    Re: BeeCam suggestions for 2016?

    It looks like no one makes exactly what I want, for a price I'm willing to pay, so I'm going to retract my statement.

    I happened to have a Raspberry Pi computer sitting around (Version 2, Model...

    Re: BeeCam suggestions for 2016?

    I don't really care about frame rate or latency; I just want to see the bees in high quality. 1 FPS would be fine, as long as I can see them and tell whether they're carrying pollen or nectar.

    But image quality isn't the same thing as minimum focus distance.

    How were the Foscam units for close-up focusing?

    BeeCam suggestions for 2016?

    There hasn't been a bee camera discussion in awhile, and technology moves quickly!

    I'm looking suggestions for a camera I can mount just outside the entrance.

    Re: pollen?

    My California Pepper is blooming, and the bees seem to like it. The whole tree is abuzz. I think this makes my honey taste peppery, but that might also be the power of suggestion :D

    Re: Does pollen imply nectar?

    Is anyone in the Los Angeles (or Palos Verdes, or other similar coastal So Cal climate) seeing a flow now? I'm just so new at this that I can't determine without opening the hive.

    Re: Does pollen imply nectar?

    Hah! I watched my bees from the outside for a few minutes this morning, and they were all bringing in lots of pollen, which reminded me that I'd started this thread some time ago. I was wondering...

    Re: Extractor-less honey by Flow Hive

    My box has been sitting on my hearth for nearly 2 weeks now, just waiting for me to have some free time. Yes, I think I can get this built and tunged during the Christmas break. But my flow frames...

    Re: CO2 for Wax Moth Fumigation

    Awesome! Thanks for the write up.

    But why would the CO2 concentration dwindle over time if there is no absolute pressure differential and CO2 is heavier than air?

    Is it diffusion due to...

  17. Re: How do I keep wax moths from destroying my stored supers????

    I don't want to get into a war of semantics, but some "BtA" formulations may, in fact, be chemical. Here's a post from 2008 suggesting that XenTari contains just the toxic proteins produced by the...
  18. Re: How do I keep wax moths from destroying my stored supers????

    I'm thinking that you wouldn't need a leak-proof system, nor any positive pressure. It's not the CO2 that kills living things; it's the lack of O2 that kills them. CO2 displaces most of the air in...

    Amazon has one for $30, including free Prime shipping (if you have Prime). I bought one of these last year to test honey from my cutout that wasn't fully capped. I didn't buy any calibration...

    I have mixed feelings about stuff like BtA (and the BtK I use on my sweet corn). "Deadly poison to bugs, but completely harmless to humans" just sounds too good to be true, but if you read the...

    Can we assume that these two data are related? I was curious about this when I first ordered my kit. I already have standard deeps and mediums, and I've been beekeeping for a whole 18 months, so I...
