    Re: Add salt to your bees water supply

    How big is your pond?

    I put a few tablespoons of salt and about 1 of honey into a 5 gallon bucket. Between these additions and keeping the water warm I have been able to keep bees out of my...

    Re: Building Jar Top Hive Feeder

    If the jar lid is more than about 1/16" from the screen the bees will probably not be able to get to the syrup. The bees don't have a really long tongue (I dont remember the name) so it needs to be...
  6. Re: Another hobbyist building question, improved box-box sealing with silicone bead?

    I suspect the silicone would start sticking and gluing the boxes together making them harder to get apart. You would also have to be careful not to rip out the sides when prying boxes apart. I have...

    The store bought ones that I have use a wooding bar with a slot in it. The metal excluder is placed into the slots in all 4 bars then they are glued together. I suspect this will hold up much...

    I have a friend that said he was going to fake coughing in stores to keep everyone else away from him. I am not sure if he actually did this.

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    I decided this method of keeping my bees at my water source is working (last fall and this spring) so I figured I would share.

    Re: Feeding question

    Pure white refined sugar is the best thing to feed them with. My understanding is that the unprocessed sugar has more solids which can cause more problems during the winter.

    Re: Front Range roller coaster - 2020

    I also wait until I see drones. I split a hive to early one year and ended up spending several months getting the hive straitened back out after ending up with a drone only laying queen.

    Re: the flow? aka hive weights

    Re: the flow? aka hive weights
