    Re: Tap A Talk

    I'm quite surprised by this and can't explain that. Perhaps it was a bug in the version you attempted to install. From my discussions with other admins, the bandwidth consumption is lower using TT...

    Re: Small Cell Claims Debunked

    Another point often overlooked is that not only is natural cell sized variable but it depends on the source stock. LC bees should draw larger NC sizes than SC bees will. Due to this you can't point...

    Re: Small Cell Claims Debunked

    I wonder, if Delaplane's control hives where in close proximity to his test hives. If the Varroa in the control hives went unchecked, the Varroa may have been able to simply migrate into all hives...

    Re: Small Cell Claims Debunked

    I'd call that anecdotal. How many control hives did you have? How did you regulate environmental conditions during this period? Where are your measurements of stores and their qualities? Blah, blah...

    Re: Small Cell Claims Debunked

    Which is kind of a fancy way of what I said and it could be a combination of things. I just hate when the lab coat mentality comes on here and dismisses what everyone without a PhD does as...

    I honestly haven't bothered. Good idea though, I'll add it to my list of things to do next inspection.

    Re: Small Cell Claims Debunked

    I for one just don't trust studies for the most part. Remember the UPenn study that said neonicotinoids didn't affect bee health? As soon as I saw the source I was skeptical, having Bayer as a large...

    Re: pH of nectar and sugar syrup

    I know this is an older post but I wanted to add in a bit on what MB said. Water source is very important. As a master gardener, I suggest people have their well water tested every 3 years. If you...

    Barry, I have an IT background and belong to several forums, all on Tapatalk. Out of curiousity on my part, do you recall the problems that you had? Was it related to the plugin, submission,...

    Re: Skep beekeeping in Germany

    Bernhard, thank you, this was a great series of posts! Where is this apiary located? I lived in the Hunsruck for a couple of years.

    Re: Homemade Solar Attic Fan?

    More than one way to skin a cat I guess. I got a really good 20w panel with charge controller for $100. Throw in a spare 55mAh deep cycle I had lying around and 3 - 1w LEDs and that's how I put 14...

    Re: Homemade Solar Attic Fan?

    I could be wrong but I don't think you need any of that. The purpose is to vent the attic when the need is highest, when its hot and sunny. I'd keep it as simple as necessary, however, you will need...

    They didn't appear alive and I wondered the same.
    That's good news! Thank you very much.

    Varroa Without Hosts

    I've read in a couple of places, including on this forum, that the lifespan of the female Varroa is 2-3 months during summer and 6-8 months during winter on bees. Does anyone know if and how these...

    Re: Is this a carniolan?

    My first year I was stung once on the wrist. It was at the end of the season and I could tell the bees were in a foul mood when I walked into the yard.

    They are all correct about clothing. First...

    I can agree and disagree on this point, having the statistical background I have. I think that people would be surprised at how small test groups need to be in proper design of experiment. However,...

    I am working on my Black Belt for Six Sigma. What you deem to be a proper study is known as a multivariate analysis, where variable interaction can be shown. The way this is done is through first...

    Re: lang quilt box

    I wouldn't want something big enough for SHB or other undesirables to pass through. I assume they make some very tight patterned hardware cloth.

    I was looking at a Warre once and thought of the same thing. I like your implementation. Let me know how it turns out.

    That hive at the Smithsonian has the exit tube like 20' or so up in the air.
