  1. Re: OA vaporizer - dedicated battery or the one in the truck?

    Frank, we just use the battery off the riding lawn mower. Light weight and about $25.00 for a new one. It carries enough voltage to get the job done. You can use regular lamp chord to make a longer...

    Re: How much hose on your bee vacs?

    35ft. It's like a waterslide straight down. Only time we use that much hose is when we have no where to set the catch box closer. Have used that length with success though.

    Re: How much hose on your bee vacs?

    I have found that a 12 ft. hose works for most jobs. Got hoses made up to reach 35 ft.
    You got a leaker in your setup! It doesn't take much suction.

    If they can get their head into it, they can slip their body on through.

    Does it look like that on the inside of the hive?
    If it does, I would bet you have a problem.

    Re: Trapping Experts, Will this Work?

    I've always used 10 frame deep bodies for swarm traps.
    Had a handful left when we switched over.
