    Re: Stolen

    I have one trail camera and the next one I am going to buy can take a sim card and you can set the camera to send anything it captures to your cell phone and possibly an email account. I have been...

    Re: Please Stop...

    I guess there's drawbacks even after one has reached Koresh-like status and has 3500+ followers :(

    Personally, he's what turned me away from the TF subforum and I really haven't returned even...

    Re: Which pollen do you prefer and why

    I don't have any traps, I was going to try my hand at it this year. From what I've seen (if I remember right) the sundance is a bit sloppy so it lets 50% of the pollen through which is what I would...
  6. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    Let's pretend it costs them $25 from manufacturing to dropping the frame off at your front door per frame. That would be 1.5 mil profit. A commercial I've worked for spit numbers at me one day so: ...

    Re: Which pollen do you prefer and why

    I like Elm pollen, not because it's easy to collect, but because it is one of the first pollens to get collected and the bees bring it in by the truck load. It ensures good protein for the bees and...
  8. Re: FYI: Had a Neighbor Visit the Bee Yard Last Night

    When we go camping south of here there's a guy who has sheep enclosed in a pen, and the pen has 30+ pelts laying on the fencing. Now he's seen at least 30 of them. When it gets rough going in the...

    Re: How long do most newbies stay with beekeeping?

    Best thing I did was to go let a commercial work me in his outyards. I got years worth of beekeeping advice in a few days. Him calling me a hippie, new age beekeeper was good for a chuckle but as...

    Re: -40 f windchill in central NY

    When I bought fuel for offroad purposes the diesel (#2) was dyed red. And yes, plug in block warmers are nice to have on a diesel :)
  12. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Remember the RRussell fiasco? Bush would be a pariah by association. I certainly hope that doesn't happen and don't think it will. Its the first go round and if the Aussies are smart they'll keep...

    More like he isn't going to be in a passenger car on one of your many train wrecks.

  14. Re: FWIW - dealing with those pesky follower bees!

    I walk into my warehouse (an old hogshed) and they bug off. The funny thing that I've noticed is that if my stepfather gets one chasing him, I can go out and do what ever I like and won't be chased....

    Re: Warning / Safety Signs

    I have 'no trespassing' signs up around my apiary and out yard. The signs don't imply anything other than keep out. If law enforcement has to become involved, them seeing the signs helps your cause...
  16. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Well, a guy I know in Canada who has absolutely no interest in bees or beekeeping just posted a link to the Honey Flow frames on my Facebook page. Looks like the Honey Flow guys not only hit their...

    Re: Wood Pellets for smoker fuel?

    I cut up most of the scrap in my shop into little squares with a radial arm saw, no plywood, mdf, or particle board, and use that as smoker fuel. I find it to work great. I have a 55 gallon drum...

    Any time I do any kind of manipulation no matter how careful I am or how trivial the manipulation is, bees die.
  19. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    And I'm not bashing the product, its a great idea and actually looks like it has the potential to be a great product, and I definitely would want a super or two full of these frames. I just cant...
  20. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    No, im just saying you would need a bucket to drain each super into to "extract" with this system in my hypothetical scenario.
  21. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    This new item is unique and for lack of a better term, cool. It isn't going to make Maxtant go out of business and cause us all to toss our extractors and decappers out a window (which I personally...
  22. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Sounds pretty cool and I wouldn't mind trying a few of the frames out, modifying boxes or making a few special boxes is within my set of skills. From the description it sounds like a great way for...

    Re: Thinking of making my own hives

    I just moved to using this joint on hive boxes this year. Cant comment on future warping but the joint itself is stronger than the single rabbet I was using on my old boxes. Ive heard it referred...

    I use guppies to control mosquitoes in watering tanks with pieces of styrofoam for shade. They seem to do the job and can tolerate the temperature swings pretty well, especially with the styrofoam...

    Re: Perfect boxes (Fine woodworking article)

    Yeah like after I finish machining boxes would be a good time to do this. Im switching to locking rabbets for my boxes this year, only 1 extra setup on the table saw. Im not going to try sealing...
