    Re: Building a brood box

    I wouldn't cheat on the size. I've always used 1x12x12. You have to think about bee space, primarily the space between the bottom of one set of frames and the top of the frames in the box below it....

    Re: Equipment Help

    As a beek with only 3 years experience, and no mentor, only books and personal experience, I would urge you from personal experience to reconsider making such a jump. I jumped from 3 to 17 and I did...

  12. Re: Paint/Stain What do you use/How long is it lasting?

    Thanks for the info. I have emailed the company inquiring about this issue with Pine. Been using ECO for 3 years on Pine products and this is the first I've heard about it not being recommended. ...

    You can purchase ECO Wood Treatment at Home Depot. Where did you find information that ECO Wood is not recommended for Pine products? To my knowledge painting wood products after treating with ECO...

    Re: Treatment Free Queens

    I can't confirm this for sure, but I heard from a local supplier that John and Ruth were getting out. Apparently John is in really poor health. Again, can't confirm this, but just what I heard from...

    Re: Bottom-bar-less foundationless frames?

    Here's my question. Why would you want to do that? What advantage would there possibly be?
  20. Re: Paint/Stain What do you use/How long is it lasting?

    It is a powder that you mix, but you do not have to dip boxes. Before assembling new equipment I get a foam brush and apply to the outside and let dry. I don't like to dip because I want to leave...

    Before April 6th, I would put a couple of Medium Frames in your deep bodies on the hives you have now and let the bees draw them out. Then you'll have at least 2 drawn frames when your packages...

    It's probably going to cost you between $300 and $400, to start with 1 hive. The price will go down slightly with the number of hives you want to start with. If you are a woodworker that will drop...
