  3. Re: Newbee planning to go foundationless - what frames to get?

    I use the ML wedge top and just nail the strip in for a starter. I would suggest solid bottom pieces as another poster said the grooved or split give shb a place to hide. G

    Re: Scrap wood

    You need to get the Carpenters some new tape measures, in 46 years Ive never seen waste like that on a daily, weekly, or job basis. If I was the contractor buying that wood, i would be pissed. If i...

    Re: ordering supplies and long wait times...

    Never had Mann Lake take more than 3 days. If something is on back-order, they still ship what they have and don't bill you for back-ordered items until the item is shipped. Mann Lake=:thumbsup: G

  9. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow" - Flow Hive


    It seems out of balance to me too. Im not bashing anyone, I wish them well, and think its an interesting idea. My concern would be, when one seeks 70,000 for startup, and winds up with...

    Re: Double nuc under shared super

    So you did the test using deeps Vance. That makes sense, I thought splitting a single medium might be a little sparse. Unless I misread I think that was the posters proposition. I might try that with...
  13. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow" - Flow Hive

    I wish I didn't, but I'm afraid I agree 100% Agis. For those that keep bees, its obvious, for those that don't, its a "dream come true". Magical even........... G

    Re: Wiring Super Duragilt Frames

    I tried some duragilt last year, I don't think you need to worry about wiring it in supers. It is plenty sturdy on its own. Good Luck. G

    Re: Screen Shrubs for Virginia

    Rose of Sharon is a great pollen producer with long lived blooms. The Honeybees and Bumbles leave ours covered. I don't see ours on the privet as much, but only have a couple, and acres of white...
  16. Re: Is it considered standard practice to split a hive each year?

    I agree, and that's my plan. with 4 this year. I did it last year, with 2 and the one hive produced good surplus. G

  20. Re: Another day another mystery - Queen Balling??? Video

    If they successfully combine with a gentle queens hive, I would think the mean ones would just die off naturally. Might just boost the hive till the natural cycle occurs, then I would assume it would...

    Re: Dead Out Numbers/Winter Losses

    Good Luck Cub, 20 was going to be my number this year too, but if i get to 15 good ones going into next winter I will be happy. I too was fooled by the lack of fall flow, fed late, wont make that...

    Have and have not. I only treated when it looked dire. I have lost my share of hives. 3 of my 4 hives that made it through the winter have had no treatment, two being splits from last year off of the...

    Im new so salt it up, but last year I had one die with a full deep of honey above it. I suspect your last picture is the culprit. Through the many ways they can negatively affect hive health. Good...
