    Re: Maxant Bottling Tank: 16 gallon v. 25 gallon

    That lift cart is awesome. Lower to fill, raise to bottle. Easy to roll around.
    I haven’t found the need to be very careful at all.
  2. Re: Slimy Comb from Hive Beetle Larvae maybe - salvageable?

    Bees won’t touch it. You can try washing the comb out with a hose.
  3. Re: It's 6-am - 9am or after 7pm beekeeping for me!

    I usually (when the temps are agreeable)…… like to start around 10am as a number of bees have left the hive. As to least angry …. the bees temperament (I've found) is determined by nectar flows or...

    It's just too hot! Above 95 every day....... As much as I enjoy beekeeping, there's not a bug I'm willing to have heatstroke over! If it doesn't get done in the am or pm...……..

    Re: I needed another hive stand fast…

    I just keep a couple of old boxes in the yard to place supers etc when working the hives.

    Varoa becoming resistant to OA is like a roach becoming resistant to being stomped on

  8. Re: OA vaporization is probably safe with honey supers - here's my calculations

    I recall reading somewhere??? that the Canadians (whose the US just copied) decided not to allow OAV treatment with honey supers on so that it could be stated that the honey was "untreated."

    Re: Provap vs Sublimox vs Oxalika Pro

    In addition to reading comments, see all in “action” in an apiary before deciding.

    Re: How long to wait for wash after OAV?

    OA continues to kill until carried out by the bees, which when they are flying is at most 3 days. So testing on day 4 after OAV should give you a decent count of the mites remaining.

    Re: BetterComb Experience, Anyone?

    I’ve heard the bees will readily put honey in them, but queens don’t like to lay in them. They will until comb is available, then that’s it.

    Excellent videos with good descriptions. Either top or bottom vaporizations work well on 2 box brood chambers (very few have 3 brood boxes). Bottom vaporizations may be easier because there is no...

    Re: Timing the use of Bt-A or Bt-K

    I apply mine as I’m pulling them out of the extractor. That way I’m only handling them once. They then go out to have the bees clean them. Then right into the shed.
