    Re: Brazil: 500 million bees die in 3 months.

    And yet a million bees is probably pretty accurate. I tell folks the same thing, about a million.

    Re: What recourse do I have?

    Give them a chance to mull it over. If bees are not specifically prohibited, then the law appears to be on your side. Would also help if you could find out who complained and maybe figure out a way...

    Re: Honey Barrel Liners

    Uline carries molded drum liners in various sizes. Don't think they meet food grade spec though. We used them for haz mat shipping.
  6. Re: Will bees pull out wax in NE Tennessee in August if I feed them?

    I also have hives that are drawing plenty of comb right now, and like ifix, they are being fed heavily. New wax is to replace combs taken for splits, so hives are strong, but not overly so after...

    Re: Queenless question?

    Did I miss the part about spontaneous generation of drone eggs? When a hive is queenless, they attempt to make a new queen from appropriately aged worker larvae. Unless there were already drone eggs...
  8. Re: Basic Drone and Mating Question From a Noob

    Someone here on Beesource likened drones to teenage boys. They lay around all day, don't do chores, dream about getting lucky, and eat you out of house and home. (not a direct quote). I think that...

    Re: How quickly do robbers kill the queen?

    To where would you move it? And after a few hours of intense robbing, there will be nothing left to save. Best plan is to put the robbing screen on as soon as you notice robbing activity. But make...
  10. Re: Bees are omnivores and need the Amino Acids from microbes in bee bead.

    Whatever happened to the Purina pollen sub that was made with chicken blood. Everybody got all grossed out but now it seems there may be more to the story.

    Re: Mixing a few (5-12) gallons of syrup

    Check the restaraunt actions in your area. I bought a 40 qt pot with lid for around $15. Put that on a fish fryer burner and you are good to go for 8 gallons at a time.

    Where is the video? Surely you did not go after a huge hornets nest armed with only two cans of Raid and did not get someone to record it!

    Re: Hornet Nest

    So y'all were serious about the shotgun? A hornet stung my dog two days ago and they have been eating my lilac bush. Time to load the 870 with some birdshot, but I've got to find the nest first.
  15. Re: Still have lots of drone brood so today I grafted.

    I had promised myself that last week I made my last split. Well, Sunday I got into one of my stronger hives and found a whole bunch of drones and capped drone cells. And I can always use a few extra...

    Re: modified taranov split

    Salty, I alluded to the proper way when asking why the mated queen was not staying with the foragers. I also suggested the OP read up on fly backs. Lauri's explanation is the definitive guide and...

    Re: Is fall treatment for varroa obligatory?

    I personally do not think it would hurt. Clean the inserts and give them a very light spray with Pam. Do a single OAV treatment and count the drops after 3 days. That will tell you if you need to...

    Re: Is fall treatment for varroa obligatory?

    Yes. But to be fair, I typically do a 3 x 7 day program due to work. The goal is not to kill every single mite with a single round, but to keep the mite load low enough that they are not a problem....

    Re: Is fall treatment for varroa obligatory?

    David, I do not understand your reluctance to continue treating NOW while the bees are raising the bees that will raise the winter bees. You need to be mite free at this time to have the strong...

    Outside of the weight issue is extraction. My Maxant 3200 holds 6 medium frames radially, but only three deep frames tangentially. So, it would take a lot longer, about 4x, to spin out the same...

    Re: Hornet Nest

    A propane fueled weedburner works pretty well as long as there is no danger of setting the woods on fire.
