    The sugar shake done properly is just as good as an achohol wash. The fallicay of the sugar shake is that it can be done without killing bees. If you dont shake hard enough and long enough to get...

    Re: Solar Wax Melter for JW Palmer

    Re: Dead outs

    When did you last see drone brood in the hives in question ?

    ================
    But the averages suggest, you can set your clock starting at the time your bees stop raising drones. Count ahead 2...

    Re: Best Queen rearing books

    When one first starts out with bees, queens are a precious resource to be horded. We watch for the queen, we are careful with the queen. When a colony is under performing we tend to think 'lets...

    Re: Slatted rack

    Even if the study showed a positive effect, still have to run the cost / benefit equation. If the benefit is small, then cost is high in terms of equipment and time, then why bother ?

    This is...

    Re: SARE FNE16-840 Conrad/Seeley TF study

    The question posed at a conference session two years ago. If we have a healthy, stable feral bee population living in a forest, how many colonies are dieing each year. Lots of mumbling in the...

    We start the spring feeding program in February, but dont start lifting frames till late March unless a colony shows a reason to look deeper.

    When we do our first look down into the brood, it's...

    Something to keep in mind, the hornets being discussed in Europe, and those recently found on the west coast are very different critters. If just using google to find information, note the...

    Unlikely it came from the nest that was found and destroyed, as that nest was in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, so a big chunk of water between the nest and where this one was found. I spoke to the...
