    Re: What do i call my queens?

    I would say that your "Queens are openly-bred daughters of a Saskatraz Queen." At least for that first year. Can't get anymore truthful than that.

    Re: Provap vs Sublimox vs Oxalika Pro

    And I think this is part of the reason why the metric system failed -- particularly in the South. It became lumped in as almost a cultural norm (like politics, language, etc.) instead of a superior...

    Re: Provap vs Sublimox vs Oxalika Pro

    It was a serious tragedy. The empirical system is such an inferior, convoluted mess. I was promised in grade school that we would be converting to the metric system by the time I was an adult. I'm...

  5. Re: BROODSAFE Phages Against Paenibacillus Larvae

    Would like to know more. Just not a lot out there that I can find.

    Re: Is capped sugar syrup useful to a hive?

    In certain circumstances, it could be the difference between life and death for a hive. Sure, honey is probably better. But sugar is better than starvation.

    Re: one-two punch using Apivar and OA dribble?

    As long as nucs are going for $150 - $200 each, $3.50/strip is a relative bargain. Though admittedly expensive.

    I think there is a nuance to this idea of Amitraz/Apivar resistance that is often...
  8. Re: Getting ready to pull supers, but vacation!

    You can, but cold honey frames are very hard to extract. Of course you could warm them up before extracting. You won’t be able to put them back onto your hives with the Apivar to warm them though...

    Re: How to not care for bees:

    Before I criticize, I am so thankful that I did not post any videos of myself when I first started beekeeping.

    He would learn a great deal from watching an experienced beekeeper use a hive tool....

    Re: Thymol effects on queen rearing?

    MiKayla:

    I wanted to add that, if you have split and are expecting the split colony to raise its own queen, you will have no capped brood in your hive after 21 days after the day of the split. ...

    Re: Thymol effects on queen rearing?

    MiKayla:

    I would be very reluctant to treat a new split that was attempting to raise its own queen with Thymol. Especially if I was getting temps into the 80s. I have used Thymol (Apiguard) and...

    Re: Balled after Painted

    If that is the case, it was the paint. I haven't had a queen in that tube since May. I don't think it was pheromone from another queen. I have painted at least 30 queens so far this year with the...
  13. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    The treatment I find most effective, by far, is Apivar. I also use OAV at different times of the year. I have used Apiguard and MAQS in the past.

    But from my experience, Apivar is by far the...

    This happened AGAIN to me yesterday -- two years after I started this thread. Couldn't have had her out of the hive for more than 5 minutes. Stuck a dot of green Testors paint on her thorax,...

    Re: Brood In Honey Super!

    Could be a lot of things:

    1. Your queen slipped by you on your last inspection and is now trapped in your honey super. It happens. Has happened to me.

    2. You don't have a queen in your...

    Re: OAV and honey supers

    Yes. Or you could place a barrier (board, political sign, etc.) between the brood chamber and your supers and then OAV. The bees trapped in the super during treatment will not be directly exposed...
