    Re: Melting brood comb wax

    The answer depends entirely on what caused the brood to die in the first place

    Re: Finding suitable wood from salvage yards

    I have to disagree here. In 1924, 17 workers at DuPont and Standard oil refineries died as a direct result of lead exposure.

    Re: Finding suitable wood from salvage yards

    Fun fact*, way back in 1904, Sherwin-Williams noted in their company newsletter that lead-based paint was potentially dangerous.



    *Maybe not so fun in this case

    Re: Drift Watch and Bees

    I added my hives to their map recently. It will be interesting to see if I actually get notified of any spraying.

    Last summer, the neighboring farmer had his crops dusted. It was cool watching...

    Re: Filling top brood box with honey?

    I wish I could help, rutz. I have a hive that is starting to do the same thing. In my case, the super is foundationless so that may be the problem. What's the foundation situation with your supers?

    You're forgetting that the dowsers agreed to that method of testing beforehand and were genuinely surprised that they failed. There's a video of one of the tests on Youtube:...

    Daniel,
    You may find this article interesting: http://skepdic.com/dowsing.html especially the section titled "Does dowsing work?"
    Short version: dowsing has the same success rate as random chance,...

    Re: Dandelion dud season?

    Hmm, well if the dues are that high I think I'll try to join the American Association of Dandelion Growers of America instead. :thumbsup::D

    Re: Dandelion dud season?

    Despite a bumper crop of dandelions here, I have seen very few bees on them so far. They mostly are bringing in a light yellow/greyish pollen.

    NewBee,
    How can I join the Dandelion Growers...

    Re: Bees and Ley Lines/Electromagnetic Lines

    Oh I have plenty to say to those beekeepers. Things like:
    "Does positioning hives relative to ley lines cause consistent, predictable outcomes?"
    "What was your method for testing these outcomes?"...

    Re: Found wild colony high up in a tree

    Just so you're aware, the concept of ley lines is pseudoscience. It was made up by an amateur archaeologist in the 20's and revived in the 60's as new age nonsense.

    Re: Commercial vs Budget?

    Back in October I ordered 10 deeps and 10 supers from Mann Lake, all budget grade. About 1/4 of the pieces (not boxes, individual pieces) had knots, but none were loose. Two pieces had fingers that...

    This thread reminded me of my weirdest sting so far, which was to the right side of my neck. It didn't swell up at all, or itch, but a small patch of skin on my right cheek went numb and it took...

    Re: 8 frame dimensions

    Or you could make them 14" wide (Mann Lake size) or 13 3/4" wide. There is no standard width for 8 frame hives unfortunately.

    Re: Cardboard swarm traps/nuc boxes

    I think cardboard nucs are typically coated with paraffin wax, not beeswax. As I understand it, cheese wax is a type of paraffin wax so I would think it should work.
  20. Re: Over 'n Out Fireant killer harmful to my bees?

    The borax-grape jelly mix works. I put it in a container next to the colony with holes that bees couldn't fit through and the ants were gone within a week.
  21. Re: Horizontal Langstroth Version of TBH - Input needed

    Could you possibly run a taut wire across the hive instead of a rod? Depending on your legs or stand, bowing might not be an issue for you.

    With 6 inner covers, I can open one or two sections at...
  22. Re: Horizontal Langstroth Version of TBH - Input needed

    Welcome Peter,

    1) From the looks of your photo, you will need an inner cover that has bee space underneath. I would suggest using multiple smaller inner covers rather than one large one. My 42"...

    Re: windshield washer thinned latex spraying

    How is the adhesion? Does the dried paint look normal, or chalky?

    Yes, there are types of detergent that don't suds up. I read somewhere that...

    Interesting. I had heard of Penetrol (for oil-based paint) but I hadn't heard of Floetrol. I see it is about $7 a quart at Home Depot.

    Windshield washer fluid also contains detergents; it isn't just alcohol and water. Having said that, I know some types of acrylic paint can be thinned and sprayed with it. Same with isopropyl...
