    The jacket I use from magnet man is top rate regarding snag resistance. I use it for cut outs as well. It has never snagged despite my craming into rough cut openings repeatedly. One of the yards...

    You can't go wrong with the suit from magnet man. I have his jacket, not his suit, but the bees can't sting through it at all. And, unlike the other suit/jacket, there is no need for duct tape at...

    I think it would be a good idea. If necessary, it could be a 'hidden' forum accessible only by those who were moderator approved, eg. commercial guys and hobbiest/sideliners who aren't spoiling for...

    my experience with Craig's list is that people go there for free stuff when it comes to bees. I can't afford to do extractions for free. Some swarms aren't free either.

    Sasha,
    I know that they are not 'treatments'. I also am very aware of the life cycle of the mite. I do know that for some reason that I cannot pin down completely my hives has very little varroa...

    I've had similar calls. I just shake my head in disbelief at what some pest control folks will do.

    Right now the only treatment I have used is Screened Bottom Boards. One hive I inherited was pretty badly infested. I did dust it with sugar and it is now booming along.

    Well, I don't know. Seems like an awful lot of work for an 'iffy' situation. If you are going to seal it off and leave the top open you might be better served using a repellent and driving them out....

    Absolutely.

    It is usually very hard work. I know of beekeepers who see it as easy money and bees. It is not, at all. They usually throw in the towel after one. Shoot, I've had them call me in...

    I just bought one of magnet-man's suits. He is making a square veil for me as well. The hood is nice, just not what I'm used to and I miss the shade of the brim when I am in the sun. I must say...

    For cleaning you can boil them in a sodium hydroxide water solution. It works well, goes fast; but you must be very careful. In essence you are turning the wax and propolis into soap.

    Sometimes a bee's abdomen will be ripped off in manipulation or some other activity. The poor thing will live for a short while. This is most likely what you saw. The deformation from varroa has...
