    Re: Black Friday Sales

    What Larry (snl) said. It is usually explained in the catalogue. Try to source locally, go foundationless, or wait until it gets warm again. I might have some I could send you to tide you over. I am...

    Re: Need Bees to move along

    I am interested in how this all turns out as well. Who knows, after seeing the in and outs of beekeeping, you may decide that it is way cool and find the time to become a beekeeper yourself!

    Re: Need Bees to move along

    Seems to be a nice small sized swarm. I am not familiar with the temps in SoCal, but if winter stays above 60, I don't see why a local beek would not come get them for free.

    Re: Low cost bee box construction

    I doubt you are any more humid than we are here in Richmond, VA. I do like Frank and use rabbeted joints on the boxes I make, but like the tight fitting joints of a well made finger joint. The...

    Re: Convert deep nucs to mediums?

    Re: Convert deep nucs to mediums?

    And that is supposed to be less traumatic to the bees than simply cutting the foundation out of the frame, cutting the bottom 3" off, and rubber banding back into a medium? (he askes with a sly grin...

    Re: Convert deep nucs to mediums?

    The easiest way is to stack two mediun boxes and put 5 of your drawn medium frames in each. Set the five deep frames from the nuc in the top box and let them hang down. Rotate the deep frames out by...

  18. Re: How many OAV treatments in winter can they tolerate?

    Username, just treat the darn bees now if you haven't already, and again at the end of the month. I did this regimen last year, had 100% survival rates, and had a zero mite count in March when the...

    Re: Is the Bee-Space necessary ?

    This was 10 frames in a 10 frame box, standard dimensions. I do not scoff at the idea that bees prefer to build comb in certain directions, although I think it may have more to do with how the sun...

    The bees were most likely too tightly clustered for the OA to be effective. Wait for a day when the the sun is out and the temps are above 40F, then hit them again with a shot. Mite count should be...
