    I keep thinking about these things. Seems like you could use them somehow on a hive to provide hands-off, maintenance free ventilation at the proper temperature. They "open" at a certain temperature, then close again when the temp drops. There's an operating range, so it's not perfect, but it seems that using bimetal physics would work. Or a stick under the cover...

    There's a marketing idea. A ventilation system made up of four popscicle sticks. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Have you two been looking at Ebay recently? You could probably sell something like that to those folks. I'd make them with used Popsicle sticks in different flavors.

    p.s. My favorite is the big black and red sign that reads "Warning - Beware of the Killer Bees". There's something a beekeeper wants on his property.
