  2. Re: Varying dimensions from different suppliers?

    I make my own, so I have no experience with different suppliers, but I think that they will be compatable. There may be small (fractions of an inch) differences, but nothing that cause a problem for...

    Re: Winter Fondant Feeding question

    If having it on the inner cover works for you, then it does not matter what others do, right?

    My preference is to place winter feed on the top of the frames, but that's just me.

    Re: How to move bees from here?

    This appears to be the answer to me. I bet the comb is attached to the pot, not the ground, and can eazily be removed if the pot is turned over.

    Re: Dry sugar failure

    Not sure why it did not work for you this year.

    Given your success in past years, I would suspect something other than a food issue. Mites or other health issues?

    Re: Dry sugar failure

    Perhaps it would be better to say that we should try to avoid it.

    In the real world, there are times when bees in cold climates would starve if not fed sugar. Perhaps it is many times the...

    Re: feeding question

    I have never been a fan of open feeding for fear of robbing. Would it be a problem to put the feed in the hive? If you do decide to open feed, I suggest that you keep the feed source some distance...
  10. Re: Where do you Guys buy your hives from?

    I make my equipment, so I have no experience with the items that you have shown. A couple of thoughts occurred though.

    The outer cover may be light and more apt to be blown off the hive, is it...

    As was stated earlier, given the small scale, I don't think it is a problem. After all, the State of California is shared by beekeepers from all over the US during almond bloom. :) Maybe the...

    Re: Building a brood box

    You will be much better off using a 1x12. a 1x10 is only 9 1/4 inches wide. A deep is 9 5/8 inched deep. That is a 3/8" difference and taking 3/8" from the bee space between the hive bodies would...

    I never buy on price alone, and hate cheap stuff, but I do not know if I need the best either. Is this about the price range I should expect to be in?

    Solar fence chargers

    The black bear population is on the increase in my area, so I am considering a fence on at least one of my yards.

    There is no source of electricity at that yard, so I will have to use a solar...

    Re: Larva outside the hive

    Perhaps you have vsh (varroa sensitive hygiene) bees, and they are doing what they are bred to do?
  25. Re: 3 hives, one drawing comb, 2 not drawing; what's going on?

    Does the hive that is producing have more bees than the other hives? It takes a strong hive to make a honey crop.
