    Re: Equipment to start woodenware plant?

    It's going to depend on volume. Equipment will range from a table saw for low volume to fully automated processing line for high volume. Tons of individual machines ranging from "Hobbiest" to...

    Just wanted to bump this as Threaded still does not appear to be functioning.

    Well good to know it's not just me. As usual however it seems that I'm in the minority on using the threaded option as apparently few have even noticed :-)

    Re: Comb on antlers

    You might be interested in THIS Similar idea. I also saw someone do some interesting things with drawn comb of different colors. I think they added food coloring to the feed and the bees made colored...

    What do you mean by this? What concentration are you using?

    Re: Triangle bee escapes in a wheelbarrow

    Not really. If there are a lot of bees trying to get in there must be an entrance somewhere. But yes, at night that will let up if it's a problem.

    When I pull the boxes I use one or more of the...

    Re: Degrees in beekeeping

    Beekeeping as a business is what she would be looking at. A business degree probably would be more useful than entomology.

    Can't hurt. Most businesses don't fail because the person doesn't know...

    Re: Triangle bee escapes in a wheelbarrow

    They sometimes leave a little slower than when they smell a brood nest below, but not that much slower. But you do have to make sure you don't accidentally leave any opening where robbers can get in...

    Re: Bee inferno in Oklahoma

    I wonder if these accidents are happening because bees get loose in the cab and either sting or spook the driver.

    I recently talked to a lady who said she transported bees on their truck and she's...

    Re: Bee inferno in Oklahoma

    Why not rent another vehicle or two and throw everything into it and put a net over it and drive away? Worst case scenario you lose all the bees but at least you get to keep the equipment.

    Now all I need, is a better/faster way to uncap!

    Roller punch capper. Faster then anything I've used and cheaper as well.

  15. Re: Why are the bees sticking their butts in the air?

    Don't like to disagree with Mr Bush, but I believe that it is a defensive posture. Saw a picture somewhere that showed bees around an inner cover vent port and you could see that those butts in the...

    Re: Cleansing flights: Necessity or Optional

    I've never heard the idea that "Bees won't know the temperature outside" statement and frankly it makes no sense to me.

    The cluster maintains a fairly constant temp all winter long. Bees rotate...
  17. Re: Why are the bees sticking their butts in the air?

    You can open a hive anytime it's warm enough for the bees to not get paralyzed by the cold and shake a frame of bees back into the box and they will come to the top, stick their butts in the air and...

    Nasonov.

    Just curious do they ever do this as a means of protection? IF not does this activity change by time of year?

    Reason I ask is that it seems to me that when I pop the top later in the...

    Re: Bees eating thru my bottles?

    If the process is not quite right, it can actually be too thin so it can't hold any pressure or even separate leaving a hole after molding.

    And that is what it appears to be. All the holes are...

    MJuric, I'm talking about generations of the queens getting lighter in color.

    I agree. The first queen there is a significant difference in color. Subsequent queens from the same hive the...
  25. Re: Carniolans - suitable starter bee for a new beek?

    I'm in N IL and I started with 2 Carnies and 2 Italians. I've also done Beeweaver Buckfast queens.

    For the most part I've noticed very little difference in swarming.

    In my experience, Carnies...
