    Re: Should Holes Be Sealed With Wax Or Tape?

    How many holes and how big is the hive? With a SBB just leave one at the top.

    When does a person trust a SWAG made on so many assumptions. Maybe this isn't science.:D

    Re: BTU's of honey

    If you measured the weight loss of a hive you could swag the heat the bees put out.

    20,000 watts yeah I would say so. I know we cannot stand to have 10 people in our dining room with the windows open in the middle of winter.

    Ask him how many hives he has in the building and SWAG it at 50-60K bees per hive.

    Re: Bees Only Heat the Cluster, Not the Hive?

    You should have Rader calculate the latent heat and pounds of water pumped into those buildings per hour. He is infallible when it comes to science projects like this.:rolleyes:

    Re: How Cold Before SHB Die?

    That is what bugs me. Park Outdoor brought in 5 ft of sand to raise the grade under their sign so they could raise the height of the sign 5 ft. Then they put a thin layer of "topsoil" over the sand...

    that is the problem with glue alone. If you flex the joint the glue will break and if there are no nails the joint comes apart. Beehives are not furniture or cabinets. The joints are subject to...

    Actually you are wrong Wayne. You can become a license professional engineer without having a degree by learning on the job and passing the state exam.
