    Charlie...Love is in the air.

    I just love to keep it going.

  2. Re: Can Our Friendship Survive This Competiton?

    Why not catch one, mark her, then demand the "steak dinner". Charlie will never know, and I will never tell.

  5. Re: Screws instead of nails for box assembly?

    Isn't that what enjambres is asking for here on this forum????? Beekeepers opinions????? Beekeepers experience?????

    You are correct, that is just my opinion. Take it for what it is worth. Feel...
  6. Re: Screws instead of nails for box assembly?

    With a good glue, screws are a gross overkill, not to mention the added cost, and time .

    Unless there is another good reason to use them (and enjambres apparently has one here), staples or...

    Re: 12 frame boxes?

    If you want to run a 12 frame or a 27 frame box, all you need to do is move the brood nest to one of the two sides when you make your last inspection in the Fall. Move the stored honey to the other...

    Re: How do queenless warms happen?

    It is also possible that the swarm queen was killed, either by nature, or by the beekeeper in the swarm gathering process.

    Re: Yellow jackets in traps

    My experience is, yellow jackets will take up residence in any suitable box, and a deep hive body is just right. They will occupy them during the Summer months, then abandon them to go into Winter...
  12. Re: Tapping "tin" to encourage a flying swarm to land

    Oddly enough, you will get about as many people to say that it works, as will say it doesn't.

    I have tried it several times, and every time except one, it has worked for me. But, nothing...

    Re: Migratory Cover...

    Eddie Honey.... I suspect you are right. A gap between frames.

    I have always made mine with 3/4 rabbets, but, if less than that, there will almost always be some space between the frames that...

    Re: Migratory Cover...

    rwurster. I agree with you. I always ran migratory tops. Inner covers are redundant, and if it has a hole in it, is a great place for bees to just loaf or chase small hive beetles. For Winter...

    Re: Migratory Cover...

    No, make all your boxes with the 3/4 rabbet.

    If you will notice, most commercial deep and shallow frames length, (end bars) will extend slightly below the bottom of the box. The portion that...

    Re: Migratory Cover...

    No, would require too much inventory. And would encourage people not to use an inner cover. They would not sell as many inner covers. LOL...

    Most commercial supply houses cater to the hobby bee...

    Re: 3d Year using Versatech Super

    For those not familiar with Versatech, here are some additional photos. It has a grain finish on one side and a smooth finish on the other. The ones I made, I used the grain side out.

    Re: Migratory Cover...

    Another use is to accommodate a mason jar, through the migratory cover, feeder. Great method for feeding. You do not have to open hive, does not attract other insects, (wasps, yellow jackets,...

    Re: 3d Year using Versatech Super

    I don't know the answer to that question. Perhaps someone on here can chime in with an answer.

    I do know bees establish hives in all types of structures, Walnut trees, cedar trees, walls with...

    Re: 3d Year using Versatech Super

    Fivej.. Only made the supers 3 years ago, and they are only exposed to weather for 2 or 3 months each year.

    Oddfrank posted last year that his was holding up good also. Don't know about the...

    3d Year using Versatech Super

    Attached photos are of the Versatech super that I made in 2015, and have now used for 3 honey seasons. I also made one for Oddfrank, and sent it to him. Granted the supers are only on the hives for...
  23. Re: Rather femnine-looking trapout on tree

    Thanks odfrank, but, you have forgotten far more about beekeeping, than I will ever know. I don't need credit for anyone using what little knowledge I have contributed to beekeeping, but thanks...

    Re: My first swarm

    My guess would be 2 1/2 to 4 pounds. Once they orient on the frames, a frame fully covered with bees and working is just less than one pound. A 9 frame deep super, covered with bees and some honey...
