    Re: Two untreated hives in my bee yard

    And in addition to that treatment in summer is complicated and/or expensive. So, in 'theory' very efficient winter treatment plus just a bit resistant bees and summer treatment could be skipped,...

    Re: Two untreated hives in my bee yard

    An alternative method for selecting treatment free bees should be offered to new optimistic beekeepers. The principle of method is not selecting from the best, but deselecting the worst, bees or...
  4. Re: Taped seams created moisture buildup- hopefully removed it in time

    The central part of current version of my top feeder is wider, but in first version was just like that on picture from 1880. I just wanted the central part to be removable that swarm can be shaken...

    Re: High Tech Beehives

    My opinion about acoustic information is that maybe it is to late when bees are starting to buzz differently. For example; statistically the most dangerous thing for my bees is starvation; so...
  8. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    Be prepared for selective treatment in fall. Do at least two (OAV) unselective treatments in winter (when colonies are brood less).
    Expect (aim for) 10 to 20 % of losses.

    Re: Floating Hive Stand

    Conditions like that are problematic for bees. The question is how to make dry and warm hive? Parameters are: ventilation is only needed to replace CO2 for oxygen; and removing water from air by...

    Re: Floating Hive Stand

    Treatment in late August is probably to late. (try formic acid in July and later OAV)


    Humid air is better in conducting heat; it chills cluster more then dry air. (test the internal circulation...

    Re: Heat treatment for varroa

    The treatment time is very long, but the good thing in that context is that only one treatment is needed (e.g. in July) and maybe another one in September. (later OAV)
