    Re: New to this forum

    I would really recommend an alcohol wash. You will really see how well your treatments work. Only a sacrifice of 300 +/- bees. Good luck with your Bees!!!

    Hi Alex. I used ppg 2 part epoxy tinted to the color I wanted. The lava works better than sand in a wet or slippery environment. On a clean floor, and muratic acid scrub, shouldn't need a bonding...

    I purchased anchor shocking 1/2 pint jars, and pint jars from them at wall Mart for about 8.00 a dozen. Nicer looking jars, and smooth sides, and semi square jars.

    Re: Bone dry nuc

    I'd feed em well. If you have frames empty, and you feed this booming little hive. They may make it if you keep varroa in check asap. Also pollen sub wouldn't hurt. Worth a try to save them
