  1. Re: Oxalic Acid Vaporization - Questions and Answers

    I'm certain that it is based on volume. 2g for double deeps (or 3 mediums) and 1 g for a single. It's the area you are covering, not the number of bees for OAV.

    Re: Booming to dead in 5 weeks

    I have been using the Dadant winter patties for years with excellent results. The description at Betterbee makes them seem to be the same as the Dadant patties. This year I tried some from Mann Lake...

    Re: Spring feeding Dilemma

    UltraBee is not the correct emergency feed. It's meant to be a protein supplement and not winter feed. They should be using winter patties for emergency feed if they are buying them. Much depends on...

    Re: Do I need to buy bees?

    The "Flow Hive" will not relieve you of the need to understand how to be a beekeeper. The bees can't live in that box alone. They need regular comb to raise new bees and winter on. I would not...

    Re: Spring feeding Dilemma

    I'm feeding both sugar and pollen patties as of this week. I see at least one day a week in the forecast where they can have cleansing flights in my area. I want to make some serious nucs this season...

    Re: So excited

    I'm with Enj. The only hives I have that have their winter preps off at this time are dead. Wednesday's high is supposed to be 37 here. Winter is not over quite yet here and PA should be quite a...
  8. Re: question on feeding using left over honey

    I still feed sugar water as long as you have undrawn comb and there is no flow on.

    Re: OAV Finally registered

    I don't belive the states need to approve it since the EPA used what I think is Section 3 which approves it for the entire country. You might be thinking of stuff like HopGuard which has Section 18...

    Re: Time post treatment

    It looks like the registration is not gong to allow supers on. So if we want to come completely out of the shadows, I guess that's what we ought to do.

    Re: Time post treatment

    This is nothing scientific, but after watching one of my hives get vaporized through a clear inner cover I could see that after about 15 minutes I couldn't see any more vapors. This leads me to...
  16. Re: New enthusiast from MN, lots of questions!

    Good luck, Wade. The only thing I'll add is I would not used a screened bottom board in Minnesota. I think it's debatable where I'm at, but your girls will need all the help they can get to get...

    Found another dead nuc and a double deep hive that I'm sure is a goner. My plan to overwinter nucs needs some work. I'll be paying even more attention to Michael Palmer at the CCBA Annual...

    John, You're assuming the individual vaporizing will be exposed to formic acid. I'm pretty sure the oxalic acid does not turn into formic acid and go airborne and treat the bees. There may be some...

    Re: Methods to Combat Hive Beetles

    You're correct. There are a few advantages to living up north. Tomorrow's high is supposed to be 12 degrees here. Don't think we'll have a beetle problem this year as well.

    Vance, You better check you mail frequently. There a minor pest here now, but the guys down south will probably be shipping you more than a few.
