    Re: 2 solar controles on 1 fence ?

    Re: 2 solar controles on 1 fence ?

    Separate "hot" fence wires for each charger. Power supplies generally have to be designed to be connected in parallel (hot to hot and ground to ground). I am assuming fencers have not been designed...

    Re: Why not harvest surplus in the spring?

    You would probably have to do some sorting to harvest in the spring. Most of my colonies are in the top box in the spring and begin their brood rearing there. It's easier for them to keep warm next...

    Re: 2 solar controles on 1 fence ?

    Connecting the grounds of two fencers together should be okay, but I would be cautious connecting the positives together. The pulse from one could possibly damage the other. You could run separate...

    Re: Why is it such a bad queen rearing year???

    I had the opposite results of Ian. 75% around dandelion bloom and then 90% later. Lots of variables. Weather, flow conditions, etc.

    Re: Hogg Half Comb Cassettes

    I have experience with Ross rounds, not Hogg. You want to keep the bees crowded. I wouldn't add another box. When they have the middles frames capped, swap them for the outside frames and then...

    Re: Pound of dead bees in front of each hive!

    Pulling the honey, closing down the entrance down to prevent robbing and maybe feeding a little thin syrup might help. They always look better on a flow (natural or artificial) and the thin syrup...

    You want to filter the honey before the bottling tank. Cleaning up any bees/flies and moths in the bottling area before taking the lid off the tank and wear a hair net. It isn't practical to filter...

    Re: 6F nucs for honey production

    This is what I've noticed. 5 frames is fine depending on snow cover and winter harshness but one or two more is better. So you'll pull the honey when canola is finished and feed? Do you have any...

    Re: Bright Orange Pollen - what plant?

    Volume is too large for that. I have 9 traps on in the yard and they are all orange - it would take acres of squash.

    Re: Bright Orange Pollen - what plant?

    There are a few dandelions around after the May bloom, but not to the extent that it would dominate pollen traps. Perhaps it is basswood - it is listed as "light orange" in some places, but I had...

    Groundhwg, why do you need to remove them? why not just store them on the hive until your mentor is available to help you extract? For storage, a freezer would be better. I would be worried about...

    Re: Lega Heat Gun Vaporizer

    Inverters generally produce a square wave output instead of sine wave. Doesn't matter to most devices, but some don't like the square wave.
