    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    But not necessarily immediately - in the case of evaporation of water for example, there is cooling (heat loss) which accompanies the change of state - so suggest you look at the atmosphere above...

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    I am seating here at my computer and my body is loosing heat and, thus, I am trying to heat the Universe.
    So you are trying to heat the universe? That shows intent. I just came in from 3 hours...

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    I have no doubt that heating the hive walls is never their intent. Actually I think the matter of intent is irrelevant. Also no question that the amount of heat transferred to the hive body is...
  4. Re: Welch's frozen concentrate grape juice discontinued

    We used to make a crude wine with some brand of bottled juice and then suddenly it quit working. I think they started putting a fermentation inhibitor in it. That was some 50 years ago so cant...

    Re: modified taranov split

    I dont think there is anything functionally wrong with your described split. Whether or not it is truly a Taranov is mere nit picking. It would be less disruptive to a crowded apiary than open...

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    I think there may be another issue of importance here and that is the hypothesis that a hive so well insulated on top and all upper surfaces will not have any condensation areas to provide water for...
  8. Re: Mating Queens in Two Queen Hive under Shared Super

    I have used the cloake board to set the scene for cell starting and finishing and having honey supers on top would be a nuisance at the least, as you may be in and out of the brood hives quite a few...

    Re: TIN FOIL HAT or REALITY?

    We really should establish that there is a difference between education and conditioning. Quality education should stress creative thinking, logic, and recognizing the concept of confirmation bias...

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    I agree with insulation being first concern. If your insulation is somewhat permeable to an air flow, I think it is a plus in regard to getting moisture out. That removes most of the sole dependance ...
  11. Re: Mating Queens in Two Queen Hive under Shared Super

    Quite a few articles about it mention the need to have similar age, condition, queen in each side to keep from having the bees choose one or the other of the queens. Quite recently an article...

    Re: TIN FOIL HAT or REALITY?

    What we are talking about------ misinformation serving greed and selfishness is good old human nature on display. We are just getting better at it. The most glaring examples are probably not as bad...

    Re: TIN FOIL HAT or REALITY?

    My apologies to Robert for snipping up his post.

    I think those are key elements to avoid being pulled into contributing to someone elses agenda. The influence is often very subtle. There is also a...

    TIN FOIL HAT or REALITY?

    Edward Bernays.

    I thought about this fellow in relation to changing the mind set about breeding a more resistant bee but the ideology applies to anything that would take a major shift in our...
  16. Re: Penn State "COMB" project posts Dec 2019 update

    When the main reason for existing of near 90% of the colonies in the US is mass pollination; perhaps the present bee characteristics and supply system is filling the need. That system has a huge...

    Re: Dehumidifying honey

    I believe the pump is to dispose of the water. My 20 year old one has only a bucket that needs dumping manually. I think they all will have fans to move the air thru the units. The chemical dessicant...

    Re: Low cost bee box construction

    If a person is not prepared to make tight fitting finger joints then they would be better off with rabbeted joins. Common constsruction glues dont have much strength as gap fillers!

    Re: Power For A Vaporizer

    If I am reading it correctly only a 26 amp hour battery. 16 hours to recharge. Do they state 800 amp boost? That seems a bit optimistic...... unless maybe on a dead short?
