    Re: Electric 12V energizer

    Ben, make sure the 6 volt is strong enough - I went with the 12V because I felt it would give more protection.

    Re: First Inspection after 5 days

    Put that pollen patty UNDER the inner cover, right over where the bees are drawing comb. I would put the inner cover [don't use them] on top of the empty box so the bees can access the syrup more...

    Hi Ben,

    I use the Parmak 12 volt solar chargers. They are powerful and dependable....
  8. Re: The difference between retarded and brilliant?

    My son was called retarded because of learning disabilities. He is also a college grad and a CEO of a company [much smaller]. We hold back many people with classifications and words. Nice post!
  9. Re: Where/how do you store all your bee equipment to keep away from pests?

    I spray the top bars of all my drawn comb with acetic acid and stack the boxes on a solid piece of plywood. Works very well so far. No wax moth damage and supposed to kill nosema spores too.

  14. Re: Cleaning the Propolis from the tops of feeder jars.

    Why worry about it? I just scrape with the hive tool, check to see if the holes are open [put a small nail in the hole if they aren't] refill and move on. It's not like it will hurt anything.
  15. Re: Bees get stuck on the sticky swamp milkweed?

    I see bees working the milkweed here all the time they are in bloom. The blooms are so full of nectar they drip and that catches the occasional bee. Not a real issue.
  16. Re: Seven days post virgin installation inspection

    When I install virgins I wait about 30 days and then combine the failures. New queens don't do well with disturbance and you risk balling of the queen.

    Re: Wax moths

    Use at least 70% acetic acid. I use glacial. Vinegar is too weak to be effective.

    Re: Canadian Senate Report on Bee Health

    I don't think SHB is an issue for this cold climate. I've had many nucs from FL with some SHB in them. They die out in a year and don't seem to breed up here. Or maybe it's the soil and they can't...

    Be careful of fipronil, that is used a lot on sunflowers and is deadly to bees.
