    Re: Super bee 1 K

    I'm sure the Super bee 1K can lift a tote of syrup without any issues; it's a much larger and heavier machine than my hummer--looked at Keith's last January when I picked up sub. At 225 gallons and...

    Re: Show & Tell Time

    Harry (or others), is there a way to put an air ride system under the stick seats in a Ford chassis cab that use the factory seats? I bought the Lariat and I'm fond of the heated/cooled seats. I...

    Re: Super bee 1 K

    Heavy syrup weighs 12lbs/gallon so it should be 3,300lbs if the tote is full. I make my own syrup and a "batch" is about 225 gallons so no problems lifting with my Hummerbee. My sugar comes in 2500...

    So much depends on your own unique situation. I have some beeyards where a 2wd would work fine, rain or shine; others have very steep inclines on grassy prairie trails that you need 4wd to get in...

    Rocks even hurt a head as hard as mine:) Dealer just put it on to get me home. Not much fun riding a truck with just the weight of a spare tire in the back. Got the bed on mine fairly soon

    Re: boxes made from treated wood

    May want to see what the wood was treated with to make sure it doesn't negatively impact your bees. Wax will help but wax is also a sponge that absorbs chemicals. That may allow small quantities of...

    Re: Deer ticks - Lymes Disease

    We don't have deer ticks in the North Dakota prairie, but we have plenty of wood ticks, etc. I get bit regularly but have been lucky so far. While "our" ticks don't carry lymes, they do carry other...

  16. Re: Transporting bees for commercial operations

    Many states maintain a database with contact information on beekeepers; I know North Dakota does and it's on the North Dakota Department of Agriculture's website. Bulk mailing might be worth a shot.

    Me too. I'll do pre-treatment evaluations but it won't be till after the honey is pulled. Hopefully, others will provide some evaluations before then.
