    Re: When adding a frame of brood

    I have adopted Vance's method as well, it takes one to two hours depending on temps and population in the hive,

    Why the 39 f Cutoff For Sublimated OA?

    Is there a reason one shouldn't treat below 39 f? Since I got a sublimator that does not invade the hive bees do not stream out escaping a hot iron.
    I had bees bearding and streaming out before I...
  4. Re: Beek attire - Wish I knew before yesterday...

    I bought a pair made from space age material that wicks and cools. I have to say, these work so much better than cotton and I sweat profusely. I need a pair of hair clips I place right behind my...

    Re: Born to Swarm?

    That idea looks great on paper, Roberto, but we had such crappy weather the first 3 weeks of May it would have been risky to open a hive up to do splits. In a normal year your idea is perfect, our...

    Re: Born to Swarm?

    Thanks JW, at this point I'm about to put the frames from the split back in since they have very little brood, remove all queen cells and add a frame of brood/eggs from a more desirable and less...

    Born to Swarm?

    So, I have this hive, last year it swarmed twice. I did not go out after the first swarm last year to clear queen cells so subsequent swarms were my bad.
    I am working on swarm controls this year in...

    Re: Introducing the Easy Vap Pro

    Aww, c'mon, it was my first time. :D I set a 10 minute timer on the first one as I treated it so I spent 5 minutes standing around drinking coffee waiting to open them up again after treating the...

    Re: Introducing the Easy Vap Pro

    John, I fired up your Easy Vap this morning, all I can say is wow. I was using the hot iron inserting it through a rear port in my hives. The iron angered the bees, caused bearding, and had me on...

    Please..., kill it.
  11. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    Well, it seems we've plumbed the depths of inanity. This thread has deteriorated to ridicule and mockery. I will be glad when these last few days of the kickstarter are over and Daisy can go in...
  12. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    So look, here's how I view it. This is a tool, nothing more. This will not be some end all to issues with beekeeping. I know a lot by watching the traffic in and out of a hive. When things look...

    Re: Thirsty bees

    I'm seeing the same behavior here, lots of thirsty bees chasing water. I'm still stocking sugar bricks and pollen patties so hopefully no one is starving. We missed most of the willows because of...

    Daisy, I don't think you should buy it.
  16. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    You know, I'm fairly new to bee keeping but one of the early lessons was, 'listen when you open the hive.' I have and quickly learned when a hive is queenless. Why you can't extend that to other...
  17. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    I wonder if a new hive tool would get this much scrutiny.

    Oh, wait..., this is a new hive tool.

    Nevermind.

    Slow and Cold Start to Spring Flows Here

    I'm thinking we're about 2 weeks late this year, so far. We'll be 3 to 4 weeks late by the time we get into spring around here. In my little corner of Montana we're stuck in the low forties and...
  19. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    I'm curious about a couple things, David. The goal was $13400, what happens to the money in excess of that? And, do you have a sense of how much the app will cost in its full form after the beta...

    Re: Heating Honey to stop crystallization

    Here in Montana I can sell all the raw honey I care to. However, processed honey is a whole new ball game requiring inspections and such, even trickier selling out of state. For our use, and advice...

    There is no quicker way to get comb drawn out in supers than to put your queen in the supers with an excluder just below for a couple weeks. After there is lots of comb and brood move your queen...
