    Re: Out yard problems u can face

    It is not the owner or the kids who's opinion on hive ownership I was referring to. It is the other people who live in the area who see you placing the hives, traveling the local road with bee gear...

    Re: Noble Apiaries LLC

    One year I had the opportunity to look at many nucs from Noble Apiaries. They were all very good and many were absolutely stuffed full to the seams with bees. These guys are very good at what they...

    Re: Out yard problems u can face

    Sounds like urban myth to me. If you are working the hives on a regular basis as a commercial beek would be doing, how is someone who doesn't keep bees ( and in the case of children, don't even live...
  5. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    I am not saying what you describe is not happening, however, a patent attorney who files a patent application for an invention that he knows is not yet complete enough to work would be guilty fraud...
  6. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    An inoperative device is unpatentable (this is not the same as an un-built device).

    If someone files for a patent before they have finished conceiving a working design, then they have not...
  7. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    If the new invention works where the older design did not work, that should overcome any obviousness argument made by the Patent Office. However, it is hard to understand why someone would expend...

    I haven't done any kind of search, myself.
  9. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    1) The Applicant is not required to do any kind of search.

    2) The Patent Office does indeed do their own search.

    3) Failing to list a relevant piece of prior art does not, by itself,...

    It may appear this is how patenting works, but this is not correct.
  11. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    A quick read of the claims of USPN 2,223,561 ( ) shows that honey is drained from the comb cells by moving the bottom of the cell away from the cell,...

    I use ringshank nails (and Tightbond III). They go in as fast as regular nails, but with much greater holding power.
  15. Re: Sensors inside and the Bee hive. The tech behind the buzz.

    It would be interesting to see hive temperature and humidity graphed together (dingbatca hint hint)

    Grozzie2 - Good point on the local humidity requirements for hive humidity to be useful. Here...
  16. Re: Sensors inside and the Bee hive. The tech behind the buzz.

    I actually think humidity is a more sensitive winter-time indicator of hive health than temperature. If the bees are on food, then the humidity will be relatively high, since they expire water when...

    Re: How would you have responded?

    Re: Best Carniolan Queens

    It is a gross oversimplification to think there is a universal "best" queen strain or "best" queen producer out there. What will be a good queen for any one beekeeper will depend on whether the...
