    Re: Natural beehive abandoned

    This is very interesting. Why would they leave honey behind? The hive appears to be open so I don't think it would be to suited for winter here. Because of it's migratory nature I think it would...

    Re: My Indoor Wintering Setup

    I am guessing you mean can't not can. This is why I think you should control the CFM either with a variable speed motor or damper at the intake.

    Rader, do you see the word spelling in that sentence? I thought maybe it was a local term.

    Re: Foundation or not?

    Then convince one of them to let you put two hives on their side of the line and you can better sustain the two you have, no worries for losses.

    Re: My Indoor Wintering Setup

    I would expect frost when warm air moves into cold air not the other way around. I would also expect the frost or snow to occur past the exhaust vent if there is enough CFM. As long as the exhaust...

    Isn't the colder air coming in dryer than the warm air going out?

    Re: My Indoor Wintering Setup

    I would expect the exhaust vents to frost up not the inlet. Are the fans on all the time?

    Next time it happens cut the comb down and put it in a box and then they can stay.

    It sure is flying weather today. I cleaned my extractor barrel today and the bees were all about it.

    Re: Can a noob take care of 60 hives?

    If the cost of keeping bees goes up so will the price of honey until there is no need for the honey. It is the repetitive lifting and bending that is bad for the worker. I don't ever see the...

    Re: Temps inside the hive !!

    I want to know how they get a spark to ignite a gas water heater with no pilot? Are they using the gas pressure to cycle a piston in a coil? Still how do they turn that on?

    Daniel I am not a motor scientist either but I know that a DC motor that operates within its normal speed range will increase in speed as the armature voltage is increased and while doing so the...

    Machines do this very well and they don't need medical coverage. Just saying.

    Re: question for dr. latshaw aka jsl

    I certainly don't know how it works in AL. Do you find the bees consume a lot of stores through the winter? My hives didn't seem to consume a lot until they started raising brood at the end of...

    It sounds like you might lose a few this season. Those stores can be used for the ones that make it in the spring. Things have a way of working out.

    Re: What could have happened??

    It is certainly cold enough now so you can leave them outside. Just seal up entrances and holes so mice don't go in.

    How would you know if these are old bees or young bees? Old bees might have Alzheimer's and can't remember the new location but remember the old location. If it continued you would have a problem...

    I think design is the wrong word. Replace it with "motor type" and I would agree. The discussion was about dc motors (battery operated drills).

    Rader, don't make it complicated. Use the same motor and vary the voltage. It will speed up and slow down as the voltage varies. Now load up the motor (which is torque). The amperage will...

    Re: Temps inside the hive !!

    My what a science lesson we are getting on this thread.

    If gearing is the same torque is amperage not voltage. Voltage affects speed.
