  1. Re: $10 to make a vaporizer, so why buy one for $190?

    Because I earned way more than the $160.00 or whatever I paid for my Varrox with the time it would have taken me to source parts and build my own homemade contraption.

  10. Re: This has got to be laying what?

    If it's not eggs maybe varroa mite feces?
  11. Re: This has got to be laying what?

  12. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow" - Flow Hive

    LOL. Future Craigs List Ad: "For sale; Flow Frames recently infected with AFB but they've been cleaned $$.$$" Who's buyin'?!

  17. Re: He bought a flow hive!

    Perhaps they won't be a problem because the cells are plastic unless they are attracted to the honey or capping's?
  18. Re: He bought a flow hive!

    For all the new beekeepers this invention seems to be attracting, they need to understand how to deal with shb, how to keep a colony strong enough to defend against them, otherwise they could be...

    Re: Community feeders

    As long as you're confident there are no other beekeepers with 5 miles of each yard it should work. Otherwise someone else is getting free feed and a super full of sugar syrup :(
