    And along with no top ventilation goes wider opening for ventilation on bottom side.

    And in addition to that treatment in summer is complicated and/or expensive. So, in 'theory' very efficient winter treatment plus just a bit resistant bees and summer treatment could be skipped,...

    An alternative method for selecting treatment free bees should be offered to new optimistic beekeepers. The principle of method is not selecting from the best, but deselecting the worst, bees or...
  9. Re: Taped seams created moisture buildup- hopefully removed it in time

    The central part of current version of my top feeder is wider, but in first version was just like that on picture from 1880. I just wanted the central part to be removable that swarm can be shaken...

    Re: High Tech Beehives

    My opinion about acoustic information is that maybe it is to late when bees are starting to buzz differently. For example; statistically the most dangerous thing for my bees is starvation; so...
  13. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    Be prepared for selective treatment in fall. Do at least two (OAV) unselective treatments in winter (when colonies are brood less).
    Expect (aim for) 10 to 20 % of losses.

    Re: Heat treatment for varroa
