    Re: Warré Woodworking

    I can't say if you should pretreate with acetone first or not. I can say I didn't know about that or bother with it. I usually sand things before I glue them. Otherwise I just glued and screwed. ...
  2. Re: What type of bee hive is best for the home bee keeper

    I keep 10 frame langs (deeps and shallows) and Warré Hives. This winter I've decided to switch all but one Warré to 8 frame mediums.

    For me it's simply about compatibility my local bee friends...

    Re: Do Bees Ever Move Eggs to Queen Cells

    Saw worker carying a white bee sized larva during my last cutout. She was carrying it all over the bee vac cage.

    I've seen ants pick up eggs and carry them around but not bees.
  9. Re: Natural comb perfection vs. foundation imperfection

    When bees make a single cell do they go inside it? If I were building a hexaganal shaped wall with bricks I could build the entire thing without going inside, maybe it's the same with the bees.

    Re: An interesting observation

    My Italians fill empty frames and top bars in nice neat lines with no problem. I can't take credit, they just do it on their own. I don't even use starter wax or anything. I can literally just...

    Re: Sideliner wanna be questions

    Nice thing about two is also the redundancy. If one should break you could still limp along with the other till it's repaired.

    Re: used equipment

    I got started on used equipment and so far no signs of disease. I guess you take your chances every time. These days I build all my own stuff from scratch.

  15. Re: Survivor Hives, How to determine if it really is?

    Even a small percentage of AHB genes make ordinary EHB extremely aggresive. If they try to sting you for just walking close to the hive then it's likely they are AHB. Otherwise you can send some...

  17. Re: Survivor Hives, How to determine if it really is?

    In the United States all bees are derived from what was originally the bees of beekeepers. Honey Bees are not native to the Western Hemisphere and were introduced by man in the 17th century. In a...

    Re: Moving a swarm? Uncooperative bees.

    Moving a short distance I wouldn't bother trying to seal them inside. Move slow and they will hold on to the hive. I moved a boxed cutout last weekend with nothing but a mosquito net over the hive,...

    Re: First Cut-out today

    It was my pleasure! I now have a Warré Hive full of bees and brood comb from the cutout. A heck of a lot of work, but as you say rewarding. I would do it again.

    AstroBee beat me to it! Nice long breadknife if you can find one.

    Re: Sharing my favorite hobby with my Dad.

    My young son helped me build a Warré Hive last night. I held the the carpenter square steady and he drew the lines on the wood for me to cut.
