  2. Re: How do you do this - what's the trick to tipping up boxes to look under them?

    I put my cleats at the top of my boxes. The commercial I talk to once in a while showed me that trick. 1 hand tipping the box and the cleat holds all the weight, no slipping. We did this as a...

    Re: Best Topical for Bee Sting

    Funny, I was randomly searching things on the net and most of the sting away/bug bite remedies had vinegar as an ingredient. I just tough it out, they don't seem to hurt more than a minute and...

    Re: Front Range weather roller-coaster

    38 F and dropping here, it was raining and is now snowing big fluffy flakes. Even if it sticks it will melt by tomorrow. All my colonies have decent sized brood nests now and some have already...
  6. Re: What sliding compound miter saw should I buy?

    I also have an older Craftsman radial arm saw that fell into the recall category (built in '74) and it couldn't be retrofit with a new guard so they said they would send me a box and instructions on...

    Re: foundationless frames

    Not necessary, it helps, you can but first year they tend to blow out - especially deeps even if you wired them.

    Re: Proposed Colorado law on Epi-Injectors

    I tried to get epi-pens at the pharmacy and was told one needed a prescription to get them. So I got some through my kid's pediatrician (for my kid). If they know what kind of work you're in, it...

    Re: Excessive propolis????

    Some don't like bees that over produce propolis. I am not in that crowd. My new yard is near a stand of several large male cottonwoods which are budding at the moment. I looked at one of the buds...

    I too have never had any problems with Mann Lake. Dadant was also on the ball with my order and they got everything, including an extractor, to me quickly. I do enjoy when tracking numbers are...
  11. Re: Pay your state bee fees! I was a fugitive from justice

    So drilling a hole in the top of non-intervention hives should cause them to self fill with bees. No need to buy nucs or packages and an inspection isn't required there either. New York building...

    Re: Table Saw

    We used that type of table saw when I took woodshop in high school (50 years later than Roland, in the late 80's). I miss the heavy duty planer and lathes, and even the shop teacher telling us to...

    The thing that made me laugh hardest was the high probability that Rader would post a link to the bucket of water fiasco lol

    There's definitely lots of goldenrod in that area. We'll have to make sure to pull supers before that stuff blooms. I used to work near there and also visited a lady with an ostrich farm up the...

    Re: Location, Location, Location

    I always thought that the location of my main apiary was a decent one. I typically get 50 - 80# of harvestable honey per production hive which is about the same as a commercial near me. Recently I...

    Re: What air compressor do you have?

    Hitachi 4 gallon. Think its 4 gallon. Works great for running a stapler or brad nailer. It uses oil for lubrication which is why I bought it :)
    It's also fairly quiet, it doesn't wake anyone up...
