    Re: wild pigs

    We frequently have wild hogs root up to our hives and even sometimes they might bump a hive while digging around but only one time in all our years did they actually get a few weak nucs that had...

    Re: vmVaporizer questions

    Well, maybe I'll get one and tell y'all how it works. If anybody hears on the evening news of a bee keeper down south that killed all his bee's with a cosmic-ray looking gun, that will be me! ...

    Re: Thymol & mites

    Jim,

    I saw that you have tried hopguard 2. In your experience do you think the efficacy was as good as using the thymol strips? And did you have to replace the hopguard 2 strips after 10 days...

    Re: Thymol & mites

    Can you elaborate on the effects it has on the hive? I've used apiguard which can greatly affect the brood, sometimes stopping brood laying for a while. We've cut the dosage in half during warmer...
  6. Re: Using Reefers to treat comb for wax moth and hive beetles

    I had to do my own google search to see what you guys were talking about. Hahaha, no I'm not trying to make the wax moths happy before I freeze them to death.:D

    Thanks for the info Ian. I was...
  7. Using Reefers to treat comb for wax moth and hive beetles

    I've heard of only a couple people who use semi reefers to kill wax moth and hive beetle but I have never seen it done or talked to someone who has experience doing it. My question is simply this:...

    Re: Fall bees dwindling

    We just flipped the hive on end. No switching boxes or anything. Just simply taking the sick hive and flipping it on end so as to expose the bottom and top of the hive to air flow/sunlight. Most...

    Re: Fall bees dwindling

    Yes, but we experienced it in spring up north after being on the orange bloom in FL. The hives were treated with quick strips during the orange flow. The bee's had come out of the winter with very...

    Re: Hive clamps on Forklift

    The only clamp I've seen on a bobcat is the one we had on our 610 back when we first started bee's and we were told by everybody that we need to take it off...So we never even used it LOL! A clamp...

    The XRT was purely hypothetical. I had no real world experience on that machine :) As for the other, I can beat all you "old farts" on your own machines simply due to the fact that I am younger...

    Re: Hive clamps on Forklift

    Pulling hives off the pallet with the clamp will only happen a few times. Just as one's brain learns to automatically pull the lift lever to lift a pallet off the truck before backing up so will you...

    Re: Took the plunge

    Not necessarily. We've had a really good experience with A & O. Our turbo has a 1,000 hours of HARD abuse and has held up in every respect except for the articulation joints. We use the clamp and...

    Re: Took the plunge

    Yeah that's what we've been doing. The problem is the hummerbee will stall out even in low range so I was really curious just how much more power the 1k has over the turbo. Will the 1k actually...

    Jim, Does the 1k ride smoother than the turbo? Maybe most guys haven't tried this but I wanted to know if the 1k could spin the tires when pushing against a tree or something? Will it stall or...

    Re: Forklifts

    Yes, which is why we like using Rim-Guard(beet juice byproduct) instead of the damaging and rusting abilities of calcium chloride.

    This question really depends on your personal style of bee keeping. We used the 10' mast for years and found that we really needed the 12'. We love the 12' mast because there are times that it is...

    Keith, I think your tripping over my usage of the word easy. There are many bee keepers that think it is easy to get into their bobcats. It is if your comparing that to getting into a crane. I was...
