yea, Mann Lake is pronto
yea, bigger is better, but not too convenient.
they will land on anything, but prefer at least a deep, if not a little more.
all else being "equal".
I have solar, want to supplement for night time
have RV next to yard, and want to put a small wind generator,
anyone have experience? It's about 20 to 40 feet from hives.
I know mower etc, can really aggravate, the constant ground...
I find myself scanning a thread to see if there are any replies from him.
Thanks, broodhead. I kind of miss the spring adventure,
my trailers have weeds engulfing them.
Yes, it rough, we got spoiled by that premium varietal.
Looks like the state might have to take...
Had two great years in Vero area, and then two bad years in Vero.
Mostly dead hives, hardly any honey, because of spraying.
I know I'm not the only one, lots have given up, on citrus.
Don't leave any honey or comb out.
Once they develop a taste for it, they will be lifting lids, no joke, they are strong and intelligent.
They have a sweet tooth, people use coke for trapping.
snl was first to reply with address, they are gone now.
I bought these by mistake, wanted the 2" with diaphragm
I can fedex no problem,
I bought from greenbeehives, many time before. They have been very fair, even with a mixed up order, delivery is not super fast about 2 weeks.
Overall, very pleased. I think they use plasticell...
2007 bmw, rear lenses have vents for heat, so when I hauled a couple hives, or moved supers,
I had a mess with trapped bees. Just saying, not much of a thread, might have been covered before.
I have same issue, lower broodcombs are empty and abandoned, and a otherwise strong hive moves up with brood, and honey.
My area has more pesticides and they stop using them, or.....?
I've seen about $20 to $35 retail price, set by market owner.
I also give them a heavy gauge clear bag I got from uline, about 10x 30, so the buyer can transport home....
I've shown this before, but one frame and one quart extraction rig, for plastic foundation, I made, not rocket science.
Helps with varietal separation, frame by frame.
You are a great resource here, use concise outline format, and really take the time to inform us green horns.
yes, but OK to reuse wood?
varroa, light insecticide buildup, nosemia, or other non desirables.
I snap out the old plastic brood foundation and put new plastic in, but can't help but think,
I am inoculation some nasty chemical, or biological elements, besides the obvious like foulbrood,
like holding a caged queen on topbars, to see reaction.
any other tips?
decent size raccoon number one is trapped, no poison, but was in cage 3 days, died of exposure, so to speak.
Notice I carefully used the qualifier, "in my experience"
I can't explain why, the results were less. They are different approaches, to attraction.
I can remember a couple times that both were...
I've tried all 4 types:
the pheremone test tubes
the orange french toothpaste stuff
the test tubes and LGO seems to work best for me,
but togther doesn't help your chances...
no one has a monopoly,
I have the same situation here.
yield is way down, only the super strong colonies produce a surplus.
