    Re: Super DFM - Honeybees

    Re: Bees in Pittsburgh, Texas, to be removed

    "the door of a 66 Chevy, the hive is behind the paneling"

    A little rusty on doors from back then but I believe if you press the panel in, a little clip is exposed to remove the handles. The lock...
  5. Re: Natural mite drop - interpreting the results

    I have seen hives with mites on the board one day and none the next day with no cleaning. Earwigs will learn where an easy meal is waiting.

    Re: Sugar syrup - 4:1 ratio?

    The first step in making honey is moving the nectar. Bees and plants have worked out a system that works and that is a pretty thin mix. A sugar paste becomes a sugar brick pretty fast. Bees take a...

    Re: Custom Pollen Sub?

    Re: Our understanding of genetics is changing

    But those influences are relatively stable within an individual's program. In order for a species to thrive within a fluctuating environment, those influences also must be somewhat self regulating.

    Re: Reoccurring robbing! How can I prevent it.

    At this point this thread might be too late: http://www.beesource.com/forums/showthread.php?302347-Sugar-lump-robbing-stopper
