    Re: Study on drone comb

    Maybe you don't want more worker sized cells in your hive. I can't tell you to. You have to figure that out on your own. The way I see it, the more worker cells there are potentially the more worker...

    Re: Study on drone comb

    Do you want to make your bees produce worker comb or do you want to argue semantics? Yes, they did it because you wanted them to and you took advantage of their natural tendencies.

    Re: Study on drone comb

    When one understands their natural tendencies one can get the results one wants more times than not. It works if you know what you are doing.

    Brian, if you want to see worker cell comb building...

    Re: 40" Nylon Spatula alternative

    Do you get enough honey out of your extractor doing that to make doing so that worth while? I can see doing so w/ buckets, since I just did so w/ 8 buckets in the last 4 hours. But I don't see the...

    My apologies. Maybe simply quoting w/out saying who from or that they were banned would be better in the future?

    At the right time of year and under the right circumstances one can influence one's colony to do what one wants.

    Re: Yellow jacket hanging around hive

    As is so true about many aspects of beekeeping, a strong colony will take care of itself, most of the time. Yellowjackets have their place in the ecosystem. But killing one or two won't effect the YJ...

    If you want to get worker comb drawn, one good way is to cut drone comb out of frames or even stick wired frames sans foundation into a nuc box, in the Spring, and make up a nuc that will either...

    Re: 40" Nylon Spatula alternative

    What kind of tank do you use a spatula on? I use a spatula to get the last of the honey out of my buckets, but I don't do the same w/ my bottling tanks. So what kind of tanks do you have?

    That seem rediculous. Mentioning the name of someone banned from beesource will get a Post Deleted? Did someone in Authority tell you that?

    Seems to me like you should put this demo off until you can do it out in the apiary. Gathering the proper number of bees and how one does that is crucial to the technique. Dumping sugar and shaking...
