    Default Sqtcrk lives

    Mark is OK... he is just down south visiting his bees... here he is with me in my front yard.

    No wonder he's down in NC...I'm pretty sure that Red Wings fans are asked to leave NY during hockey season. And all this while we thought it was to "check on his bees". One more great mystery solved.

    Why are the supers stored on their sides? Do those frames have drawn comb? Is that the proper way to store them? I stored my drawn frames inside this year and last week found recent wax moth damage.

    To provide maximum light and air movement... to keep the wax moths away.... works pretty good. But they are not there too long before they go in for fumigation...

    What do you use for fumigation? Phosphine or Ethylene oxide? Or maybe something else?

    Phosphine... Dangerous.. but effective. As you no doubt know, one has to be licensed to purchase it.

    We use it (phosphine) commonly for fumigation. Yes, plenty dangerous. but we're licensed. We would use ethylene oxide, but it's not licensed for use here in WY. Why do you fumigate? AFB? Nosema? Other?

    Wax moths... small hive beetles. Wax moths can be voracious here in the south, I suppose neither of these are serious problems in WY.

    I enlarged your picture to get alook at Marks Fancy honey van and.......You guys both have big grins and your road map eyes are looking pretty Glassy!

    I am assuming you guys must both be allergic to Kudzu!! Oh wait, the Kudzu wasn't blooming when I was down last week?

    Mike, I really enjoyed your NUC talk at ABF. I should have tried to find Mark while I was there. I hope to see you you both at EAS in PA this summer. Dan

    Has Mark been on a health kick? He appears fitter in this photo than others I have seen.
