    Re: Cleaning Bee Suits & Veils....

    Sounds like a good technique, HB, I might try that on the next cleaning. And I like Oxyclean, too.

  3. Re: 2 small extractors instead of 1 big one?

    Yeah, if the 3100 held two more frames radially with all of them evenly spaced out I would already have one sitting in my shop, possibly even if the the current 6/2-framer's six radial slots were...

    Re: Cleaning Bee Suits & Veils....

    I've got a GB jacket and what I've done is handwash the veil with Woolite (or some other "handwash" detergent). I let it soak for a long while and did two "wash cycles" on it and then rinses really...
  7. Re: Bottom board conversion - screened to solid?

    Remember that bottom boards are easy to make from sheet goods...a square of sheet and three rim pieces. You can probably make 10 bottom boards from sheet of AdvanTech OSB ($27 here, known for it's...

    Thanks for a good, honest post, David...one of the best that I've seen for a hands-on review of the 3100.

    Very true. Of course, if you figure the time those videos were made there are lots of things that doesn't apply now...watch the ones where he's making up his antibiotic patties that "you have to...

    Re: What size opening for beetle trap?

    A 5/32" hole works...it is just about the diagonal distance from corner to corner of a square of #8 hardware cloth. Slits can be 1/8" or even smaller as long as they have sufficient length. ISOT...

    Re: Hive placement

    I don't know if it will matter but you might try lining them up in a staggered fashion so as to give the bees in the rear hives somewhat of a clear flightpath in front of the hives...

  14. Re: Hole Saw Sizes for bee escape and feeders

    I use a 2-3/4" hole saw for regular size mason lids but I screen over the holes and place the jar on top of the inner cover rather than down into the hole. I'd measure the wide mouth lids that you...
  15. Re: Bottom board conversion - screened to solid?

    Jackam, have you used screened bottom boards previously? If not, it might be a chance to compare them with solids. I know your climate is *very* different from mine, but a 15% drop in mites could...

    Re: OTS Queen Rearing - book review?

    Where did you see that book located? Is it written by Mel, himself? I thought that Mel's technique was pretty well documented online as garusher mentioned.

    Like Jackam mentioned, lots of examples in that thread.

    Well, what I wrote is true. The only thing that has been done is the occasional and unintentional brood-breaks due to swarms issuing from my colonies. But I doubt I'll be selling queens any time...
