    I've been using OAV at 7-10 day intervals, 4x. I've been pleased with the results. Oldtimer suggests 4x at 5 day intervals. Can someone familiar with the mite life cycle comment on most effective...

    If you are treating with MAQS, I would say 90 is indeed too warm.

    Re: Plastic Top Feeder?

    The inserts (you provide the box) from ML are $16.95, the complete feeder is $26.95. I've talked to folks that fill them with water during the heat of Summer and have eliminated bearding.

    Re: Plastic Top Feeder?

    I have the ML plastic hivetop feeders with the wire cage. They'll hold several gallons of syrup. The only drowning I've had was when the cover wasn't on securely. Kind of pricey, though.

    Usually here Snowdrops come and go before bees are flying. On the rare occasions the two things happen at once, bees visit them. Hard to imagine a patch big enough to do much good. Crocus are usually...

    Re: Central Ohio-Grove City Bee Ordinance

    Agree with everyone that the nuisance wording should be more specific. Cop getting stung sounds like BS, unless he was trespassing and bothered your hive.

    I had positives printed and cast them in a 2 part silicone to make the actual mold. I can always make a new mold if it doesn't hold up.

    Re: Moving bees up from deep to mediums

    I vote for option 4. In Spring, they will probably have moved up out of the deep and you can just pull it.

    Thanks for cheering me up.
    I'm in a forested area. The majority of our forage is trees. The early stuff didn't bloom this year. Honey is pretty dark.
  25. Re: Not seeing much discussion on harvests- how's everyone doing?

    Southeast Ohio. Cold Spring, no early crop. Dry Summer, poor harvest.
