    Re: My Ant Proof Hive Stand Actually Works!

    Re: Acorn frames

    If you don't know what to do next, maybe you can set up broker (for MQTT data) and dashboards for weight, temperature and humidity.

    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...

  18. 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.
