  1. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    I take his statements to be specific to a frame that can self extract, unless there is an endorsement of the company that I didn't see. He seems pretty specific about what he is referring to, and...
  2. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    It isn't like the man has changed his signature line to something like by the Oa Vaporizor or some such non-sense. I find it interesting since Michael tells people not to purchase his own book. He...
  3. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    It's Pretty Thin Gruel.
  4. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    I think that he was responding to another persons question. If he had a post that started like "Peeps! You have got to see these super new cool frames! Run out and buy them while you still can't!"...
  5. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    He is? I just went to his web site and couldn't find anything on the home page? How is he promoting this?
  6. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    Or maybe you could look at the photos and videos that are posted. The tubes are only attached when extracted, at least that is what it looks like. I sure hope those Aussies slip MBush some cash, it...
  7. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    I don't even understand why you would put them in TBH's or Warre's. Seems counter to the whole idea of those hives. The Warre is known as the people's hive since it was inexpensive to make. Adding a...

    Re: bad cover design on my part.

    I only have brittle issues when it is cold, kind of like bee comb. Touch it in the cold and it crumbles.

    Re: bad cover design on my part.

    The only problem I have had so far with coroplast is that when it is very cold it become brittle, but that isn't a big issue since I don't go in the hives when it is below freezing But if you have a...
  10. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Kanikka, no way you would leave these on during the winter. The queen can't lay in them. You would need to pull them mid/late summer. And in winter you probably would need to have more than a single...

    Re: Why top bar hives

    Eric, you can do the same with a long hive. May folks with long hives have short inner covers that cover three or four bars.
  12. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    I thought about the whole single super as well I assumed you would want to super over them with at least one medium. I think that swarming could be a big issue in them, but I could be wrong. Maybe...

    Re: bad cover design on my part.

    Quick not on a cover, I currently don't have a long hive so take everything with a grain of salt (TBHs and standard langs only so far). My TBHs have an outer cover made from coroplast (political...
  14. Re: Management changes for flow hive

    Sounds good in theory, but the cost would be higher than people would want to pay. It seems like if you want honey buy it from a local beek, it will be way, way cheaper in the long run than...

    Re: bad cover design on my part.

    I can't tell, but it looks like you may not have any bee space above the bars. The long hive designs I have seen look like a long Lang and have something for an inner cover as well as an outer cover....

    Ignore this.
  17. Re: Swarm commander: Does It Really Work?

    Isn't it kind of new? I never heard of it until just before Christmas.
  18. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow" - Flow Hive

    Why don't we have a like button! :D
  19. Re: Flow Hive- this look interesting

    Alrighty then beeware10. Glad you cleared up the only two types of bee keepers.

    I think there are only two types of bee keepers, but mine is different, those that have hives that have died, and...
  20. Re: Management changes for flow hive

    Ever see a comb of honey that is three inches thick? They cap those just fine.
  21. Re: Flow™ Hive management question

    I think a lot more people get into bees because of a magazine article than people putting down $300 or more for a flow hive. I'm really not that concerned what other people want to do with their...
  22. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    I didn't read all of these, but a bunch of them have to do with invention. A crap load of stuff that has been invented has never made it into production. Remember the spruce goose?
  23. Re: Flow™ Hive management question

    I'm pretty sure it isn't the sellers responsibility to say everything you will need to do to be successful to be a beek. If they were required, Dadant would have to do the same thing whenever they...
  24. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Pretty sure the answer is yes. They can add additional packages.
  25. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    But I'm thinking they are saying the $50 a frame is the discounted price.
