    Re: Cat Urine

    For sure! Nasty! Cat poop and urine probably would kill mites I'd bet though
  2. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    I agree with Oldtimer. We also have found that it takes a OAV treatment every 3-4 days for 3 weeks to make the mite populations drop down where they need to be. Very laborious on hundreds of colonies...
  3. Cheap pro sweet in Clarkson KY.

    Hi all, just got 3.5 tons of pro sweet from Kelleys/mannlake in Clarkson KY. The price is 38 cents a 100lb. Cheaper if you buy alot more. The folks at Kelleys like Jennifer, Paul, and Kathryn are...
  4. Re: Why did my bees die - summer edition

    Viruses or efb we never throw away the combs. Just let them air out for a while. AFB would be a different story but thankfully none of that has ever been here. I just sent in some comb and bee...
  5. Re: Why did my bees die - summer edition

    I truthfully cannot be certain with the pictures. When I see viruses I typically see multiple problems, uncapped purple-eyed stage brood, bald brood, EFB melted down larvae, chalkbrood, and sometimes...
  6. Re: Why did my bees die - summer edition

    Alot of nucs are made off of Almond bees so mite levels and viruses could easily be out of control. Especially if the keeper was feeding patties thru winter. Just in my season my strong hives can...
  7. Re: Why did my bees die - summer edition

    Right and if the colony is weak and the viruses have taken hold even if you killed the mites the colony would be extremely hard to fix. We don't even bother fixing them if we happen to see one. We do...

    Re: Want More Honey

    Just because they are uncapped does not mean they are not ready. You would be surprised how often I test uncapped frames with a refractometer and they are plenty dried out. To get a bigger honeycrop...
  15. Re: How much honey to give your hive land sponsors

    I give mine 2 gallon in bottles. Good bee yards and nice folks to work with are important. Keep their place clean. I tell them if they run out to let me know and I will get them more. We stick 50...

    Re: Simple Harmony Farms uncapper

    It works well on nice combs but so does everything else. Very quick. My wife doesn't like lack of wax gained from extracting. On soft thin celled combs used exclusively for honey it does a good job....
  17. Re: Odd Comb on Plastic Foundation

    Keys to good straight combs are, A well mated queen, a good flow or feed program, fresh wax foundation or nicely coated plastic foundations. After years of wiring wax foundation I grew to hate it...

  19. Maybe 2nd generation beekeeper?

    I am not a technologic person but I am thankful to have captured a moment of my 3 year old son getting into his first beehive. If he works bees as good as he eats honey we should be able to expand...

    Re: Team Beekeeping

    The problem is is many teachers are too inexperianced. I have talked to WAY to many club presidents, college PHDs, and internet guru beekeepers who are incredibly incompetent but still have many...
  21. Re: Commiserate: Worst Advice You've Ever Followed, & Subsequent Disastrous Results

    Shoot the list would take an hour to make. If there was "THE" one thing I could go back and change is when I first read about treatment free beekeeping. I wish lighting would have struck and...
  22. Re: Bringing in Apis cerana to the US (Solve varroa problem)

    The treatment free beekeepers have already found the apis solution. Now if they could just share their stock and make it work for everyone.

    Sticky: Re: PMS or EFB?

    Do the frames have decent coverage? Poor nurse bee to brood ratio will give you efb looking larvae. Types of viruses also look like efb. It also stand to reason that poor nutritional feeding coupled...

    Re: Pro nuc

    Until those boxes can take a good drop I am sticking with jesters. I use those boxes all the time and I beat the heck out of those things. Jesters aren't perfect but I can Chuck 200 them out of a...
