    beekeeping evolved from skeps to frames with foundation. why go backwards? I would recommend wax foundation. to let them build their own may be natural but poor combs will be built. they are weak and...

    Re: Looking for 1 1/4" frames

    the odds that the whole bee industry has been wrong for years and one beekeeper saying his idea of a thinner frame is better needs to be thought about.

    Re: Bring Back Our Black Bees!

    Re: Selling candles, success stories?

    I think the problem is beeswax is too valuable. by the time you markup the wax and add labor your selling price is up there. we know the quality is good but candles are fairly cheap. there is just...

    Re: how many hives?

    there are a lot of bees in ga and I suspect within 5 miles of your bees there will be lots of drone areas. your queen will travel quite a ways and other drones will travel toward you.

  13. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    many previous inventions would have worked if it had not been for the bees. they will be the final judge, not beekeepers.

    Re: 8 frame...how to space?

    If your drawing foundation all frames together and split difference with outside walls. If drawn comb for brood do the same way. If drawn and for honey they can be equally spaced.
  17. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    thanks. I guess the only way to duplicate would slit the cells to the middle after uncapping. just not worth the trouble. It was just a thought.
  18. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    ok so they split the cell lengthways somehow. Is that right?
  19. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    for someone in fla or if someone has fresh comb you can see if this design even works. cells go down at a 13 degree angle. uncap a frame and tip it to 26 degrees and see if any honey comes out. this...

    I don't think you will have any problem. I'v parked truck loads of bees under our light for years and never saw any bees flying.

  23. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    I suspect that now mb wishes he had never heard of a flow hive. looks like he got a jacket and some plastic parts while the company grossed 3 1/2 million. they made out well on their investment in mb...
  24. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    mark thanks for being fair. Its starting to be a long winter. what would we be talking about if this flow hive had not come up?
  25. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting
