  1. Re: is this chilled brood or something worse?

    In the first picture there is some food in the corner.


    Strange looking indeed.

    What came to my mind is some poisoning killed the pupa(larvae) and bees are removing them.

    Re: Upper vs Lower Ventilation (again).

    Facebook post from yesterday:
    This beekeeper snapped: she had to take a peak, she shoved 1 m snow just to find out that her hives, with no upper entrance, are sitting nicely tight in winter...

    Re: Wintering Bees In Alaska

    No cleansing flight yet in Finnish Lapland.


    Here is one beekeeper who snapped: she decided not to wait and shoveled her hive out of 1 m snow. And now (when temperature does not allow bees to...

    On Monday 4th of May there was for the first time this spring pollen from willow coming in. It had started blooming earlier but weather conditions were too cold and windy. This week the bees had...

    Re: Wintering Bees In Alaska

    Looking at those pictures it is obvious that there has not been enough ventilation. Water is not getting away, and is condensing in wrong places.



    Not many reports how have bees been wintering...
  8. Re: Another mite resistant bee breeding project

    Got me on that one.

    I haven't contacted John since we went there but the situation then was as you described.
  9. Sticky: Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages

    I have both front and back entrance fully open all winter (not spring).

    Colonies keep calm right from the winter start and consume minimum amount of stores.

    No mold.
  10. Re: Another mite resistant bee breeding project

    Thanks!
    This is what I like about BeeSource, preprints one month old and here it is!

    So,

    Kefuss treats, Gotland bees are treated,

    Believe it or not, I really want to learn his name.
  14. Re: Possible recommended OA vaporizer dosage changes

    Jack is his surname. OK.
  15. Re: Possible recommended OA vaporizer dosage changes

    OAD is far better than OAV. (My view! )
    I´m just concerned about the heath of beekeepers doing over 10 treatments couple days apart, not to speak about the lost time running on their yards all...
  16. Re: Possible recommended OA vaporizer dosage changes

    How many of those thousands of beekeepers need to say out loud their doubts of OAV efficiency and practicality, in order for me to be allowed to say any doubts on the efficiency and practicality of...
  17. Re: Possible recommended OA vaporizer dosage changes

    "I would say that the current legal limit of vaporizing 1 g is totally worthless. I don’t necessarily mean that OA vaporization is a bust, because you start see some control at 2 g and a slightly...

    Re: Mites Won't Stop! Using OAV.

    So,
    now we have Michael Palmer saying OAV does not work, Kamon Raynolds (great videos!) and Randy Oliver having doubts about OAV efficiency or practicality.

    Are there actually ANY larger...

    Re: OA Vapor & Dribble brood mortality

    One observation, no scientific value:

    Re: OA Vapor & Dribble brood mortality

    Not until now I managed to get the study paper open. I missed the right button...


    OK.
    They used very low concentrations, and applied OA on mites in a Petri dish.


    Now I understand.

    Re: OA Vapor & Dribble brood mortality

    Just to make sure:

    are we talking about the death of mites or hives?

    How can the mortality (of mites, I assume) be 2,8-7,2 fold, so huge difference?

    Re: OA Vapor & Dribble brood mortality

    But shouldn´t it read "non-mortality" or "surviving despite of OA" (of mites) instead of mortality?


    I mean if mortality of mites is 2,8-7,2 fold in the population which was previously exposed to...
