    Default Video?

    Is there a good video available that shows good close-up examples of grafting larva for queen production? If so, by whom and available where?
    Thanks.

    I've really enjoyed watching those IWF German videos. The one on queen rearing is very good, I've watched that one many times. The direct links to them used to be stickied in the Disease and Pests forum which made is easy to go back and watch them again.

    I really enjoyed the IWF video. Not just the part on queens but also interesting equipment.

    Does anyone know the particulars of the "space below the bee floor"? It appears to be a combination of empty space and a place to place a feeder.

    Space below is a very old way of ventalating hive. They use to have a 2" space for winter and they slid a "pallet" into the hive for the spring/summer flow, to keep the bees from filling the space with comb. Probably the "first" slatted bottom. I was surprised it was still being used myself.

    Another thing I saw in those German videos was a Hive Scale.

    They slid it in under the hive and pulled down a lever arm that lifted the whole hive up to weigh it and set it back down.

    I want one of those. That is a cool thing to have. The ability to weigh every hive in the yard in like 15 seconds each is a powerful tool.

    Does anybody know where to buy one?

    that was a neat video. very informative. i also think some of the equipment was interesting. here's a link to some other beek videos from them.

    they have a neat, albeit time consuming, way to deal with varroa if you watch the video, "dispersion of the old colonies". also, "work in a heather skep apiary during the prime swarming period" was fun to watch.
