    Re: Oxalic acid & honey super

    Re: Oxalic acid & honey super

    The vaporized oxalic acid will permeate the brood boxes and make the crystals within minutes, if not seconds. I replace the supers after all the hives in the apiary have been treated sequentially...

    Re: Odd Comb on Plastic Foundation

    I presume the “accurate and unambiguous name for such comb” should be “parallel half comb”. I think many beekeeping people following Michael Bush would change the English language to describe such...

    Re: Team Beekeeping

    This mentoring program started April 28, 2019, after some brain-storming sessions with our core beekeepers. I lease about fifteen (15) acres of county-owned land in two (2) separate tracts next to...

    Re: Team Beekeeping

    Our local beekeeping club has created two (2) mentoring apiaries - a total of three (3) hives under my watchful eye. Any member of our group (about 25 beekeepers) have permission to inspect the...
  10. Re: What do you use to store capped honey frames?

    Your description is probably causing confusion. Until extraction, “capped honey frame(s)” are almost always stored in the same “storage boxes sold at online bee stores” - that is, the original honey...

    Re: Question for posters/ morning rant

    Ravenseye’s additional language is appropriate, and succinct. If it gets too long, people tune out. I would appreciate a new beekeeper asking why “beekeeping is local”. Such a person is...

    I have no doubt that some people are reluctant to include identification information, but there is no reason that your company cannot require a location, perhaps as large as a...

    Re: hive inspection

    Please add to your profile so the location is identified- many answers are dependent upon that information.

    Re: Question for posters/ morning rant

    Radar - thanks for your efforts; please ask VerticalScope to restore “location” to required field status. I accept the concept “all beekeeping is local”, and my North Dakota bees would be dead if I...

    Re: Question for posters/ morning rant

    What happened to proper identification of the “location” of new beekeepers - it is sometimes critical to proper understanding of both inquiry and answer!

    Re: QUEEN EXCLUDERS

    Queen excluders are the answer to your stated objective; in my personal experience, no adverse effects have been observed. When nectar exists, which gives them a reason to pass through, it is easily...

    I have not been to your community, but it looks like you are in Contra Costa County, California. Here is a link to the local beekeeping group’s “report a swarm”. Good...

    Re: Alcohol Wash vs. Counting Drone Larve

    Use powdered sugar instead of alcohol; no killing of bees and supposedly very similar results (compared to alcohol) when performed according to accepted practice.s

    Re: Honey in dead hive

    Welcome to beekeeping. Beekeeping is local, so you should identify your location in the profile area, and do not assume a Michigan beekeeper can do something because someone in Missouri or Virginia...
  25. Re: Is there a leaflet written to show landowners why they should host beekeepers

    Welcome to beekeeping. If you add your location to the published profile it may help - as you are aware, the laws in the UK are different than those in the USA even since we tossed the English hives...
