    Re: Very Thick Honey

    Wow, sounds like some of Kamon's wife Laurel's honey caramels that I made last year https://www.beesource.com/forums/showthread.php?359071-Melt-in-your-mouth-Honey-caramel! . Think I was about 5 shy...

    Re: The Covid 19 Thread

    Salty, don't hold your breath! Australia is looking more and more inviting to me and it doesn't get all that cold down under, or so I am told by a native Aussie.

    Re: The Covid 19 Thread

    Better watch it quick. FB is doing the same thing. My wife has tried to share some posts posted by other health care professionals that question the numbers and certain protocols, only to find them...

    Re: The Covid 19 Thread

    I concede that it could be for both of their benefits. But when my wife goes into a room to care for a patient that is full contact precaution, the suit, gloves, and mask are to protect her alone.

    Re: The Covid 19 Thread

    Funny how the narrative has changed. Perhaps doctors should start masking the patients and then they can operate without their glasses fogging up? A mask is PPE. It is designed and intended to...

    Re: Very Thick Honey

    Hi KellyW, I was going to respond earlier but just got dinner on the table. The use of subjective terms like "thick" can mean different things to different people. Had you said something like "my...

    Re: The Covid 19 Thread

    I stand with Kamon on this. I am out in the country and masks are worn by maybe 50% of the people. I wear a mask in stores that have their own little version of the Gestapo minding the door, but...

    Re: Angled Comb on Bars

    LJ is spot on with this advice. I do not have TBHs, but do use foundationless frames. It is important to check new bars as they are being drawn out for straightness before the bees get too far along....

    Re: Sugar Purchase

    I just googled the Walmart in Lake Zurich. They have the Great Value brand pure cane at the same price as my local store for the 10# bags. The 25# bags are $8.88 each.

    Re: New here - made really stupid mistake

    Move the box with the frames under the box with the free comb. Or, do a cutout and get the comb rubber banded into some empty frames. The longer you wait, the worse it will become.

    Re: Sugar Purchase

    I buy pure cane sugar from Walmart at a cost of $0.376 per pound in 10# bags. It recently increased from $0.320 per pound. I usually get 15 to 20 bags at a time.
  12. Re: Do you think there's life outside Earth in the Universe.

    Well jonsl, my belief is that intelligent life DOES exist outside of our little planet Earth. To think that out of the entire universe, our planet was the only one to develop supposedly intelligent...

    Re: Very Thick Honey

    I suspect the honey is about the right consistency. If you do not want to do crush and strain, maybe an inexpensive 2 frame bucket extractor would be a good choice. Honey does vary in moisture...

    Re: Oxalic Acid Vaporizer-Recommendations???

    If you plan on increasing your hive counts, you can't beat a band heater vaporizor like the ProVap or any of the similar units. I own a ProVap and have used an Easyvap recently. They are both quick...

    Re: If it looks square, then it is square

    So absinthe, what did the final outside dimensions end up being? I would be less worried about the ends standing proud as I would be that the interior of the box won't accept the frames.

    Easiest thing at this point is to insert the appropriate number of Apivar strips according to package labeling. They come in a 10-pack, so that is what I would buy. You will need approximately two...

    Did your smoker dry rot from lack of use? I would say duct tape tape until you decide to shell out a few dollars for a replacement bellows. They are not expensive. Actually Don, I am is the same...

    Re: New Bee with odd beehavior

    I think you need to treat for mites immediately. The behavior you are observing sounds like parasitic mite syndrome or PMS, specifically Bee Paralysis Virus. The grooming on the other hand is normal.

    Trin, I'll sit down and have that beer with you. We may however, need to find something else to disagree about. Alien influences on pre-historic civilizations perhaps?
