  1. Re: Do you need to rewax plastic foundation if you pressure wash the frames?

    Re: Ceracell hive top feeders

    I've only had that problem with the nuc feeder. The feeder trays tended to slide too much and would open up a channel for bees to get through. I think its made that way so that you can adapt it to...

    Re: Ceracell hive top feeders

    I've had ladder comb in the central chimney, but that's the only place I've had it. They built it to climb into the feeder.

    Re: Need New Roofing Plan

    I made the hive roof for my Warre out of a piece of PVC soffit trim.

    Since I didn't use it all up on the Warre, I also made a flat telescoping cover for one of my Langstroths.

    I...

    Re: How to inspect with less protective gear

    Jacket and veil, yes, but do you still wear shorts and flip flops? If so then we might have seen you on Youtube. :lpf:

    Re: How to inspect with less protective gear

    I always wear some kind of PPE when I am working in the apiary. Sometimes it is as minimal as just a pair of safety glasses, I do not do well with stings near my eyes but other stings are not so...
  15. Re: Outside Feeding using Porous Air Bubbling Hoses

    I have a cat. It isn't a stray. I got it from a lady with a box of kittens out front of Walmart. I see it once or twice a week. It meows at the door until I let it in. It eats, sleeps for a...
  16. Re: Are there rules for placing caught swarms?

    If I catch a swarm from own apiary then I leave the bait hive or the hive I dropped them into right where it was until night fall and they've settled in. Then I move it into my apiary. Its a swarm,...
  17. Re: Transparent PVC boards instead of Wood for Bee Hive

    OK, then listen to the advice you've been given and ask more questions instead of arguing with the advice.

    I started using transparent perspex as an inner cover last year on one hive. There is...
  18. Re: Outside Feeding using Porous Air Bubbling Hoses

    Wow, what a terrible idea in that video. Its a bad idea made even worse by placing the hose right in front of the hives. He may as well put up a flshing billboard that says "I've got lots of...

    Re: Weak Hive Coming out of Winter

    If your daytimes are staying mostly above 60 then switch the locations of the hives in the middle of the afternoon. Returning bees will boost the weaker colony. That is my go to method for...
  20. Re: Stapler for hardware cloth- not frames or boxes, etc

    I use the same stapler I use for my boxes. I switch to 1/2" staples and adjust the depth stop. I haven't had any trouble with 1/2" staples and Advantech.

    Re: Few wax worms in comb, can I eat honey?

    You can eat the honey. You could have eaten the wax worms if you wanted. Whatever is wrong with eating them is all in your head.

    I would not eat the worms. I would not eat wormed honey. I...
  24. Re: Let's just be honest: This spring is historically early.

    I have drones. I have never had drones this early in the year. Last year it was the the third week of May before I saw drones. I think it is time to get the swarm traps out.

    Good grief. Prime it and then put on whatever exterior grade mistint the Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore paint store had. It will last 15 years if you do that.
