  1. Re: DIY Oxalic acid treatment viewed through a TBH window

    Great video Charlie. Very interesting.

    Out of curiosity, there were a number of bees falling off comb, were there a pile of casualties to correspond?

    Re: First honey extraction today!

    Congratulations on your bounty.

    I just got 30 pounds out of my second year hive.

    Re: Uncapping roller...do they work?

    I just used mine today for the first time and I'd have to say it's not that bad. As folks have already mentioned, it doesn have a tendency to load up. While it's easily cleared, I could tell how it...
  4. Re: Stupid question: how many beekeepers are scared of bees?

    I can relate to this thread a little. I've always had an irrational fear of spiders so about 12 years ago I bought a tarantula thinking that the care of it might eventually desensitize me to that...

    Re: Yuba/Sutter CA I need boxes

    Hi Katie,
    You might want to approach one of the larger apiaries (Strachan Apiares, YC) to see if they might donate a couple of complete hives.

    Another option for Woodenware might be Mann Lake in...

    Re: water seal instead of paint

    I've used tung oil straight as well as tung oil cut with citrus solvent both to very good effect. It's a completely safe treatment for the wood and the bees.

    Re: Package install in foundationless hive

    Interesting. I've only checkerboarded new foundationless frames with either frames with drawn comb or with wax foundation. I will be curious as to what you find in a week or two.

    Re: almond bees stolen

    It's going to be a sad day when beekeepers have to put lo-jacks on their hives to make sure they don't walk away.

    Re: slatboards

    I started using them last year and I will say that it noticeably reduced afternoon bearding on hot days. It supposedly encourages increased laying in the lower box.
  15. Re: Ipad / Iphone Software - Is there any hope for the "I" World?

    It would be interesting to have something that integrates data recorded at the hive offline to a site like Hive Tracks. I can certainly see where having a web-based tool in the field is a bust.

    Awesome idea.

    If you do a search for 'sample spoons' you will find them, and they are cheap too.
