    Thanks for sharing!
    I was looking for a good photo identification guide.

    Re: How do I relax w/bees?

    Bad idea.
    What IF someone actually needs your urgent attention?
    What IF they can not get close either.
    What are they to do? Throw rocks at your?

    You will basically learn to tune out the details...

    Re: How do I relax w/bees?

    Forget this non-sense and the pop-culture gimmicks.
    Yeh, those guys are cool and whatever.
    Their bees are 0% defensive, let them be proud about it.
    Or they handle tiny nucs - which by definition...

  8. Re: Is it tougher and tougher to control mites with OAV?

    And does it happen EVERYWHERE and at EVERY single application FOREVER and EVER for years and years to come (the 100% mite kill efficiency, to clarify)?

    Re: Africanized Beehive ? Someone has tried ?

    In warm climate, I'd just do the cheapest, lowest tech horizontal hives and be done.
    Be it Jackson HH or a classic top bar.

    Vertical hives are not needed in tropics and really are...

    For the most of us - this is how things are.
    Not much else you can do.

    Well, sharing/purchasing/importing promising stock into your location is one good thing to do.

    This is a good darn find, LJ.
    I now got into watching more of his Warre hive episodes.
    This fits really well with the Russian-style UDAV hives I also watch.

    Eastern Euro, pretty sure.

    You know, as soon I see the discussion turn into the tabs and bars and the millimeters - I get less and less excited.

    Does not matter to me, GG.
    I play the dice game.

    Overall, the more we look at it, the more we understand how little we understand.

    Funny but the owner of the Vladimirski hive business (a very large long hive) and a Youtube personality used to run the "Cassette hives".

    Yep; do that and don't worry.
    As long as there plenty of space for the spill-over bees - there is nothing to worry.
    All my long hives operate that way.

  23. Re: Is it tougher and tougher to control mites with OAV?

    Somehow, the "adaption to treatment" by default is viewed as if some qualitative change - like say, a thicker shell.

  24. Re: Strong colony- add/leave at this point in season

    What is your dividing board by intent?
    Is it a "pass-around" follower board?
    OR is it a "bee-proof" divider?
    You do one or the other and make sure they work as intended.

    The frame size is not principal at all.
    Few millimeters do not matter - in general it is the same size and proportion.

    Working the sets is just a normal evolution of frame by a frame.
