  4. Re: What would you charge? or how would you handle this?

    I was offered a similar deal and I did walk away from it. They don't understand how much it costs to maintain hives in addition to the equipment etc. Write it out to them, plus the time and they...

    Straining versus filtering. Filtering implies to people that all pollen has been removed, even if it is not true. I prefer the word straining.

    I use a 600 micron bucket strainer. Anything...

    Re: Yeast smell coming from hive

    My hives smell like it each fall when they are making bee bread with their pollen. It is normal. Bees cannot digest pollen as is, they need to ferment it with yeast. You may not notice that when...
  11. Re: Now I understand why NOT to open a hive at night!

    Funny I never had the issue with them doing that. I'm trying to find out why it is happening with some. Here is how I do it. I treat when all the supers are off and they are done for the season. ...

    You are now seeing the primary reaction. In 12 hours you get the secondary reaction. In my experience the secondary reaction is always worse then the first. See a doctor, especially with that many...

    Re: Honey Robber Smells!

    I have given up on using it. First it worked, now my bees give a hoot about it. Plus the nasty smell. I now only use smoke and a goose feather to get the bees off. Works just fine. Perhaps not...

  17. Re: How long to let a colony 'clean' extracted frames?

    I do the same thing. Set them out for robbing. They are done after 4 hours and all you have to do is store your frames.

    Re: What filter/strainer do you use?

    I use the 5 gallon bucket with and 600 micron filter. Found the other sizes to be a waste of time. My rule is 5 full super frames at a time, no more. This works quite nicely with a few hives, and...
  19. Poll: Re: What are your opinions on Apiguard and Hopguard?

    Hopguard is great, if used in 3 weekly treatments in a row. A one time treatment, as the package states, is insufficient.

    Funny never had that issue. I wonder if that has to do with the temperature when you apply the treatment. I'm in the mountains and apply them rather late. Temps are around or below 65 for sure...

    Hopguard kills tracheal mites too. Pretty much all of the miticides used for varroa tackle tracheal at the same time. That is why there is less checking for it now those days. It has become a...
