  1. Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    I use all 8 frame mediums which works well for me. Odfrank has been preaching the gospel of using "jumbo" hive boxes and frames for years so I can't blame him for not readily "coming out" that he's...
  2. Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    Actually, Odfrank has asked me to help him cut down his boxes to 8 frame. Something I did after I first started. I converted from 10 to 8 frames and now he has seen the wisdom in doing the same thing.

    Moto,

    I've never had that problem here in California with Argentine ants.

  7. Re: Secret to successful Baithive trapping - Firewood, driftwood, bark

    I place bricks on my traps to secure my lids. Does that mean bricks attract swarms?

    He's becoming more like the renegade Col. Kurtz in Apocalypse Now. We're all starting to worry about him!

    I'm afraid swarm trapping has led Ollie down a dark path of delusion.

    I've found the flat tapered end works the best!
  12. Re: Has anyone found a soluton for this Bushkill vac problem?

    Like Barry, I've never had that problem either but, from what liljake already said, I think that's the obvious solution.

    Mark and Bill, I for one am happy to know we have a bee psychologist in ODFrank!
  14. Re: Denmark - how to get bees in a Langstroth if local beehives are different type

    Make friends with other Beekeepers in your area then covertly place lure boxes reflecting what you presently use near their apiaries. This is better than fishing blind since you're not familiar yet...

  16. Re: "A swarm in July, isn't worth a fly." Still July in a hot climate?

    I'm a witness to Tank's queens. I've caught two of his swarms already and they're very productive. I'm even going to share with him a little honey his bees have made so far this season!:lpf:

    Re: San Francisco/Peninsula Bait Hive Challenge

    Still no swarm capture yet but that doesn't prevent Ollie from rubbing it in my face every time he makes a catch elsewhere. I GAVE him a whole case of Mann Lake PF 125's frames yesterday but that...

    Tank,

    Think about the collateral damage with your drone strike. You may hit Ollie's traps!

    Tank,

    In Ollie's anger over your priceless depiction of me in post #50, he has revealed unto me the location of your beeyard which is actually closer to my traps than his beeyard. Could it be that...

    Through diligent research I have discovered that my last two swarm lures were near your San Mateo Bee Yard Tank. I'm afraid that what you have feared has come upon you!

    Tank,

    That is too good. I do have to say that I did bring Ollie a nuc of my best black German bees today because I felt bad I was catching all his swarms.
