  1. Re: honey filtration at 100 microns - pressure or vacuum assisted?

    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

    Re: Moving Honey

    My plan was if they don't move it is to feed and take the supper off. 1/2 a medium is not even close to enough. Last year I had 2 deep brood boxes that weighed 120 ponds. That was enough with some...

    Re: Where to put Nuc

    I'm in Indiana and the reason I'm making it is because I have and extra queen. I have a hive that is boiling over with bee's. If it was not for that I wouldn't try it.

    Where to put Nuc

    After making a split where do you put it? Do you leave them next to your production hives or move them away?
