    Re: Tips to Separating stuck hive boxes

    It was told to me by an old wise bee keeper to use piano wire. I don't have that handy but it got me to thinking some 20lb test fishing line (or heavier?) MIGHT work.

    Re: Uncapping methods

    Heat gun. All I ever use. If wax is old and tough hit with heat gun, then take an ordinary kitchen fork and take long scratch through length of frame. Works just fine. Only thing, my gun gets sticky.

    Re: Maxant motor issues

    Mine is the 9 frame model. It's working very well now. I will look up that number. Excellent idea.

    Success.... bolted it up and it's ok. Not perfect, but no arcing one side and a small blue arc that might be normal.

    Anyone reading this in the future taking this apart is not difficult. British...

    Maxant motor issues

    What would extraction time be without issues with my extractor. Every time I have to mess around with it. I'm convinced I have a lemon as nobody else seems to have the issues I do. Last night it was...

    My lab did the exact same thing... wipe her face, but on the carpet. Soon as I saw this I stopped her and grabbed the paper towels.

    Lab got sprayed by shunk last night

    What a night! I let her out for her nightly bathroom time and she starts barking like crazy. She comes back and I smell it . Oh no... A trip to the only open store at midnight for some hydrogen...
  19. Does this look like a hatched queen cell??

    This is pretty definitive to me but hoping I am wrong. It looks like a new queen chewed her way out, first image. The hive population looked healthy and strong still though so I am not real sure...

    Finally got it done. Soon as I approached they were on me. A cluster had apparently stayed outside last night and they are the ones who dive bombed me. I did feel fine since I had all the protection....

    Thanks. I guess I did not realize the pheromones were that strong and carried that far.
  23. Aggressive hive behavior- has anyone seen this?

    I had a not so good hive check today with, in my experience, what was a very very hot hive. I saw something today and really wonder what others think. Normal, not normal. Follows is the scenario.

    I really wanted to dig down to see if there was a queen. But I couldn't bring myself to stand there and get stung. They have been good this spring, though once during not so good weather they were...

    Re: Chased out of the apiary

    I split 2 hives roughly a month ago. I think this is a new one, though it may have been the original queen. Not sure at the moment. I suited up again and was able to square up the lid but the top box...
