    Making hand holds on bee boxes

    I just checked my video on u-Tube, "How to make hand holds on bee boxes using a circular saw safely" and it has had 49,978 hits. Should go over 50,000 in a day or two. When I put it on u-Tube, I...
  3. Re: Gallon Glass Jar With Standard Mason Lid?

    I also have several that I use for feeding nucs, but, I have only found them at auctions, flea markets, etc. Most of the time they sell for $2.00 to $4.00 each. I don't know if they still make...

    Re: 40" Nylon Spatula alternative

    Very good idea odfrank. You have a big heart.

    I only have a half dozen or so that uses the honey house so, I just use the spatula to funnel the honey toward the gate.

    Re: My 8 Frame reflections, so far.

    Make a simple follower board, and start your packages as a five frame, then 6 frame, then 8 frame and finally a 10 frame. That way you never have to transfer frames and make the bees reclean a new...
  7. Re: Walnut or Butternut for hivebodies

    Of course. Thousands of bee colonies live in cedar.

    I think you could likely sell the cedar, and, get twice as much pine or poplar to build your hives, One down side of cedar is, you will...
  8. Re: Argentina made bee suit from Miller Bee Supply

    Thanks Radar. For just coveralls, that is way too much to spend. I will keep looking.

    Re: Swarm catcher boxes

    Mr. Beeman.... Last year I only had one out, and, it caught one. I did not put it out as a swarm box, but, rather, I had brought it to Florida, (it was a totally new box) for my sister, and, she...
  10. Re: Argentina made bee suit from Miller Bee Supply

    Swarm catcher boxes

    Odfrank... I think you would be proud. When I left my home in Moore Haven Florida in March, I set out two swarm catcher boxes. One inside my shed where bees had previously come to, and another...

    Mark... My, Kelly 9 frame radial extractor , has a raised bottom toward the center, and, there is perhaps a quart of honey left in this void unless I tip the extractor. I will not unbuckle the...

    Re: Baffled from bee tree

    Mr Beeman... Not necessarily. There is one more possibility, They may still be on the limb. ( HEE!!, HEE!! (Joke, Joke).

    I agree with you. Odds are against it.

  15. Re: Gear for melting out honey directly from frames

    At some point, (and 4 pages may be it), there is no need to confuse someone with logic.

    This thread is not about asking advise, but rather, defending a course of action already decided upon.

    Re: Baffled from bee tree

    My guess is, Not a very good chance they will go into the box on their own. If you could have been able to knock a significant number of bees down onto the ground near your catch hive, you would...

    Re: Corrugated Metal Roof?

    It could possibly help some with cooling. And yes, there could be sharp edges. But, try it and see how you like it. It is not going to hurt anything, and you already have it. It is not going to...

    Re: Corrugated Metal Roof?

    As Michael Bush often states, "Yes you can", but, My question is, "Do you really want to." It no doubt will work, and yes I have seen some tops with it on them. It will provide voids for ants,...

    Re: Best Way to Cut Bees From Log?

    Do you have access to a camera tripod? Or can you sit the camera on a stool, bench, tub, barrel, or something? Lots of ways to get photos without having to hold the camera.

    Re: Need a SBB?

    If you have the capability to make your own woodenware,...
  24. Re: Considering all medium box hives, any reasons not to?

    kilocharlie... I agree with your post. I stay with 10 framers, and square hives (13 frames) because I have always had them, and I don't believe the wider, heavier, boxes will get blown over or...
  25. Re: Considering all medium box hives, any reasons not to?
