    I followed the ebay discussion to the following site and it was interesting.
    http://members.cox.net/bullseyebees/_sgg/f10000.htm

    Leads me to several questions. 1) Does anyone else have such a homemade site? Then more specific for Mr Bill: 2) THe pictures of the tree, I think it was paulomonia or something like that, is this the tree I have heard discussed as both good and bad regarding wood use and invasivness? Is it a bee attractant and for what? 3) THe large bug/bee crawling on your hand, what is it and what is bad about it? 4) Is the hive loader homemade? How do you attach it to hives? How many can you fit on the trailer using just the loader?

    I thought about making a similar kind of loader using an ATV type winch but ended up buying wheeled loader that eliminates a lot of work for me. Looks great and thanks for putting the link up. Anyone else?

    Allen Dick's site, not to be confused with Dick Allen, who may or may not have a site.

    Finding honeybeeworld (I think in a different format) years ago was more pleasure than finding certain magazines as a teenager...It was truly fascinating to read the diary of a large beekeeper.

    This is mine. No real organization or purpose except to show things I've been trying to explain one time or another or things I'm experimenting with.

    dcross, you are correct, he may or may not have one. In fact, he does not.

    MB, thank you. How did you attach the angle iron to the frame of the Mann Lake carrier? I need to do this also.

    The frame was welded on by the local welder. I suppose one could drill holes and bolt a frame on, but I think welding is better.

    I just have a site with some information on what we do and some pictures of yards and bees.
    The pictures on the second page are mostly of a packages being installed with an old friend and his son. He was killed a few months later, but his son is still active with some hives. The local club by them in NJ has done alot of work with him and help them quite a bit.
    The little one, is my youngest beekeeper. He was 4 at the time we hived those packages. He has claimed 6 hives as his own so far.

    Cool

    My website is http://www.trianglebees.cjb.net/

    Not much, but I'll be adding stuff from time to time. I finally got around to cropping the pictures so that they load much faster.

    I also have pictures of bees working the tree.

    >3) THe large bug/bee crawling on your hand, what is it and what is bad about it?

    It is a cicada killer. Just kind of scarry looking bug. I should probably remove it as it may be confused with a bee to a non beekeeper.

    >4) Is the hive loader homemade?

    Yes, custom made.

    >How do you attach it to hives?

    I have a clamp much like an old ice tong that was used to haul large blocks of ice. It hooks into the handholds but you need to ratchet strap the hive first.

    >How many can you fit on the trailer using just the loader?

    Around twenty four.
