  4. Sticky: Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    I haven´t seen any studies, and it is maybe because nobody uses top entrances here in Scandinavia. The bottom ventilation and polystyrene hives is the norm, and even wooden boxes are without top...

    I suppose everybody has seen this:

    The 13x13x6 "shallow warre" is actually quite interesting set-up. There is probably no hive easier/cheaper to make.

    Re: Sam Comfort colonies

    How are the hives with Sam Comfort queens doing? Any data of mites?
  7. Sticky: Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    Did the both groups have similar structure concerning upper entrances?
  8. Sticky: Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    I´m pretty sure it was market demand.

    Ok. :thumbsup:
    Ruttner and Adam could not study dna or microsatellites. They looked and measured from outside.

    I think this is exactly how Ruttner (and Adam) saw it.
  11. Sticky: Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    I use queen excluder in the hive bottom. Towards the spring it is kind of automatic air conditioning, less air circulation because of dead bees on it.

    Hello Eduardo,

    I´d live to have that paper.
    It is so frustrating when lecturing beekeeping and people are stuck up with this race issue. Like this: "I have italian bees because they are yellow"...

  14. Sticky: Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    In heavy winter conditions it works well to have wide bottom entrance or whole bottom open. The most deadly set-up is one smallish bottom entrance.

    I have entrances both ways in winter (=entrance...

  16. Re: I had an Old school beekeeper check my hives

    What kind of winter you have there?

    To my eyes those hives in the video hive were weak, but our winters last 6 months.

  20. Re: German Black bees in the Southeastern US actually Apis mellifera iberiensis?

    I looked at my book of Ruttner. Iberica is not a crossing, but a very old species, belonging to the group of dark bees in Europe and northern Africa.

    Intermissa is the oldest (Africa)

    I wanted to stick with a system someone else uses, to maintain some retail value in my equipment.

    I have had three different set-ups in my 42 year beekeeping journey.
