Not sure it's just a sheet rolled into a tube shape. A hose clamp keeps it in that shape and snug but still movable on the hap eat gun. I treat my TBH through a bottom feeder hole and it works better...
Pretty much frost every night.
I should have mentioned I'm making a Melomel so I have rasberrys mixed in. I put one crushed tab in pitched about 20 hrs later.
Have my fingers crossed.
I have it in...
It's a straight 3/4 female connector(solder joint) one end and male pipe thread on the other. Come to think of it it may be 1" pipe on the other whatever a garden hose thread is. I just tig welded a...
Thought that would be a pretty easy question LOL
The fitting is your standard 3/4 to male pipe thread. A garden hose cap fits on good enough to seal. I would say a 1/4 bleed hole is what I have ( 3 smaller holes). If I have it apart I will take...
Ya, getting huge drops.
Just thought I would share my vaporizer.
Few copper fittings.piece of tin, hose clamp hot air blower. I did tig weld the tube and bottom on but you could probly make do with solder.
How many campden tabs to use to pasturize the must my old recipe calls for one and I've read 1/gal?
If I remember correctly you provided all drawn comb?
What was the temp when you had the Formic on?
If it was hot that can cause issues.
You should treat regardless but if you had a big robbing episode bees out front could be casualties. You have an entrance reducer on?
K-wing. I would treat again for varroa with oxalic like above poster noted.
You could also cage her and set the cage on top bars of a hive you tink may be queenless. See if the bees stick to it like velcro (balling) or walk around on it happy and can be moved off easily....
No this is for the last axtraction then toss the frame. Not for just the side tab broke off but all kinds of breaks.
The saver would be reusable.
Ya kilocharlie now your talken. Maybe a u chanel...
This is not to repair a frame.
It is so a broken frame can be run through the commercial extracting process one more time before it is culled.
Yes stainless is extreme but this needs to be thin...
Anyone have ideas or picks of what you use to run broken frames through a commercial extractor?
This is just for one more extracting then cull.
Im thinking thin wall stainless formed in a U shape...
I think I have an Italian swarm too. They love to steal.
My hives had a flury of activity the last few days too only it was snow not bees LOL
Looks like you had the odd robber trying to get in.
I guess we are discussing different situations hear but….
If you are talking heating water, it doesn't really mater the way, its the efficiency and cost. On demand are one of the most efficient...
If you have lots of season left I would fix. If not leave it till spring. Depends what they have for stores as well.
Ya that makes more sense.
For some reason I thought you were heating your honey house.
Ya most mount to the wall, but........
Where does your hot water go that heats your space?
Floor heat is most common, pipe in cement.
Forced air is next. Think heat exchanger with a fan.
Im not sure if you are using in floor or forced air.
Some things to consider.
Short term use of in floor isn't very efficient because you have to heat up a lot of mass (cement) before it starts...
I think our crop farmers have a very good crop going. They last 2 days of rain/snow are going to put a real damper on things. I'm hoping we get some heat next week for them.
