    Re: Global Warming

    Governments and Media have us chasing a rabbit down the hole on this issue...In my view, we need to stop the population explosion. Half as many people on the earth would really impact humankind's...
  3. Re: Would you add room this late in the season?

    RichinBama gave you good advice. Bees do not build comb until they need it. Since you are in the sun belt and have mild temperatures now, and since your swarm is in its initial build up, and since...

    Re: Queen Flew Away Today (Nov 30)

    I'm in growing zone 7b, similar to your location aumfc I would guess, and have seen bees successfully requeen themselves in late November, (large hives overwinter a few drones) They may be...

    Re: Bone dry nuc

    Feed, or combine. Its up to you. If you feed, be careful with open feeding. You will feed bees living within three miles, but not necessarily your target NUC. For that reason you will do well to...

    Re: In a Bind

    I like the advice above. Stacking supers in my location without precautions would surely result in wax moth and small hive beetle damage, (meaning, loss of the honeycombs and honey from infestation...

    Unless the laws have changed, you don't need a guide when you are hunting with a Wyoming resident. :D

    Re: Looking for a Wyoming person about antelope

    I was born and raised in Wyoming, with two brothers outfitting for everything but antelope out of Thayne, Wyoming. Michael Bush is correct about expecting a 100-300 yard shot. A 7mm or 270 will do...
  14. Re: Let's talk about your best Bee Vacuum Designs

    I built a Bushkill Vac and have used it extensively. I had an unused shop vac that provided the vacuum and hoses. I'd recommend it to you. Plans were available online but cannot find them right...

    Re: God Bless and hello all

    You are good. Also be advised there are as many opinions about what you should do and when you should do it as there are beekeepers. Mainstream practices are best when just beginning beekeeping, so...
  16. Re: not new to bee stings, but I just had a real bad reaction

    You want to take advice from an Allergist, not just a regular physician.

    ADDED: You may find something interesting in Michael Palmer's video, here.

    Re: Oxalic acid vaporizer

    THIS Video answers your questions about temperatures and oxalic acid. 373 degrees F is the point that OA vaporizes into formic acid and CO2. HTH :)

    Re: I just killed both my queens, am I crazy?

    I vote with these posters on this. Here in Texas, it will soon be too hot for optimal queen production. Successful Queen matings can go to one or two in ten over 95 degrees. All beekeeping IS local....

    Re: Time before E Cell construction?

    Frank, I'm sure there is a range of variability between strains of bees, from hive to hive and from one time to the next. My own experience is to see the beginnings of queen cells 2-4 days after...

    Re: Varomor Re: OA Treatment -

    I had the same problem. No luck solving it. Most beekeepers have concluded this method has gone the way of fogging mineral oil, (meaning, it hasn't been scientifically validated).

    Re: Do these capped cells look normal

    Looks like capped honey is a real possibility in the center of that frame. If it is, it may be because there is not enough growing space in that hive. Makes me wonder how much 'room to grow' they...
