    Re: Testing a Electric Bear Fence.

    They told me in college not to do electrical stuff with my left hand, because the current would have a better chance of flowing through my heart and killing me. Not sure if it is 100% true or not,...

    Re: Testing a Electric Bear Fence.

    I just grab mine with my right hand. It lets me know if it is working fairly quickly. I also have a 3 foot piece of 12 gauge insulated wire out of some romex that I stripped about an inch off each...

    Re: All hives must have movable frames.

    I can't let this go without a comment. How much of our food supply do you think is actually inspected by government officials? What is this notion that if regulatory agencies ceased to exist, that...
  6. Re: Do the bees in a dead frozen hive all fall to the bottom?

    I've had hives that dead bees clogged up the works almost totally in the bottom box and bottom board over the winter, and everything was just fine inside up above.

    Re: Is getting stung pretty common

    Re: Best gloves.

    This is what I use:

    When a stinger gets through, it isn't a very significant sting. Merely pinching the glove...
  9. Re: Fogging bees for mites - The Fat Bee man does it. Do you?

    Mineral oil is a byproduct of the manufacture of gasoline. That means that it is just as natural as ammonia, vasoline, and chemical fertilizer. Cyanide and lead are even more natural than that. ...

    Re: What's going on with Ultra Breeze?

    I thought I heard that Mann Lake's ventilated jackets and suits were made in India on this forum. I could be wrong. Regardless, if it was, the Indian person who sewed my ventilated suit together...

  12. Re: is it possible for the bees to OD on sugar syrup?

    Are you sure that it isn't battling between multiple hives going on, trying to rob the feeder, causing the body count?

    Re: I guess it figures

    Probably, but I won't make that judgement call until then. The queen in that hive currently is one that they built from brood from another one of my hives this spring, after his package queen...

    Re: I guess it figures

    Yeah, I guess I probably am bragging a bit. I've also got a 12 year old that could care less about bees. I'm not sure what exactly is making his hive pissy. Being a good sized hive in September is...

    I guess it figures

    The boy (9) wanted a hive this year. We bought him a package, and he has had a lot of fun having his own hive. Not that it really makes a difference, as we have 10 other hives, and he helps me a...

    Re: Smokers in cars?

    I use an ammo can for a 40mm grenade. It's labeled as a can for m385a1 dummy grenades. Plenty of room for a big Mann Lake smoker.

    I'm going to go pick up some alcohol and ship some out. What do people usually use, a ball jar?
  23. Re: Nervous...bees on the ground, signs of dysentery

    The poo is mostly limited to the ground where the bees are. It's not the dark stuff like you sometimes see in the spring. When I went out this morning, there were still the same pile of bees on the...
