    Re: Band heater vaporizer.

    I treat from the back of my hives through a hole drilled in the top lip of my bottom board. I do not close the front entrances on my hives. It takes too long, and I can see that that the vapor is...

    Re: Band heater vaporizer.

    Frank, Maybe I'm mis-understanding your the intent of your question with the o-rings, but the beauty of these MOCAPs is that they're hollow, so you dump your OA in the plug, put it into the heater...

    Re: Band heater vaporizer.

    Hello All,
    Anyone interested in going in on a 50 pack of MOCAPS with me? I need about 20. I find that treating my yard goes WAAAAAYYY faster if I pre-load my MOCAPS and set one on each hive before...

    Re: Freezer vs fridge for storing comb?

    Thanks for the replies guys. I think I'll bag and freeze my comb, and then move to the fridge after a couple days at 0 degrees.

    I'm in Port St. John. It's a little unincorporated "town" between Titusville and Cocoa. Where are you?

    Freezer vs fridge for storing comb?

    After 2 years of beekeeping, I'm finally at a point where I will have some excess comb to store this winter.
    I'm in Central FL, and the wax moths and Hive beetles are plentiful here to say the...
  8. Re: Looking for suggestions about a queen-right hive with persistent laying worker.

    Take this for what it's worth. Next month will be my 2 year mark in beekeeping. I had a similar situation to what you describe this spring though. Had a hive go queen-less in a failed split. Started...

    Shaking brood frames

    Simple question. Can you damage capped (or open) brood by shaking bees off of brood frames?
    Last year I learned the hard away about treating Queen cells with care, but I have never read about a need...

    Re: screen or solid bottom?

    Robbin,
    Could you better describe or show pictures of the oil trays that you're suggesting?
    I'm in central FL and while I haven't had beetles take a hive down yet, they are certainly present....
  13. Re: Direct release virgin into queen right colony?

    I don't have enough experience to offer any advice, but please let us know how it goes Mike.
  14. Re: Will exposure to direct sunlight kill a queen?

    Thanks for the replies everyone, I had never heard of, nor would I have ever imagined that a queen could/would sting herself. I left her in the clip that if found her dead in, and after reading...
  15. Will exposure to direct sunlight kill a queen?

    Doing some manipulations on a hive today, put the queen in a clip (clear plastic) to keep her out of harms way. I get the hive put back together and grab the clip to release her back in to the hive...

    I can believe it. Two weeks ago I walked down to my hives, and saw one beginning to swarm. I watched as the cloud filled the air, and then they settled in a Brazilian pepper at the back corner of my...

    FlyBack Swarm x Queenless Hot Hive?

    Hola BeeSourcers,
    Here's my situation, I would love any insight you could offer.

    Hive 1.
    This is a hot hive that's about due to go laying worker after a couple unsuccessful attempts to re-queen...
  18. Re: Solar minimum phase the reason for the cold spring weather 2017 & 2018?

    THANK YOU for your position on that Radar. Can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I have strong feelings on it, but this is the last place I want to hear it argued.
  19. Re: 19 out of 20 colonies have queen cells...now what?

    Either make splits, or add supers with DRAWN COMB ASAP.
    Good luck....

    Re: You just might be a little Jealous*

    I'm curious, do those of you with incubators that will control CO2 and humidity levels use those functions? If so, where do you set those levels?
  22. Re: Has anyone used these for mason jar feeding?

    I do it the same way skip. But if these feeders worked better, there's no question they would be preferable to holes poked in lids.
    1. You don't need to cut giant holes in your lids.
    2. You...
  23. How long can you keep a hive sealed up? (with good ventilation)

    I made a new colony in a nuc box by pulling a single frame from five separate nucs, and adding a mated queen from another colony.
    In retrospect I made several poor decisions in putting this together...
  24. Re: How long for five frames to become a cohesive unified colony?

    We do have some AHB, but this queen came out of the hive she was hanging on. The reason she was there is that I covered this hive with a moving blanket when we had temperatures dip into the 30s. I...
  25. Re: Has anyone used these for mason jar feeding?

    Unfortunately I gave up on these also. They work for a little while, and then the twine becomes plugged and you get zero flow from them. Without the twine in the nipple, the jar will empty in a...
