    Re: Moving a hive over rough terrain

    Johan, What does this mean?



    Did you leave a note or message on the hive warning people to stay away? Is it actually a hive, or colony of bees? Did you go back to get it? If this is a wooden...

    One thing nobody's asked yet, how heavy are the hives?

    Re: Temperature to kill pests?

    Fair enough, my reasoning is, when you get rains, Mosquito eggs are sometimes left to hatch when they get soaked for a certain period X number of times.

    In other words, if it rains enough to pool...

    I am thinking of everything in the hive that I might use. Mostly for SHB, but I found wax moth larvae. I have already rendered all the comb. I was thinking of freezing the eggs out, but decided I...

    Temperature to kill pests?

    Does anybody know at what temperature, and for how long would I have to keep it there to kill pests and eggs? I am thinking over 165 F (74 C) for 20 minutes or more.

    Re: stingless honey bees

    I don't think you will be able to keep them unless you live below the tropic. They don't sting, but they do BITE!

    Hello!

    Are you asking if to use Linseed Oil? I build flutes on occasion, and around 15 years ago I used boiled linseed oil. Turns out there are metals added to enhance the process of curing. ...

    Re: I think my bees are doomed.

    Well, I might have panicked. Both colonies seem to be in order. I have looked over major SHB infestation, and I don't see anything except fallen comb, nasty mess, and angry bees.

    Re: How long will they hang around?

    Hmmm. Instead of killling them, try putting a box or bucket there for them to get into. At night, take the container over to the hive and dump them there.

    Once we moved a hive about 150 ft, and...
