    Re: A question about feeding

    Yeah, make mead!
  2. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    Since the above post, I treated all hives (on Saturday). I then selectively treated 5 of them again on Tuesday. I think Tuesday's was treatment #12 for most of those colonies, if I am not mistaken.

    Re: High mite load opinions

    I have 4 colonies on which I did my 12th treatment on (all since August). I have another thread going about that. Anyway, it seems to be getting under control now. All to say, it looks like you just...
  4. Re: When do you add fondant/mountain camp sugar?

    I put my Mountain Camp in when I insulate the hives. I did all that on Saturday. We have had temps down to the teens a few times already, and are in the 30s and below each night now. The days are...

    Re: My first Melomel - elderberry mead

    And some wine snobs have the spelling of a cave man. I assume pallet = palate?

    Thanks for that portion of your post that was very useful, which was most of it.
  7. Re: Taped seams created moisture buildup- hopefully removed it in time

    I do both. Inner cover is the one that gets it done, outer because I have some spare foam lying around.

    Re: Two Hives - combine?

    They both have mites.

    Based on the little information I have, I suspect they are both headed towards death this winter. Again, based on little information, i would rather have one strong (and mite...
  9. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    We'll see, I just today did my 10th treatment since the beginning of August.


    Without the boards, I probably would have assumed that one or two treatments did the trick, as I certainly would not...

    Re: Global Warming

    Whether I agree with you or not, I am not sure what your goal is in posting.

    If you hoping to convince someone who is not on your side, you probably won't. If you hoping to offend someone who is...
  11. Re: Taped seams created moisture buildup- hopefully removed it in time

    I am not sure that tape alone would cause the problem you describe. Of course, that is easy for me to say, not having seen it, and sitting a few hundred miles away.

    Re: Preparing a small hive for winter

    I have no experience with EFB. That said, I do have experience trying to get colonies sucessfully through winter, and I would give up on that one, and do as squarepeg suggested.

    If you decide to...

    Re: High Tech Beehives

    Well, the best advice I have is to make sure that the donors are getting the real picture of your work and goals. I am well aware of what it is like working in the non-profit sector, having done so...
  15. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    Well, since I treated on Tuesday, the mite drop has improved. Still not where I want it to be, but about half of what I had on the previous shot. I'm going to treat again tomorrow (Saturday).

    Re: Cost of package in 1959

    Re: High Tech Beehives

    Yeah, I see a lot of "salesmanship" on the site as well. It is unfortunate, as the (supposed) goal of helping beekeepers (and honey bees) in PR is quite worthwhile, but that message is lost in all...

    Re: High Tech Beehives

    On the middle of your front page, "Why are bee's so important?", and further down "Join us in saving the bee's of the world" - the plural of "bee" is "bees."

    And frankly, the honey bee is not...

  20. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    Yep, this is where I am as well. Except I don't have the Easy Vap.

    Re: Mountain Camp - proactive or reactive?

    I lay a 5-gallon paint bucket on its side, slightly sloped towards the opening to keep rain out. Then I put a tray of Ultrabee dry in there. Sometimes they are all over it, other times they ignore it...
  23. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    Thanks for all the input everyone. I think next year I will try starting a little earlier. It is my practice as well to do a mid-winter "one shot" OAV treatment, and I will do that this year as well....

    My first Melomel - elderberry mead

    I bought this kit just to try my hand at making mead. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mead-Making-Kit/153156566890 It contains a 1 gallon glass carboy, stopper with air lock, yeast, and yeast nutrient....
  25. This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    I have 11 colonies of various configurations in my one apiary. Some of the queens are this year's locally raised mutts, a couple are saskatraz, and who knows for the rest (I got them "used").

    Here...
