from...

    Re: Please Stop...

    Mark, you act like "expert" is a bad word! I would never ever be an "expert" in the bee-field, but I am expert in other area, far from beekeeping and I am proud of that. I do not see why "expert" is...

  20. Re: Have you been turned off by a Beekeeping instructor?

    You need to video his talk and post on youtube! People, who can teach are rare! Knowledge and wisdom need to be transferred to next generation. I personally, would be delighted to watch the video.
