  1. Re: Looking for a Legal Disclaimer Form for Bee Yard Visitors

    Re: Staple Gun for Frames

    Absolute waste using a 3HP or larger compressor, you will never be stapling fast enough to require such volume. And for boxes, cad plated screws will hold more than staples and will draw the joints...

    I filter at 400 micron and call it...

    Re: Combin queenless nuc

    Only problem with that is I have a 10 frame deep divided with 4 frame suppers on top. I guess I could move the divided deep up and put the suppers under?

    Community Feeder ?

    I have 4 hives I need to feed a little to. I'm going to use a 5 gallon bucket feeder so I don't have to get into the hives. How far away should the feeder be from the hives?

    Thanks
