Ditch the trash pumps!
Do your best to keep the weather out of the supers with good lids
They work well. Its all in what your prefrence is lots of peeps use them. Jim lyon has one in the for sale section.
How deep are your pockets? How much use are you gonna get out of it??
There is a place and market for this type of honey. Ive seen them before, maybe try asking the same question on another part of the forum. Ive seen the lavender, chille and vanilla infused stuff...
Is the honey that bad that you need disguise the flavor???
Im putiin this up front just giving you a hard time so i dont catch trouble in the end
Alot of peeps some 2 like the infused honeys.
Ha lol. Happy turkey day 2 all
Everything must be cheaper out in cali. You would have more than that in just materials alone. Not 2 mention time and labor puttin em together!!
Ditto i paint the edges of mine also. I know the steel ply lids and pallet decks will easily last 10-15yrs if taken decent care of. But how does treated decking last in comparison?
How much longer will the steel ply last vs the plywood??
Thats cheap to assemble them, but as far as providing the wood, but do you have to rip down the lumber 4 the bee space boards and under the clips?
There prolly isnt that many beeks looking into ohio. Better watchout hh all the cali guys will be shiping bees your way. He might just be a great beekeper in the secluded or small area he is in.
Why do you use plastic liners in drums??
If you go the wooden route make sure to have it made to match up with dimensional soft lumber.
Wooden deck, lots of tie down hooks for ropes.
Best of luck 2 u get er done. I apoligize for my earlier comment.
Are u attributing loss due 2 varroa? As bad as 2yrs ago?
Just stirrin the pot. Bmac, like i said i know things come up and out you get under the gun.
Seen that its sux
But dont u think alot of it has to do with ppb and half a$$ed bee outfits?? It amazes me, what have some beeks been doin for the last couple of months? I know stuff goes wrong in the honey house...
Ditto on that as far as treatments go. There musta been some awfully big crops this year with all the beeks still not finished extracting! Heard of lots in the last couple weeks!!!!!
There are bee suppliers that sell winter patties. Or make your candy boards much cheaper
I leave lids off till your done and ready to leave the yard. Dont know why, always grew up doin that it doesnt change much of anything they will still rob off the truck pretty bad
Short winter? Is there such a thing up there?
Wow those flails look like they are right out of a Dakota gunnnes
