Re: Greetings from Clinton, Utah... Researching Beehive heating/warming
Thanks BGHoney, I've not seen similar heating projects of the scale that your describing prior to joining beesource recently. Michael Bush's threads were some of the larger scale that I've, recently learned, exist. I'm sure its my own ignorance and lack of exposure. I show 12 years with 2 recently in my signature, which is true, however the first 10 were in my youth with my father, and frankly nearly 30 years ago. I started my more recent passion when I caught my swarm 2 years ago late in the season, and you know the rest, however with the huge losses last year and in recent years, I'm amazed that there is not an all out war against winter loss, with brilliant minds from all over the globe, expending major resources on the problem. And again, this is probably the case, but I just haven't been connected to the industry to see it. But if this were the case, I would expect a whole lot more hats in the ring, with products and research, (more recent than the 1950's) readily apparent when I search.
So thanks again for your responses. I'm encouraged to learn of yourself and Michael, with serious efforts being applied to the problem!
Again, I am very interested in further dialog with yourself and Michael and any others that are working on the heating possibilities, but as I am new to the forum and may have error'd in starting this thread in the "WELCOME" forum, perhaps somebody like Barry could respond quickly and advise me on protocol. Should I open a new thread in the BEES forum, or should/could this thread be moved to a more appropriate forum?
