    Re: Maintaining Copper Hive Top

    Przemek,
    Your last comment PERFECTLY demonstrates the feeling of Parenting. My first post (opinion) in this thread didn't fall into the parameters of the answers you wanted to hear hence YOUR name...

    Re: Maintaining Copper Hive Top

    Przemek
    I wasn't trying to be ugly in the least, but rest assured if I were I COULD have done much better. Apparently I'm a very young 53 and how you found sexist in my response is baffling, oh I...

    Re: Maintaining Copper Hive Top

    Worrying about a pretty top spells doom for the bees just as marrying a woman for her looks spells doom for the marriage, it's what's on the inside that counts. Not what you asked for but it is what...

    Re: Bee removal question

    Rest assured if it could be taken apart and reassembled even with moderate effort I'd be all over it. There is a stucco type perimeter that matches the post on each side. The cost to redo that stucco...

    Re: Bee removal question

    Sorry but I'll probably not drive 20 miles one way for pics.

    It's a 4x8 sign hanging with the bees entering 4' off the ground into the sign near the LH edge.

    Re: Bee removal question

    My intent was to install a screen cone over the entry/exit on the sign that the bees are using. This way once the bees exit the sign they'd be unable to re enter the sign and then move into the hive...

    Bee removal question

    The sign at the local industrial park has bees in it that I've been asked to remove. There can be no disassembly of this sign so I'll have to trap out as many bees as possible before it's fully...

    Re: Screen board/beetle trap issue

    I'm unsure which size classification the screen is but I'm certain the bees cannot pass thru the screen. Looking at the screen it looks to be 1/8" square openings.

    I'll report back soon as I can,...

    Re: Screen board/beetle trap issue

    I remembered that I had a new unit as above that I'd not even painted yet in my basement. I went and checked it out quite closely. As best I can tell the slot that the screen slides into is a bit...

    Screen board/beetle trap issue

    I've got several screened bottom boards with the beetle trap underneath. I've been having an issue with bees getting into the oil and of course dying. I removed one and then made sure all was...

    Re: Extraction question

    If that were a concern I'd most likely wash it well with Clorox and then backtrack cleaning with whatever's needed to neutralize the Clorox.

    Re: Best fume board cloth

    Thanks guys for the info. The Sheetmetal part is easy for me as that's how I make a living. I've been stashing back surplus metal painted black so that's covered. I've had up to 4 fume boards and as...

    Best fume board cloth

    My fume boards are showing their age and I'd like to build new ones but I'm unsure which cloth would yield the best results. Does anybody have any experience with this?
  14. Re: Honey Room vs Basement? Please give insights.

    I've never had an issue with bees trying to enter the basement and then into the house. Any that are brought in with the supers will congregate on the windows of the garage doors trying to get away...
  15. Re: Honey Room vs Basement? Please give insights.

    I've used my basement garage 20+ years for extracting and can't see how any place could be better that's not a designated honey house. I've got a sink with hot and cold water, a bathroom, and once I...

    Re: Honey from Wax Melter

    I can't see why there would be an issue. I've got a stainless steel wax melter that I use and I've feed this surplus honey back 20+ years and if there's a problem, I've not seen it.

    Re: how many brood boxes?

    I've always used 2 deep brood boxes. Simple math backs this up if more bees is what you want. More times than not in early spring you'll find the bees spending all their time in the upper brood box....

    Re: Honey Super ?

    Most likely no useful honey flow. They will move up when they need/want to and not before.
    A car won't run without fuel nor will bees produce wax without surplus honey.

    Re: Bees only Filling out Half the Hive?

    This is a common occurrence from what I've seen over the years. If it were mine I'd turn that hive body 180 degrees effectively reversing which side the occupied frames were on in the hive. When I've...

    Re: Did we miss tulip poplar this year?

    Here in TENN at my place it's quite easy to see the blooms when they are blooming. Any of the TP on the edge of a field will have blooms on all limbs regardless of how low they are. When the trees...

    Re: Am I doing the right thing???

    If it were me I'd remove one frame and insert another from another hive that contained fresh eggs. This way a queen can be produced if need be by the bees in the parent hive.
