    Re: Mountain Camp

    i remember MountainCamp. He hasn't posted in quite a while but he might amused to read your imaginative account of "his" method.

  2. Re: Orientation flights as a mark of healthy hives?

    [wet blanket alert]

    You can count on it as a sign of brood hatching out but isn't a surefire sign that all is right in the hive. A hive could have gone queenless during the past couple weeks and...
  3. Poll: Re: Poll for category on Acebirds posts (to replace post counts)

    Well if Ace wants it gone, then it most definitely must stay.

  4. Poll: Re: Poll for category on Acebirds posts (to replace post counts)

    When I saw this thread title I didn't notice who posted it and clicked on it to see who would be so juvenile and cruel. Now I see I was partly right, though not cruel but pathetic.

    Are we back in...

    Re: Robbing? Orientation?

    I see no signs of robbing activity, just orientation flights and normal coming and goings. If it were robbing, you would have seen an obvious battle at the landing board, far more than the two normal...

    Re: cement blocks on top of Hives?

    I've seen hives secured by ratchet straps torn apart by bears. |

    Stones work fine for me to keep the lid on. For bears, use a properly designed and installed electric fence.

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    You make a point that water is removed. How does that 5 gallons get removed from a hive using a quilt box? You're saying it doesn't get trapped but is actually removed?

    Curious.

    Re: Chilled Brood???

    That would be me. Not that you are confusing me, but using a made-up term that has meaning only to you is of no value to anyone that reads it. If the OP is describing parasitic mite syndrome, than...

    Re: When to add/remove feeding shims ??

    Unless I'm missing something, remove the shim when bees are done feeding. You do need to peek in periodically during the winter to determine when.

    Re: Oh Crap.... My TF Hives are Crashing!!!!!

    By "in tune" I mean aware of and able to recognize a problem or at least recognize that some problem exists and address it in some fashion. This is a far cry from being ignorant of them. I was...

    Re: Oh Crap.... My TF Hives are Crashing!!!!!

    Most beekeepers who consider themselves "treatment-free" that I have come across are very in tune with diseases and mites and are looking for alternatives to treating.

    Perhaps you are confusing...

    Notice that you are the only one (that I'm aware of) that does this? There's a reason for it.

    I've never forgot to cut the frame rests but I have cut handholds upside-down.

    Congratulations on salvaging your boxes. Now you have time to work on your not-too-cleverly-disguised swearing.

    These odd frames usually come about during a moment where a frame must be inserted in a box and a proper size is unavailable at that moment. Example, when you are checking bees in a yard 20 miles...

    I have been sticking medium frames into deep boxes for so long that nearly every one of my deep brood boxes has at least one "double hybrid frame" like that. They work as well as any "proper" deep...

    Re: Do you enjoy killing puppy's ?

    Actually, as a responsible beekeeper and out of respect for my neighbors, I follow the girls around with a tiny little pooper-scooper.
