    Sticky: Re: ATTN: New beekeepers with screened bottom boards

    I agree with above. My SBB is sandwiched with solid board with the gap approx 3/4in between. When necessary, this gap can be closed. Sticky board (political posters) can be slide in to count mites...

    Re: Langstroth frames for a horizontal hive

    I totally agree that some sort of the guide is necessary for foundationless. I am using top bars with different "guides" (grove, wedge etc) and some normal foundationless Lang frames. At the...

    Re: Langstroth frames for a horizontal hive

    I have horizontal beehive with Langstroth-size full frames, foundationless. Full-size "frames" (actually "stick", top bar) are OK, but you shall be careful. When building horizontal beehive, keep in...
  5. Re: Southern California Beeks: What's up with your bees this "winter?"

    Hi Waterbug
    I am in Santa Monica. We had some slow moments last year. This year is good for my bees. They are on natural resources, TF, no syrup, no frames. Regardless weather and time of the year,...
  6. End of the 2016 very short report

    Hello everybody
    My bees are doing well. This proves that my system is working (for me): bees are doing well without any treatment, without drop of syrup. I stopped counting mites a few years ago, it...

    Re: Foundationless honey harvest

    If motivated, bees can create the full comb overnight! I never was able to understand this translation of honey into wax (how much honey one lost if bees made a comb) - it is my understanding that...

    Re: Do bees have compassion?

    Bees are ancient creatures. They developed their "methods" during 100 millions years of existence. They had time to optimize their systems to the perfection. Numerous generations of evolution helped...
  10. Re: Help! Not a bee keeper but my porch is swarmed.

    One simple thing to know: when swarmed, bees are totally harmless! Big swarm look quite impressive, but bees are not aggressive at all. They are busy with their important business. You can stand in...

    Re: Do bees have compassion?

    Oooo, for sure, they do recognize smell! When I just started and was very enthusiastic about inspections, after each inspection, 3 (sic!) bee were delegated to harass me at the backdoor. They patrol...

    Re: Do bees have compassion?

    I observed (with sadness) as one bee tried to help another bee, who was smashed between two boxes during inspection (my fault). She tried for 20 min at least. I saw such behavior a few times. It...

    Re: 3D printing comb article

    3D printing is fancy word these days. The whole article is full of miscommunication. In principle, yes, it is possible to 3D print honey comb, but it it is very slow process. On commercially...
  14. Re: The big question of modern beekeeping: (all opinions welcome)

    True. But it is very slow process especially in multi-cell organisms like mites. Also, there is just biochemical limitation - most eucariothic (spell?) proteins will denature at +60oC. Bacteria -...

    Maeve
    Sorry for your problem and separation with bees. We have beehives in close proximity to the house (10'). Over last 4 years, my wife (not beekeeper) got stung 4 times. One time it was...
  16. Re: The big question of modern beekeeping: (all opinions welcome)

    Yes, I agree that chemical treatment is more economical, but it has its own disadvantages, for instance, tolerance to the chemical developed with time (not yet for OA). Physical "treatment" (heat in...

  18. Re: The big question of modern beekeeping: (all opinions welcome)

  19. Re: The big question of modern beekeeping: (all opinions welcome)

    I agree with Jim Lyon, but I do not trust their results. "Results" depend on many factors and sometime do not accurate. When element is detected - it is fine. If nothing detected, it rises the...
