    Re: Math problem

    If the container is 21" around (this would be the circumference), the volume of the cylinder (object you described) would be approximately 3.8 gallons (.15 gallons per inch of height). If the contain...
  2. Re: Texas Lagging Behind Once Again! H.B 1293

    What do you mean by pulled? I'm under the impression that the bill was referred to the Agriculture Committee but hasn't been heard yet. I hope that you are correct. Where are you getting that...
  3. Re: Texas Lagging Behind Once Again! H.B 1293

    I have heard this same comment from other beekeepers, and non-beekeepers, that I've talked to about the bill, and it's a big concern that so much power is being granted to the inspector and that it...
  4. Re: Texas Lagging Behind Once Again! H.B 1293

    Honestly, I really am interested in hearing an explanation from you as to why you say that. Please explain why the changes were proposed and why the way the Code currently reads is not enough. And...
  5. Re: Texas Lagging Behind Once Again! H.B 1293

    Exactly. See how bizarre sounding the proposal is? The more I think about this, the more I think it's somehow set up to benefit a select group of beekeepers who want to "report" other beekeepers to...
  6. Re: Texas Lagging Behind Once Again! H.B 1293

    There's a lot of stuff wrong with this bill. A lot of language is changed to the Agricultural Code Chapter 131 and some added that gives the apiary inspector a lot more broad authority with a lot of...
  7. Re: It's too complicated nowadays. What were the good ole' days like?

    Where does a person go about getting some hands on training for II? Also, are you using the VSH breeder queens from Harbo for all your breeder queens?

    Re: Charging for honey extraction

    I think this is an excellent idea. There are bunches of beekeepers out there who produce more honey than they know what to do with.

    I have a friend who I helped get a used Dakota Gunness uncapper...

    Re: Using excel to estimate yearly income

    Arpolis, rather than run scenarios based on variables, I'd recommend you build some actual proforma financial statements to develop a plan for your business.

    Create a year's worth of monthly...
  12. Sticky: Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    That was an interesting read. Thanks for sharing the article.
  13. Sticky: Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    I think you brought up a good point. I wonder if there are any studies that show the average life of a wild colony, that life being it's total time in existence regardless of it's re-queening, and...
  14. Re: "Don't buy trucks, forklifts or equipment; buy more bees. and boxes."

    I use to work for an older guy, until he retired, who every time he came to the facility I managed for him told me he wanted, "consistent, steady growth", not big leaps. Sound advice. He also taught...

    Re: keeping races pure

    Brother Adam in Breeding the Honeybee makes the point that Nature breeds for survival of the honey bee in it's environment but NEVER breeds the "ideal" or "perfect" honey bee suited to the demands of...

    Re: keeping races pure

    According to this article, http://ag.arizona.edu/pubs/insects/ahb/inf15.html, it sounds like he was using a type of queen excluder to keep the drones and queen from leaving the hives. This guy was a...

    Re: keeping races pure

    Oh. I never really knew how that had happened. I read the wikipedia version though just now, so now I know what you are referring to.

    I guess this is a good reason why we don't normally allow...

    Who tried to control the genetics using a queen excluder?

    Re: Bee Trucks

    BernHard, your responses make me want to start putting my hives on pallets and using a forklift like you have.

    Your pallets are interesting too. Are all the hives snug up against each other, and...
  22. Re: Mating flight radius of drones and virgin queens

    JBJ, so how did you end up setting up your drone yards in relation to your mating yards? I've been wondering about this same question for a while but can't seem to find an answer.

    Re: VSH Honey Bees

    Beepro, but the Glenn Apiaries website says that the VSH genes are additive. This means that the more of them there are present, the more strongly the trait will be expressed. And the cost associated...

    Re: keeping races pure

    I've read Breeding the Honeybee, by Brother Adam. It's a very good book on breeding honey bees and you can buy it on Abebooks.com for $15.

    Contemporary Queen Rearing, by Harry Laidlaw Jr is also a...
