    Re: Is Mann Lake operational right now?

    I asked Mann Lake to cancel the backordered triangle escapes that were on my order with both a phone call and email. I just got a notification that UPS is delivering them tomorrow. I'm tempted to...

    Re: Is Mann Lake operational right now?

    I placed an order about ten days ago. I received half the order yesterday with half back ordered. It would be nice if they had their website updated to show if an item is in stock or not. I...

    Re: Shipping one queen.

    Hi Kamon - I've received small orders in small USPS boxes, the kind that is free at the Post Office. The wooden queen cages were glued directly to cardboard in the box. The boxes had a few...

    Re: Is Mann Lake operational right now?

    I've been frustrated before too. Beekeeping vendors generally deliver slower than Amazon Prime especially during this pandemic. Mann Lake is a really good company. Dadant is too. I know it is...

    Maybe it's just me but you don't hear as much about Russian bees as you used to.

    Poplar in full bloom. From my perspective, it's been a bad year so far, way too rainy and cool. Curious what others think.

    Mine is always "Swarm moved from my best hive into tree 100 ft up." Glad to hear you had better luck than I typically do. :)
  11. Re: Simple Harmony Farms Uncapper product Review

    I have one. I used it for the first time last year. It did an amazing job and saved us a LOT of time. Very easy to use. The only complaint is I wish the roller was a half inch wider. It...

    Re: How to keep honeybees alive and thriving.

    I'll second everyone's comments. You do a great job educating a range of beekeepers from novice to advanced. And my wife loves watching those cats walking around near the bees. :) I have a...
  14. Re: Quality Equipment- Brushy Mountain replacement?

    I also liked the quality of the woodenware from Brushy Mountain. I started looking for a new supplier last year when they went out of business.

    For frames, I think Mann Lake has the best.

    Re: RIP little bees...

    I agree with Eric on this. I don't have quantitative evidence on this but in my experience it has been more and more difficult to control mites exclusively with OAV. I spent hours and hours wearing...

    Re: RIP little bees...

    Sorry to hear that Paul. Did you have a strategy for proactively dealing with mites in the hives? If not that may be what the problem was.

    Re: OAV or Apivar?

    So it sounds like you prefer Apiguard over Formic Pro? I know you use others but just curious about your preference between the two of those.

    I know you hear this a lot but great job with your...

    Re: Tung Oil Inside The Hive?

    Bees "varnish" the inside as they see fit. I see no benefits in tung oil on the interior - just risk without reward.

  24. Re: Bee with torso up stinger out like a scorpion?

    I've seen it a lot and more commonly in cooler weather. I think they do it to "light up" anything that brushes up against them.

    Re: A question for Thyme oil users.

    Look up the Apiguard and ApiLife Var products. I believe Apiguard is the more popular of the two and is supposed to work very well. I'm going to give it a try next year. I really like OAV but it's...
