    Re: New fresh cut lumber

    I think using OSB as a deck would be considered negligence by a personal injury lawyer, and the court.

    Was your employer pleased to have the OSB "repairable asset"?

    Re: can someone explain to me this hive

    It's clear that Acebird hasn't read Walt's paper, and in spite of being the third highest poster he hasn't spent much time reading threads on Beesource.
  6. Re: WTB: Permacomb or Honey Super Cell Frames

    I wouldn't buy the green, U.S. made Honey Super Cell frames. They are poorly made. I have seen them, and the original Chinese made (white) frames are much nicer.

    Re: Is 55 a Safe Temperature to make Nucs?

    Are you worried about the low temperatures and chilled brood at all?
