  1. Re: Oxalic acid application Sprayer vs Vaporizer

    Interesting that vaporizers sending a concentrated plume of OA beneath the brood nest are getting good reports but apparent failures are reported for gonzo forced air units. Possibly the more...
  2. Re: Oxalic acid application Sprayer vs Vaporizer

    What would be the best temp control setup to maintain 300-315F? Any Grainger parts that would work in a farm-shop built unit?
  3. Re: Oxalic acid application Sprayer vs Vaporizer

    Mike, Here is a link to the non-forced air vaporizer (http://www.eng-service.com/api%20caratt%20sublim%20apfPLUS.htm). Treats hive in 25 seconds. Looks like it is not available in 120V. I think...
  4. Re: Oxalic acid application Sprayer vs Vaporizer

    Re: Bought me a Bee Truck

    Nice truck Ben. We strap 4-way pallets front to back so have 4 ratchets on the rear of the deck, one for each row of hives. For local moves, I often only strap the outer rows of hives and cross tie...

    Re: Managing back pain!

    Here's more food for thought on the NSAIDS: If I correctly recall, most clinical trials for the generic NSAIDS were performed for 6 weeks only. Many aspects of long-term use, like increased risk of...

    Re: Managing back pain!

    I strongly recommend against frequent NSAID (Advil, etc) use. These medications can cause permanent damage to the filtration mechanism in the kidney. You can end up with kidneys that will not last...

    Who has identified the microflora beneficial to bees? My sons added microflora to the subs this summer. Just started the mortar mixer mid-morning during the dearth and all the "home-bees" landed in...
  10. Re: Best time to take bees down to California.

    Where do you plan to pollinate? A lot depends on the forage availability. The eucalyptus bloom will grow your bees but getting yards with eucalyptus is competitive. If your populations are good in...

    Re: Flat deck truck ?

    That's good. Deck height should not be an issue if you are only stacking 2 pallets.

    Re: Flat deck truck ?

    Ben, In the states, the max. weight before requiring a commercial license is 26k. This means is that when you or an employee tow a 10k trailer, you will need the CDL when driving a 550. A 550 could...

    Re: Need pallet plans! Please share yours.

    One point to consider is leaving some small gaps in the back corners when stapling your bee space cleats. This will allow water drainage and may become a back door on a north facing hive in winter.

    How the UCR was explained to me is that it replaces the multiple state plates that you used to see on interstate trucks. I would guess it would not be required if you only operated in your home...

    B@B, what is the width of your split-deck? I have not seen tilt decks built with an 8' width but it would sure beat lashing on pallets, as in East-Side's photo.

    Yes, bees are certainly bringing toxins into the hive, but we have much less control of this (and also really have no idea what is coming in). These bees have not pollinated agricultural crops since...
