    Re: Are they nuts or hardy winter bees

    For sure, these bees are wasting lots of energy and resources over nothing.
    I would not call these "hardy winter bees".
    I'd call these - idiots.

    The hardy winter bees are very stingy and not...

    Sticky: Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?

    Me too - noticed how it is much easier to be TF in the queen rearing/bee producing business.

    Not so easy in the honey producing business.
    But - the size of the so called "full sized production...

    Sticky: Re: GregV's Alternative way to keep (have?) bees.

    It is all good.
    Thanks.

    Around winter holidays, should have the most worthwhile units still afloat.
    Then will be a good time to install selective dry sugar supplements where warranted.

    Sticky: Re: GregV's Alternative way to keep (have?) bees.

    Down to 14 units (just found one dead today - as expected - regardless of the splitting, these are a very mite-susceptible line - too bad, otherwise a good bee).
    At least they did not eat too much...

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    I would certainly not use water as an insulator:

    Which is very similar to honey at 0.5.
    :)

    To speak of good natural insulators,...

    OK, I knew this.
    Unsure who even argues.

    Back to my "heating the Universe" example.
    The energy intake by the Universe from me is > zero in theoretic sense.
    And yet it is ~zero - so...

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    You probably meant - honey is a good heat sink due to the high thermal mass.
    Thermal transfer resistance of honey is not that high - to be a good insulator.
    Thermal mass <> thermal transfer.
  9. Re: 6-framer - larger-scale, commercial grade, mobile operator

    Yes, over-engineered.
    The "Horn" hives are supposed to be stupid simple and dirt cheap.
    That is the main premise of them.

    Yeah, those "Horns" a recent invention of an Ukrainian commercial,...

    Re: Best bee strain for KY?

    In my area (which is So WI) there was a batch of Saska queens/packages sold a couple of years ago.
    A lot that material all ended up dead, per the local chatter.

    The issue is the amount of the money.

  13. Re: 6-framer - larger-scale, commercial grade, mobile operator

    LJ, you gonna like these.

    Though a 7-framer - already feels a bit heavy as for me.
    Maybe a bit over-engineered to my taste.
    Still cool.

    If you'll ask - what are those custom small frames?...

    All good points, MSL.

    But down my alley - I don't intentionally kill the bees - thanks to more modern equipment, no need for the killing.
    I prefer to split, not push the swarms out (just so to...
