    Re: Frame rack

    For you guys who store foundation on a rack or open box: Don't you have a problem with mice? I store mine in the hive boxes, sealed with ply on each end, or in totes. I do this for convenience but...

    Re: bees dying off every morning

    Are the wings deformed on the dead, or live bees? If I knew the hive did not have a high mite load, I would not be concerned with 10 dead bees. Its probably just the summer bees dying off at the end...

    Re: Foamboard cutting tip

    My friend and co-worker and I were cutting foamboard on a table saw one day, and as he was feeding and I was taking off, I felt something hit my face. It was the tip of his finger and blood. He...

    Foamboard cutting tip

    I don't know why I didn't think of this before, but I had to cut 2" foamboard for wrapping my hives and instead of using a utility knife with a long blade and snapping, I reached for my Japanese Pull...

    Re: Bee Escape Not Working

    Asking the obvious, but did you place the triangle board with triangle down? No answer as to why they won't move unless your board was not orientated correctly. But I will say that it usually takes 2...

    Re: Moisture Box for Overwintering

    I add a shim to the top hive box with a hole that serves as an upper entrance for winter and for ventilation. Above that, I set my quilt box which as a rim near the bottom onto which I place a framed...

    Re: What to ask at allergy Dr

    If you are worried then sting yourself with a loved one nearby and some benadryl handy. If you have a bad reaction, take the benadryl and head to the ER. I tested myself when I first got bees by...

    Re: Fall Feeding

    Not sure about your area, but I would want them to have a lot more stores if they were where I live. It's getting late in the season so I would feed them with 2:1 in paint cans to make them take it...

    Re: What Pollen Are They Gathering Now In NE?

    Thanks Mike. I took a walk and a ride and the only thing I am seeing is some Asters, so I am assuming that is what they are bringing in. I am surprised because there isn't a lot left, but they are...

    Re: oa dribble freqency

    Agree with above that only one single treatment is recommended. People around me who dribble do it in the winter when they are broodless. J

    Re: What to ask at allergy Dr

    If you are allergic to pollen, you know that is a potential problem, right? Perhaps it can be dealt with by wearing the proper protection depending how allergic you are. You could ask for a bee venom...

    Re: BT On Honey Frames

    Put off doing the honey frames hoping to hear an opinion. Anyone? If I don't know for sure I will rotate through the freezer and store them in a bin. J
  21. Re: Orange pollen in Early october, Northeast US?

    There is no dandelion in Vermont. Occasionally you might see one or two this time of year in a sunny location in someone's yard. Most were gone by the end of June. There might be more further south,...

  24. Re: Taped seams created moisture buildup- hopefully removed it in time

    I doubt the tape is the issue. Bees seal my hives air tight with propolis and I don't have a mold issue with proper ventilation. If I mess with the boxes late in the season, I seal them with...

    Re: Problem with oxalic acid wand

    What JP said is your first step with a fully charged battery. If it gets hot but doesn't vaporize, I suspect your OA has too much moisture. Last thing I would suspect is the wand, given its age.
