    Re: Shipping semi loads of medium supers

    We are going to stack the supers tight on standard shipping pallets, then shrink wrap and strap and net the load.

    Jean-Marc,
    Remind us, was the vaporizer your only late Summer/Fall varroa treatment, or did you hit them with something else to knock them back before you started your rounds of vaporizing?
    I know...

    Re: Making queens

    Your best bet would be to try to get one of your stronger hives to make queen cells and get them capped before you put them in the 5 frame nucs. You could do this by removing the queen and a few...

    Sticky: Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Again, I ask is this "natural"?
    It's a great novel concept--well not novel, as others have thought of it before--but at least these guys spent time, effort and money to make it happen.
    Here's the...

    So does this qualify as "natural" beekeeping?
  10. Re: An other sort of feeder, for package bees?

    For small quantities, using a new paint can as spoken of above is the way to go. Easy and simple. Just make sure you tap the lid on tight so you get a good air seal. Then only use a couple of...

    Re: I will never buy packages again.

    That's just funny right there!!!

    Maybe all the package producers, both Southern and West Coast, should stop producing packages for a year and concentrate solely on making splits and honey...
  12. Re: What are your thoughts on using medium supers exclusively?

    D-Man
    In your case, you probably don't want to lift a full deep if you just at lunch at Pearly's or over in Dawson at Mrs. Paul's. Those are just two places to name a few. Man I miss the food down...

    minimizing robbing

    I run all Italians (maybe there are a few muts where supercedure took place) and deal with robbing during the Fall if we don't have a good goldenrod flow. Makes it hard after honey comes off to...

    Re: Stumped on a package bee abscondment

    I agree with the above "loose queen (virgin or mated) in the package or the screened bottom board" theories--seen it happen with both.
  15. Re: Small scale indoor wintering. Is anyone doing it?

    This is exactly what I kept envisioning the whole time I was reading this thread. You could easily make it as big or as small as you wanted. I've got access to hay bales and this would allow me to...
  16. Re: how to store pollen frames and capped honey frames till the spring?

  17. Re: how to store pollen frames and capped honey frames till the spring?

    Do you ever have problems with mice storing them this way? I would like to start storing mine this way as well, since outside is 'one big feezer'. Otherwise I store them in an unheated building but...

    Re: They Died ..... Now what?

    Sorry about your losses.
