    Re: Swarm in wall over brick

    Brick wall construction leaves a cavity between the brick wall and the interior wall - typically I like an inch to an 1 1/2 space (about enough room for your fingers between the walls). This is done...
  2. Re: swarm and bee tree in Mattoon, IL - anyone close?

    It's possible I talked to this guy last year - had a tree of bees in Mattoon and wanted them out. The only problem is the tree was on the neighbors property. If your going to drive down you might...
  3. Re: when does swarm season typically start in E Central IL

    I have just a few drones flying but saw quite a bit of capped drone last week. The girls are building nicely so weather permiting will start grafting end of next week. I agree with Oblib - probably...
  4. Re: Keep the hive above water to prevent mites from entering from the soil?

    Sounds like a mosquito breeder to me. Guess it would cut down on ant problems, though.
  5. Re: Palm Nailer for putting hive bodies together.

    Probably a little overkill to use one. We used them to drive 16" ringshank polebarn nails especially if it's a tight space and they work good. For small nails they just are not a good tool. I...

    I didn't see any detail other than the close up pic - looks to have a pretty good flair in the lid end to facilitate soldering. I think I would be tempted to use epoxy instead of solder - would...

    I'l go out on a limb here and assume that the root if their concerns are liability for "processed" product. We sell mostly fruit and vegies at several markets but offer honey and cider also. Both...

    Exactly. When it shrinks up the joints will loosen, frames will not fit and bee space will be all messed up. Will turn into a burr comb/propolis nightmare.

    They will hold up fine - like any exposed copper they will eventually get a green petina but it is just a surface oxidation. On the down site they are very soft - plan on predrilling or they will...
