Spring is ready here, too.
Typical "over-flow" I'd say...:)
Modeling global distribution of agricultural insecticides in surface waters
It certainly doesn't - it just need talent to work with it and to keep it alive in practical usage. I got a cheap one and the cable broke all the times (I throw the thing into my truck, and it kept...
You're paying for a tool that works compared to a self-build source of annoyance. Guess how I know. ;)
I also wonder how that project went. (As well as how many of those survivor bees actually survived the winter. Before winter it was 75 hives, no?)
Ian, what are the specs of that hoss?
I find my truck sometimes less good in offroad conditions than lighter 4WD trucks. After rain we have very muddy conditions here. A lighter truck (with no...
And don't forget electrostatic fields. See:
The team around Randolf Menzel (in Berlin) is currently...
More insulation, more warmth, more queen movements...?
The use of top entrances and the use of multiple entrance - each hive body has an entrance - only has disadvantages.
I tried it for a while and found it so supercool:
This is where the product SymBeeOtics comes into play: http://symbeeotic.apicellae.se/
This product was developed by the team that...
Hi Frank, you have a valid point there, Langstroth is widely available and that is a big plus, especially if you want to buy equipment like an extractor or so. On the other hand, if you build your...
For another easy frame design, see the Delon frame: http://warre.biobees.com/delon.htm
You basicly bend a strong wire to form the sides and bottom of the frame.
Two friends of mine have done...
Ivan Brndusic from Serbia made this adaption.
A beekeeper in Slovenia is showing his adaptions. (Mr. Odisej.)...
Concerning frames for inspections. This Tim Malfroy from Australia. He uses half frames in the center for inspections. He uses the double height:
Who said bees can't thrive in a Warré?
One adaption I use: by putting in two foundations per box, you have a "bee ladder", so bees can climb and cluster the new box. Either when supered or nadired. ...
Late winter inspection and first brood in a fixed comb hive: (cut the sides, lift the comb with the topbar)
Comb building in the progress, viewed from...
One of the old beekeepers that teached me beekeeping always said:
"It is not the hive - it is the bee that brings the honey!"
And there is much truth in it. I experimented with a lot of setups...
I have not the slightest clue what you are saying? :scratch:
Bee space in a fixed comb hive? :scratch:
Two boxes per hive? :scratch:
Could you say it in other words?
Yes, as said because of the frames. In his late work he propagated the smaller hives without frames. His book has had 12 editions in total. In the 5th edition (1923) frames were described, but not...
This is a modern version of those cages:
Some impressions from Émile Warré's apiaries.
No. Certainly not.
That is an modern interpretation of the bee hippies (how I call them, with a friendly wink) but has nothing to do with Émile Warré's intentions. Read the book. There is small...
Nice...you start with a Warré hive, remove bottom, roof, add some frames and queen excluder and you end with a Lang. Now that is a bit boring...isn't it?!
It is not just a cute garden hive. You...
