    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    I would certainly not use water as an insulator:

    Which is very similar to honey at 0.5.
    :)

    To speak of good natural insulators,...

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    OK, I knew this.
    Unsure who even argues.
    :)

    Back to my "heating the Universe" example.
    The energy intake by the Universe from me is > zero in theoretic sense.
    And yet it is ~zero - so...

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    You probably meant - honey is a good heat sink due to the high thermal mass.
    Thermal transfer resistance of honey is not that high - to be a good insulator.
    Thermal mass <> thermal transfer.
  4. Re: 6-framer - larger-scale, commercial grade, mobile operator

    Yes, over-engineered.
    The "Horn" hives are supposed to be stupid simple and dirt cheap.
    That is the main premise of them.

    Yeah, those "Horns" a recent invention of an Ukrainian commercial,...

    Re: Best bee strain for KY?

    In my area (which is So WI) there was a batch of Saska queens/packages sold a couple of years ago.
    A lot that material all ended up dead, per the local chatter.
    Whatever it was - it was largely...

    Good deal.

    If the survival history of the line is reasonably long, I almost want to salvage your queen.

    Re: Moisture Board versus Quilt Block?

    The issue is not the money.
    The issue is the amount of the money.

    I am seating here at my computer and my body is loosing heat and, thus, I am trying to heat the Universe.

  8. Re: 6-framer - larger-scale, commercial grade, mobile operator

    LJ, you gonna like these.

    Though a 7-framer - already feels a bit heavy as for me.
    Maybe a bit over-engineered to my taste.
    Still cool.

    If you'll ask - what are those custom small frames?...

  13. Re: Primitive beekeeping (bee trees, log hives, etc)

    All good points, MSL.

    But down my alley - I don't intentionally kill the bees - thanks to more modern equipment, no need for the killing.
    I prefer to split, not push the swarms out (just so to...

    Exactly.
    In theory, Russia enjoys full democracy.

    Guess, CIA has been employing the same tactic globally for eons.
    But the KGB did the same.
    So unsure who taught who.

    I, however, will say - this is a much more general problem, not just PRM's.

    You don't want to do it at night.
    At night the bees crawl - a bad thing.
    You prefer them flying, not crawling on you.
