    Re: My (alternative) theory of the Bush Miracle

    Absolutely agree! I purposely did not mention pesticides in my original post because it's like a red fabric to the bull. Pesticides (any) as any chemicals weaken the immune system. It is irony - my...

    Re: My (alternative) theory of the Bush Miracle

    Bernhard - there are many different ways to mitigate mites. Did you try all of them? Russians use "thermo-camera" for treatment against varroa - they "cook" bees at 45(?)oC for 5-10 min until 99%...

    Re: My (alternative) theory of the Bush Miracle

    I am not in position to give anybody advise, but my bees are doing well for the past 3 years against prediction by "experienced beekeepers." I do not like/use the definition of treatment-free by...

    Hi everyone!
    I would like just to tell you that myself and bees are doing great this season. We are in the process of massive building. As in all previous years, today - we are treatment-free,...

    I think, starting bee package foundationless may be a challenge. I would use wax foundation at least at the beginning and than add foundationless one-by-one between already drawn frames. This...
  7. Re: Inspection Jan 28 2014

    Hi Jackson
    Since my hives are near my house - I observe them many times per day - so I have general idea what is normal. Each my beehive has a piece of cardboard under the landing deck - I regularly...
  8. Re: Inspection Jan 28 2014

    Hi Jackson
    It is tough question - bees teach me (hard way) that they prefer less inspection. I "diagnose" the hive by observing its outside activity, how many bees, do they bring pollen (brood),...
  9. Re: Inspection Jan 28 2014

    You are very welcome, Allan. Do you have bees? How they are?

    Imagine you are tasting your own honey! This is the best part of beekeeping - untouched, fresh, totally organic (hopefully) honey from your bees! Everybody, who tried our honey - do not buy...

    Re: Sustainable beekeeping

    I do not know if I have rights to speak at this forum with my 4 beehives :( I never bought any bees. Originally I had 2 beehives (for free, feral), now myself and my neighbors have 6 beehives ...

    Hi Jackson! Nice to hear form you!
    Probably it could happens, but I was so disturbed by this accident, that I simply did not think about wax-moth (AND SHB)... At the time I decided to disassemble...
  13. Re: Inspection Jan 28 2014

    last story for today is my little nuc, which was created from nothing. It is strange story - when we moved beehive to my neighbor, some bees refused to relocate and keep returning to my place. We...
  14. Re: Inspection Jan 28 2014

    Interesting story was happened with another vertical hive, which is situated on the roof - my garden is too small for all my girls :(
    This hive was robbed - literally all bees were killed in the...
  15. Re: Inspection Jan 28 2014 Happy New Year by the way!

    Myself and bees are doing well. We are treatment-free and it is ours 4th (? I do not remember!) season :) So far, bees are healthy, there is no indication of any problems as far as I can tell. My...

    Re: Perone Hive Plans Anyone?

    Perone hive is not designed for inspections - it's designed to leave it alone and come from time to time to collect honey-supers. Practically no maintenance required :)

    In his early design, Perone...

    Horizontal beehive is quite common in Europe, particularly, in Ukraine and Russia. They used tall frames, which are taller than deep-size. So called "Ukrainian beehive" have frames taller than...

    O, thank you! My bees are working very hard even in winter. Honey from those frames were extracted on Christmas day, thus - it is "Christmas honey"!

    All my bars in medium-size category have no additional support. Bars for deep-size box needed some side support.
