    Re: Bumble Bees in raised bed

    Done. Upside down swarm trap resting on some scraps of landscape timber to keep it off the ground. Would not have been able to do this last year since I had no bee suit then. Needed it! Six or eight...

    Bumble Bees in raised bed

    Wife found them yesterday cleaning out a raised bed. They are not at all happy their little home has been disturbed. Fortunately it was me that got stung not her...

    Sticky: Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?

    That is reassuring. Both you and AR1 correct about no one number telling all. Just that a sticky board count is by far the easiest to do frequently. Alcohol wash requires suiting up, disturbing all...

    Sticky: Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?

    Just for clarification this is a full sized sticky board underneath an untreated hive? If so I have high hopes of remaining TF. Worst of two hives is typically 1 to 3 mites in 24 hours. Occasional...

    Re: Cardinal Sin

    You could ask him to do a mite count:)

    Guessing he has 30 feeders to deter 'bullies'? Not currently feeding hummers, but when we did got up to four feeders in a futile effort to insure all had a...

    Re: How to deal with efb/ afb

    Randy Oliver posted on Bee-L recently that he has found Dawn Ultra detergent works. Might want to look up the full directions, more than I feel comfortable re-posting with out permission.

    Linux user for almost 18 years now. Tried a few different distros and quickly setled on Mandrake, (ancient fork of Red Hat) which merged with Conectiva and changed its name to Mandriva, died (except...

    Re: Mann Lake Alert

    Placed a small order on 4-20 and received four of five items fairly quickly. Fifth item shipped from a Kellybee location. Very confused to receive a ship notice from a company I had not ordered from....

    Re: Strange spherical cells on new hive

    Did this for my very first inspection at the two week mark. Highly recommend it! Regret not doing it since.

    Hard to take pictures wearing gloves so plan to build a rig that will hold my smart...

    Re: Double nuc entrances

    Assuming "mate it" includes any mating (simple splits) and not just full fledged queen rearing?

    Would an upper entrance beside a normal lower entrance on the same end be enough to avoid confusing...

    Re: Double nuc entrances

    Thanks all! Two on the front is even easier, only have to make / modify an entrance reducer.

    Primary goal here is to get a split out of plastic and into wood before it gets any hotter. Have...

    Double nuc entrances

    Trying to avoid entrances too close together, common solution I have seen is one front one rear. Might be good for the bees but it is rather inconvenient for me. Any reason not to have one in the...
  13. Re: Bees crawling inside of hive top feeder

    Thanks! Guessing the "CN" stands for Christian Nicot. Other differences are the hight or depth, 82 MM according to their website verses 65 MM for the knock off. You estimate the gap at 1 MM, I...
  14. Re: Bees crawling inside of hive top feeder

    Must be two different versions of these, none of mine snap. Will try the weight idea Spur9 suggested.

    Re: The Perfect Pocket Hive ToolTM

    SL Tx have been meaning to update. Received my authentic original from R Weaver a few weeks back. Very impressed! Thicker metal than "D"s version .108 thousandths verses .098. Ground finish all over...
  16. Re: mixing different foundation cell sizes

    Dadent F353103SC add a "5" at the end for 5.1 MM cell. Which is harder to find than small cell. How do you plan to extract?

    Good luck! Sounds like your following a path similar to mine. Warning,...

    Re: AI Root extractor

    Used 'solder' in the generic, could easily be braze. Very neat and professionally done in either case. If it does turn out to contain lead I'm hoping it can be covered. Does Camcote stick to...

    AI Root extractor

    New beek here and an extractor was way far down on my wish list. However, found out an old friend from the 80s had got into and back out of beekeeping. Last weekend bought a pickup load of beekeeping...
  21. Re: 2, 3, 5, or 35 What are the least practical to get out of buying bees every year?

    Bought mine more as insurance or a back up plan as I'm delusional enough to try starting out TF.:eek: Investment may be a better term as all production has ceased due to supply chain issues. Wish I...

    Re: Is Mann Lake operational right now?

    Ah, this may explain why I got a ship notice from Kelly Bee yesterday. Never ordered from them but do have a back ordered item at Mann Lake.

    Live Oak: Great tip about the plastic QE! Possibly unnecessary on a single
    deep from what I have read. Just the ticket for a double deep to catch the ones that survive.

    fence had forgotten just why there was a wild rose there in the first place.
