    I know about the lungs. I've used them before. However, smoke induced resperatory illness kills about 4 million people a year. About 1/3 of the worlds population still cooks over a fire. You may...

    Re: Bee Smoker Designed for the Third World

    I've looked at it. It may work, but it also makes it so the smoker cann't be set down. I've got 2 other alternatives that seem more promising. A coiled spring inside made from wrapping wire around a...

    Re: Bee Smoker Designed for the Third World

    Got caught up with work. Solved a tough geospatial problem, landed a big contract, had to hire a bunch of people, then manage the growth. All that distracted me from beekeeping.

    Re: rectangle swarm catcher

    The manufacturer is targeting pest control, not beekeepers. So it is a marketing focus problem.

    Hey, it is nice to see my book reviewed and posted here on BeeSource! Good timing, too. Winter is the best time to build swarm traps, so folks should read the book and get to work building swarm...

    Influential Beekeeping Bloggers?

    Hi! Some know me from my YouTube beek channel. Well, I accidentally got sidetracked and wrote a beekeeping book while trying to prepare for an ambitious DVD beekeeping project.

    Yep, two of the nominees have 25,000 subscribers to my humble 700. I'm afraid the voting power is proportionate as well. But we'll try!
  14. Beekeeper votes Needed! Beekeeping channel Nominated on YouTube!

    Woot Woot! :banana: Many already know I have the biggest beekeeping channel on YouTube.

    YouTube has just nominated my beekeeping channel, OutOfaBlueSky, for YouTube's On-the-Rise competition....

    Re: A Question for TBH Experts

    It is true. TBH are not good in the North. No TBH has survived near the north pole or in Antarctica to date.

    However, I've hear rumors of one in Spitzbergen.

    Re: Early Spring Honey Harvest

    I'd easily take 4 bars safely. Especially if pollen is already coming in.
  19. Re: DFW area bee capture question - when to capture?

    I concur with that, don't remove them from a tree. Free bees from bee trees are not free bees at all. 7 hours later, you might have a hive that has a 66% chance to survive.

    Forget the lure, just just Lemon Grass oil which does the exact same thing and much much cheaper.

    Re: Swarm Trap questons from a Newbee

    I put out 10 traps last year and caught 6 swarms. The trick is to put them out before you get busy with other things. Spring is chaotic for beeks.
