    Sticky: Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?

    Good point, GregV. I am guilty of breaking my own rule of maintaining these Warre hives as 'genetic resources'. In this case, I thought I could "help" and look where that got me. I should have just...

    Re: Two queens at Carl's 2nd-Hand Shop

    Nice, Patrick. You are the cut-out king!

    Just out of curiosity, what do you do with all these colonies you rescue? Do you find good homes for all of them?

    WOW did I mess up today (thus proving my own point).

    It has finally cooled-off a bit here in Western Kentucky so I decided to dive-into #1906 to see what was going on. In retrospect I should have...

    Sticky: Re: GregV's Alternative way to keep (have?) bees.

    Thank you for your replies- I am afraid that my post emphasized the wrong aspect of why I shared it here insofar that what I thought most interesting were the modular, self-supporting...

    Sticky: Re: GregV's Alternative way to keep (have?) bees.

    At least a finder's fee, right?

    In the 3rd video he discusses the timing of opening the connectors between the colonies but doesn't get into much depth- I wonder if there is a written procedure of...

    Thank you for the update- I didn't know that was you or I would have given you the credit!

    It is a really interesting concept and I could only find one other forum (over in the UK)...

    So I saw this on another forum today and immediately thought of your experimentations- have you ever researched this one?

    Sticky: Re: GregV's Alternative way to keep (have?) bees.

    It is a wonder that bees can deal with them at all given their robust constitution. Do we have an over/under on how many days they'll survive?
  15. Sticky: Re: Beekeeping using Square Dadant hives, treatment free since 2005

    Thank you for your reply, Fusion_power. This is a good observational technique to keep tucked-away for future reference. Seeing you post frequently on growingfruit.org, I get the impression you know...

    I appreciate the update. So I must confess that I have never heard about washboarding being indicative of internal colony dynamics. In your experience does it's presence or absence...

    Sticky: Re: GregV's Alternative way to keep (have?) bees.

    This makes sense to me, GregV. If nothing else, you get some return on your investment of time and resources from this colony and give them a fresh start... though it is hard in my mind to see where...
