Lucky Dog v- pun intended :D
Curious what you put in the hive for attractant to get all those guys over there !
Sounds like fun :)
I have organic homestead, Looking to start up my Top bar hive that is all set up and ready to go.
Just need to find someone in MA that has Natural Bees, No chemicals used for Mites or anything...
I have the small one. Like the one that APSI listed, but red. I had it from when I had chickens.
A place for them to move from one frame to another ?
Maybe there is not enough room to get to other frames?
They have these in the octagon hives I have seen
They said NON treated
The waterer for chicks works better.
Thanks, I was thinking 3/8th but was reading all over and was getting different spaces.
I don't want extra comb where it shouldn't be.
I built a long top bar hive, but may or may not make full frames to put in.
Just curious, what is the leeway space I can have on the sides and bottom, between the frame and hive ?
There seems to...
Good shot !
Maeve, How are the winds so far ?
Maybe there is something on the new frames they don't like ? Try taking out one of the foundations and see if they draw their own comb.
I'm a newbeek but when ever an animal refuses something...
Chad, where were these? All the ones that I could get free shipping were about $1.60 each (free shipping) $0.60 each (cheap w/ no shipping)
Back story - I am making my own Top bar hives but I would like to use Deep frames (no foundation) just to make things easy.
I am in the process of looking for a house to buy and can not keep them at...
The box has 34 bars.
Maybe I will put crunched up ball of paper wad to fill some of the back. I don't have a board but could make it I guess.
I have 2 'Flavors' of LemonGrass but it...
It was just ants. They came in when they did the siding on the house..... sorry should have been more specific. When they ripped off the old siding it must have disturbed the ants. I think it was...
I am going to be setting up a TBH at a friends house in hopes that it gets some run-away bee's from the Bee farm down the road :D
It has 1-1/4 and 1-1/2 bars.
What I need to know is this...
SO I live in a Duplex and have an EMPTY hive out back. It is about 15 feet from the back of the house.
Guy says he is only spraying the base of the house, not the yard or...
Did you post this in your Clubs website ?
I would try again.
Was it robbing? Did you check on them today ?
I was going to order unassembled deep frames, but the Amazon didn't give you the free shipping over $100.
I have not ordered yet....
Ok, that is what I thought you might be doing. Sounds like a good idea that I may do that (when and if I ever get bees). I think they have flexible white plastic board that might be easier to see...
I like this idea as I can not have a SBB, my hives will be on Cinder Blocks.
Do you have a pic of how you do this ? Do you have a long hole on one side of the hive that you slide in the cardboard ?...
Piss ants... LOVE that saying. When I moved from Mass to TX they called them that. I was like Huh ?
Then I was told that they are also known as Sugar ants... or piss ants because they piss you off...
Oh ok, I was thinking if there was a dearth or something, where you might have come but not have it full.
Right, but what do you do when the whole hive is full?
Or do you only let it be full enough so that you can have the follower board in at the back- for the feeder?
J-Rat, How do you feed when the hive is full ? (when needed)
