    Re: When is too late?

    I say - a nice, fat chance in your whereabouts they'd be OK if this is a true swarm.
    Provide them, of course.

    Sticky: Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?

    Just so it happened, I scored 100 pounds of fondant for free (well, for the cost of an hour of apple tree pruning consultation).
    Fondant maybe usable as we speak.
    I have no experience with fondant...

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

    Right.
    As long as I keep the under-frame space clear proactively, I can do the same most any time and with minimal disturbance (with the long hives).

    For the CVH hives, I want to make 1-2 bottoms...

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

    Sounds like a complicated pieced of equipment that is too advanced for me. :)

    With the long hives, no built-in trays are needed. Any retired piece of cookware works just as well.

    The real issue...

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

    I, basically, smoked a couple more of the virtual dead colonies (as they most certainly die anyway).
    Just to ensure the bees did not die of the smoke - they did not.

    I also pulled out of the #1...
  8. Re: Randy Oliver on his attempts at selective breeding for mite resistance

    It appears so for me - here and now.
    Maybe deep in the Ozarks it is different.
    But lazy beekeeping here and now?
    Forget-about-it. I have been trying.

    I will still hold the goal of 50%...
  9. Re: Randy Oliver on his attempts at selective breeding for mite resistance

    Unsure how knowing the counts would have affected my total loss last year. Hard to think back.

    But for sure, I would LOVE to know why my "breeder queen" of 2019 season totally collapsed as early...

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Workshop.

    Hey Robert,
    My real issue is space.

    What you are saying is indeed a no-brainer solution.
    But for my 0.25 acre suburban property, the space is the most limiting factor.
    Of course, I did this to...

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Workshop.

    Saturday was warm but insanely windy to work the wood.
    Instead, I harvested some veg.
    Yesterday, I almost opened up my shop for few hours - and still did not (too cold for my chronic bronchitis to...

    Re: Potato cultivating....

    This year I am on a break from the potatoes (just did a little bed to taste the real taters - no more).
    I wish the potatoes grew just like apples.
    But not so.
    I wish the apples tasted just like...
  13. Re: 11 out of 12 packages dead by 1-15 and still addicted. I must be crazy.

    Randy Oliver demonstrates the opposite - none of these are required.
  14. Re: Randy Oliver on his attempts at selective breeding for mite resistance

    This is all really easy.
    What is on your list, AR, is nothing new - these issues have been forever.
    And yet still the people kept the bees forever too.

    So - all those variables, ALL of them...
  15. Re: Video - comparison of Dadant to Lazutin Long hives

    I find this video interesting, hence posting it.
    The Lazutin hive beekeeper harvested his honey (as he always does - in October or even later).
    He will now be warming the frames and extracting the...
  16. Re: Randy Oliver on his attempts at selective breeding for mite resistance

    Even the "low mite level" is to be defined.
    Is it 1%?
    Is it 5%?
    I heard even 10% is OK....
    This is the main reason I realized I need to start doing my own counts.
    No clear cut answer really -...

    Regarding the Russian History, the long past, the recent, and the present (my own history too), I will not be doing it on this forum.

    Re: Bottom space

    If you disregard the so-called standards (bee space, frame size, and similarly artificial things deemed "required"), things work out just as well.

    Re: Post-mortem of a TBH

    Pictured capped brood mortality with associated punctured caps and dead young bees still in the cells - mite indication.
    Also one can observe mite poop.
  23. Re: This is how I easily feed bees in side the hive !

    Yep; exactly.
    Old times they did not have as much plastic and glass disposable containers.
    Nowadays abundance of recyclables is both - a terrible problem and and a god-sent resource (IF used).
  24. Re: This is how I easily feed bees in side the hive !

    Think of it - you can add syrup directly through the screen - no need to open up anything.
    Just pour syrup right though the screen as you have flat feeders - stupid simple approach.
    Pretty cool.
