  1. Re: Lady drops bottle of honey and wants me to replace it.

    Re: Electric Embedder

    Thanks to all for the information. I ended up picking up a 12.6V 3A transformer from Radio Shack. Worked great.
  3. Re: Should I super a queenless colony that is full

    In my experience they will produce even more honey if they are queenless because they don't have brood to take care of. As others have said; super them.

    Re: Transformer For Embedding Device

    I picked up a transformer from Radio Shack. 12.6V 3A was what they had in stock. You just have to make sure that your transformer is rated for 2A or so.

    Re: Electric Embedder

    Thanks. I'll give that a try. I'm hoping to pickup something locally to save some money/shipping fees.

    Worst case, I'll just wire in a 12V battery to the embedder and use it like that.

    Re: Electric Embedder

    Ah, you might be correct. This one is rated for 16V, 10VA. Which, if my electronics math is correct, is only .625A.

    Re: Eyelets stick to eyelet tool

    Thanks for all the advice. I am seating the eyelet into the wood with 2 taps of the hammer. Sounds like the tool might be just a little too big. Maybe I'll try filing it down just a bit and see if...

    Re: dry sugar poured in deeps ?

    If the hives feel light, I typically dump it on the inner cover around the hole. When the weather is warm enough for them to move around they are often up there munching away at it. Additionally, I...

    Sole Proprietor or LLC

    More of a business question than a marketing question; but do you operate your business as a sole proprietorship or an LLC and why?
