    Re: Queen

    I'm bumping this thread as Mace posted a reply (post #4) yesterday afternoon, but the system decided to "moderate" that post and it was not publicly readable.

    Now that the post has been released...

    Re: Question for posters/ morning rant

    OK, I just moved this thread to the Forum Feedback forum. In theory, it should have been put here earlier, but I left it where it was. :lookout:

    Re: Question for posters/ morning rant

    "Location" used to be a required field. Then when VerticalScope implemented a universal login system (across all their various forums), they decided that it was too much trouble to require...

    Re: Homemade Supplement for nectar?

    Unless you have enough hives to distribute 5 gallons of syrup immediately, I suggest just mixing up what you can use in a day or two. And to simplify the process, there isn't a need to actually...

    Re: electric fence

    My suggestion is to set up two separate fence chargers. Use one to protect the apiary site itself, and the second one to protect the rest of the 10 mile fence line. That way, when something damages...
  9. Re: Bear Fence with Solar Charger Question

    I got your joke; :D and see that you are a keen observer of Beesource threads. :p



    Yes, bypassing the "load" terminals does not allow the controller to protect the battery. But, in the big...
  10. Re: Bear Fence with Solar Charger Question

    Most likely, the controller's separate battery / load connections are intended to protect the battery from the load damaging the battery. Such damage could occur from either drawing too high a...
  11. Re: Setting up Deep for package installation and existing fully drawn out frames

    Assuming that you are going to utilize the queen cage that the queen in your package was shipped in, you likely will need to remove 1 frame from the box to allow space for the queen cage (9 frames...

    Re: Swimming pool question

    Just to reinforce enjambres' comments above ...

    Bees prefer "smelly" water. That swimming pool will have "smelly" water (from the treatments to keep the water "clean"). If you want the bees to...

    Re: Where did my bee's go?

    AFB (American Foulbrood) has no effect on humans, even when eating honey that might have AFB spores in it. So no worries there.


    There is no evidence that mineral oil fogging controls varroa in...

    Re: OAV with honey supers

    Something that seems (to me, at least; exercise your own judgement) to be a reasonable alternative is to physically block off the honey supers during the treatment. One way that could be done is to...

    Re: OAV with honey supers

    Well, if you wish to comply with the US EPA application regulations for oxalic acid as a varroa control, the honey supers should not be present. If you want to read the label / application...

    Re: Request to rename two sub-forums.

    I have no objection to changing those names. [The presumption is that the words (in parenthesis) in the post above would be a sub-head in a smaller font.]
