    I would throw them away. to use a shortcut to build a quality frame makes no sense.
  2. Re: Wax dipping, wood polarity, and hardening oils

    If you pick up a dipped super it is heavier than normal. the wax that goes into the wood displaces air which reduces the r factor. think about it. wood does breathe. It may not be a large factor but...

    Re: what would you do?

    just stick with med. If you have a good product and price they will sell. having both is shooting yourself in the foot. everybody sells deeps but med is the new market with little competition. any...

    any moisture is displaced and the wax is sucked into the wood. must be done outdoors unless you have good fire insurance. after treating all insulating quality of wood is gone. not good for wintering...

    Re: HoneyBees and Appletrees

    most planting for bees makes the beekeeper feel good but does not do much for bees. they have to forage over a large area. (acres)

    Re: getting towns to ban polinators

    too think of turning to government for a solution as said would not be good. isolate your nuc yard or make nucs earlier so they can defend themselves. you have to adapt to the situation. being a...
  9. Re: Queen Bees Control Sex of Young After All

    no. I think that the author (matt Kaplan) is repeating known research rather than an expert in bee research.
  10. Re: Queen Bees Control Sex of Young After All

    sometimes it may be best to study the background of the author rather than the article.

  17. Re: Size of DADANT 9 frame vs 8 frame spacers

    watch the fingers. good weekend to buy new saw blades. lots of sales.
  18. Re: Size of DADANT 9 frame vs 8 frame spacers

    the length is the same but the frame spacing is 8 or 9 frame as stated. they should not be used in in the brood nest as the bee space is wrong.
  19. Re: Why would workers ball young queen in a nuke?

    the fact that you saw it after opening the hive should have been your first clue. just basic beekeeping. many on here have the same problem with package bees. they look for a queen soon after the...
  20. Re: Why would workers ball young queen in a nuke?

    one reason for bees balling the queen is caused by the beekeeper opening the hive too soon with a young queen. experienced beekeepers leave alone for a few weeks.

    Re: Is there a viable business in "Bees Only"?

    the farther north you go the harder it is to raise queens and packages. that's why most queens and pkgs come from the south. that's why nucs have been more popular in the north.
