  1. Re: Penn State "COMB" project posts Dec 2019 update

    When the main reason for existing of near 90% of the colonies in the US is mass pollination; perhaps the present bee characteristics and supply system is filling the need. That system has a huge...

    Re: Dehumidifying honey

    I believe the pump is to dispose of the water. My 20 year old one has only a bucket that needs dumping manually. I think they all will have fans to move the air thru the units. The chemical dessicant...

    Re: Power For A Vaporizer

    Thanks Rober;

    I thought there must be different sized batteries in some of them otherwise things didnt add up; no free lunch.

    Re: Low cost bee box construction

    If a person is not prepared to make tight fitting finger joints then they would be better off with rabbeted joins. Common constsruction glues dont have much strength as gap fillers!
    I have made a...
  6. Re: 6-framer - larger-scale, commercial grade, mobile operator

    I dont know whether we in Canada get a different homepage for Youtube, but anyways I cant find the clickable landmark Matt describes. Can't get to square one.:s

    Re: Power For A Vaporizer

    If I am reading it correctly only a 26 amp hour battery. 16 hours to recharge. Do they state 800 amp boost? That seems a bit optimistic...... unless maybe on a dead short?

    Re: Extending Shelf Life of 2:1 Sugar Syrup

    Yes, inverting is one of the "special conditions" I had in mind. Smooth, clean containers and no traces of crystals or physical contaminates. The possibility of creation of hydroxymethyl furfurol...

    Re: Extending Shelf Life of 2:1 Sugar Syrup

    2.5:1 would make a supersaturated solution. That would take quite special conditions to keep from crystallizing.:scratch:
  12. Re: Penn State "COMB" project posts Dec 2019 update

    Szabo's bees of 8 years ago would show fierce allogrooming and cell uncapping when mite counts were up. Still I had one new colony that started to dwindle till I got over the idea of not needing...

    Re: Extending Shelf Life of 2:1 Sugar Syrup

    MB's method is good but sometimes we dont know how many pints volume our containers are. If I am guessing at that figure I will use two containers of sugar to each container of water. That way I...

    Re: Is selfishness hardwired in homo sapiens?

    "I do think we are hardwired to learn and progress as well".

    I agree. I think that adaptation process may be tempered to prevent jumping all over the map in response to temporary undulations in...
  16. Sticky: Re: squarepeg 2015-2019 treatment free experience

    I think it may have been Squarepeg that dug up the bit about there being multiple sub strains. Some are much easier to eradicate than others and oxytet resistance is showing up in some types. I may...
  17. Re: 6-framer - larger-scale, commercial grade, mobile operator

    Greg;

    I wish you could link us to a Russian~English voice to voice app! I mostly gathered from the fellows knitted brows that this method is really a headache!:scratch: I think I missed a lot.

    It is now established that there are many variants. An excerpt from a 2014 study in Britain.

  19. Re: High certainty swarm prevention in dense suburb

    I wait till there is roughly 6 frames of mostly capped brood before splitting but cold nights is more a problem for me. Two underpopulated colonies grow very slowly. For certain though it is advised...

    Re: Queen Flew Away Today (Nov 30)

    I had a colony that showed up queenless this past spring. I swapped a frame with eggs from a queenright colony. They started cells but too early to have drones. I was just trying to keep them from...

    Re: Is the Bee-Space necessary ?

    Yes they seem to like to throw in a few curves. I have pondered putting starter tabs out near the endbars and leave the center bare. That might make them start centered at the ends first and then...

    I don't think the bees arr at all interested in the parsing of the concept or who put a name to it, but I know how predictably they will deal with it in anything similar to common Langstroth...

    Traits that contributed to survival have obviously been selected and retained. Loyalty to a strongly defined group would be one. Where such groups were in competition with other groups quick and...
