  3. Re: March 2010, The HBH Drench sounded like magic...

    I have "googled" "ProHealth douse method for varroa control" and other similar lines and haven't found anything on it. I was wondering has anyone else tried this method of varroa control? This past...
  4. Re: ProHealth/EO's with Thymol Varroa Treatment

    Thank you very much, Rader! I wish there was a way to combine the threads. What I will do is to copy my original thread-starter post and post it on the old thread. I have had "magic" success with...

  6. Re: completely see through langstroth hives?

    The second picture is not our Apis mellifera...I don't believe anyway. I believe those bees are Apis dorsata, which most commonly "hive" in the open on one large comb.

    Re: setting up a mini hive

    If you put the pulled queen in a Cali. cage with a candy plug ("Dots" work fine) and force a slow introduction (at least six or seven days), that should work, right? I've also stuck a frame of...

    Re: OSB for telescoping covers?

    Where I live we don't get very cold, even in the winter (sometimes below freezing at night...but not often). I was wondering would solely using plywood migratory covers be fine here? Also, I would...

    Re: Curious finding in hive

    I should have edited that. They aren't dauber eggs, they're dauber cocoons. I guess the bees exposed them.

    Re: Hive Tool - Use / Storage

    I love the moderate design. I was (and probably still will until I can find something better) thinking about tying a lanyard to my hive tool (it's an EZ-pry...

    Re: What type of bee is this?

    Looks like a honeybee checking out an althea flower (a.k.a. "Rose of Sharon").

    Re: Carpenter ants under top cover

    Just be careful when baiting for ants. Don't forget that bees and ant are both hymenopterans. Don't go with a sweet bait, that might get the bees. Go with a protein bait of some sort. I'm with...
