That is the Aussie spirit, mate!
Just think what the mailing list alone would be worth to Dadant, Mannlake etc!
I have had mine for a good number of years...is it 6 years? It is holding up very well. It is not white anymore but it all works. The elastic at the arm ends are worn but would be easy to replace.
Just finished the count and I agree with Michael...
I had a similar situation. I gave way too much and it was way too much work. I still drop off a jar of heney when I pass. There are things we should do not for money.
I sell bees, mostly FD singles. I sell quality gear, the boxes cost me more to make because they are rot proofed, the lids are expensive ones that will last and the bottom boards are...
Yes, mine are 18 and 19 and not interested in bees anymore. They both where when they where smaller.
Maybe the FLOW hive will bring them back:)
One day you may make it a little...
They look like western grey and your GD is a real cute one...but then they grow up.
I'm inland from Maroochydore and the picture could be taken not too far from here. If you visit her, drop in.
I have used rather expensive waterproof felt pens but since the Xylene is gone the pens are no good. A pencil it is. Best ideas are so simple.
I have now 30 hives.
We have an Electric uncapping knive, a couple of squer tubs to uncap into and a 4 frame , motorised extractor, some plastic buckets with strainer...that is it.
I do the same. The Q-tip will be found outside a hive after a few days
Go, do it! OH I believe has abolished the death penalty but our friend in AL could have ended up on the chair.
I have to agree. I use a fairly large boiler and place about 14 Full Size frames inside, boil up the water with the frames, shake off the rubbish.
I get fairly clean frames but very little wax. The...
I wonder if any of the tests have been done? I think they where promised last year around Spring?
Irradiation equipment loves plastic!
Now I got your attention....I have never used any of the escape boards.
I was just thinking , if an Escape Board like this or similar ( http://www.dave-cushman.net/bee/8wayescapebd.html)
Thing is in advertising, negative publicity is still publicity. This thing has gone truly viral.
OLDTIMER - you mentioned a while ago that everybody is writing to you about the FLOW hive.
"Max is a patent from 1940 still valid? I thought they had an expiry date?
I gather back then it was 17 years. Interesting - one of the cross section looks quite similar.
This looks interesting. Somebody should look into it a bit deeper:)
United States Patent US2223561
Don't you believe it. The kudos, magic of having a hive in the yard is huge.
I have clients who pay me much more to take care and harvest the honey than the honey is ever worth retail.
""My mate the bee keeper reckons it could open up a market for beekeepers to service hives for a fee. They come in a couple of times a year to check the hive for disease or beetle and any other...
"Bogdan's wife during a hive inspection" - I think this is the first time I see somebody using a Frame Lifter - cool. I sell them but have never used one.
Got it! I have never shown much interest in RL or Union. The term does not appear in Tennis!
beeware. I can hear you thinking...buy shares in indiegogo
"They rip the $2+ million on fast cars, gambling, hookers and blow....where's that leave Michael Bush?
The inventors are honest, hard-working Australians. We don't have fast cars, we...
