    Re: Cleaning Plastic Excluders

    I was expecting the "wait until it gets cold & bend them" response. Does not work, will only break them.

    Cleaning Plastic Excluders

    The title says it all (note PLASTIC): anyone have a good/easy way to clean them?

    And please, no "just don't use excluders"; this is not intended to open the excluders vs. no excluders debate again...

    Re: Spin Float consideration

    I am with you there Jim. I have had my spin float for 5 seasons now and still wonder if I am operating it properly or at its optimum.

    Re: snow storm dakotas

    We were spared most of the snow here in Bismarck, a little snow but mostly rain (over 2.5"), but it is a very fine line. I've got two yards west of Mandan (5 miles west) that I couldn't get to...

  6. Re: Removing bees out of honey supers(large scale)?

    I'm with Brian on this (although generally use Honey Robber from Mann Lake). I have used both (blower & fume pads), and a blower is much slower.

    Re: Spin float honey quality

    Been there, done that Jim (used a Cowen spinner for a few years). Have had a spin float now for about 4 years. I don't have to push it too hard and always let the honey set for a day or two before...

    Vicor (Happybees) is sending a load up here to a friend of mine for the honey season. Hopefully it will be profitable for everyone. Looking better as we have received some substantial rain over the...

    Re: I want to send bees to N. Dakota

    No one else from ND is chiming in so I guess it's up to me :).

    First off, I was actually looking for a load to lease when Victor posted this, and did talk to him. Wound up getting a load from...

    Re: How's your spring????

    Yeah, Chip. Spring, what spring? My load was supposed to leave CA on Sunday, obviously that got delayed. Will be at least a couple of weeks. Hopefully the moisture will pay off.

    Re: Southbound 2012

    Hummerbee.

    Helps a lot to have a level loading area though. Mine is not the greatest so it is slow going in areas, esecially stacking them up and moving in position to load the truck.

    Re: Let's talk trucks

    Yes. Know it would be an issue compared to my little 1 ton. Friend of mine has a F-450 with a 16' bed; took it to CA one year; really had to adjust to the turning radius with that thing (takes...

    Re: Let's talk trucks

    Right, Mark. Thinking a 16' bed would allow room for fume boards or other "stuff" when pulling honey; 4 rows of honey pallets would leave a little extra room on the back.

    Re: Rotating boxes, How often?

    700.

    Generally only time I reverse boxes is with nucs that were made up in the spring, usually just before or when honey supers are being put on. I run story & half hives (deep + medium, usually...

  22. Re: What would a large operation need for extraction?

    Hmmm, think I have about 2,300 medium (6 & 5/8") supers.

    I generally pull honey twice during the season here, one round end of July/early August and then strip them down in early September.
