    Re: Modified Hive

    My experience is that they will cover anything placed in the hive with propolis, making the camera inoperable quickly.

    Re: Snake camera

    Bought one recently to check a pipe clog. I'll try it out and let you know. This one comes with adjustable led lights.

    Re: Swarm imminent, other problem?

    The only good way of determining your mite load is to do an alcohol or powdered sugar wash and counting the mites you get. I have only once seen a mite on a bee. If you were actually able to see...

    You may be crushing some bees in your inspection that then get hauled out.

    The thing is, even after all the convolutions, this is still a very strong hive.

    Re: What to do?

    One looks like a virgin emerged. the others were torn down. I'm guessing the first one out killed the others and then the bees tore them down.

    Re: What to do?

    Well, a day late and a dollar short. I had capped queen cells on Saturday and today they are empty. Hopefully things work out. If not I'll combine with a weaker hive.

    Re: What to do?

    Thanks for the advice. I'll give that a shot. Some drones are still being produced so that may work out.

    I...

    Re: Formic Pro deadouts

    I have never had an issue with Formic Pro but I tend to be extra cautious with it. I only apply one pad even on a double deep with a honey super on top. Follow the first pad with a second at 10...

    Re: Plastic ????

    You could also try wax foundation with imbedded wires. They will probably hold up better during the extraction.
  17. Re: Rant: People really need to stop mowing lawns every single week.

    My town's ordinance says that weeds need to be kept below 18" so that leaves a lot of leeway for doing what you want to do. Also, they have a 20 acre park behind the town hall that they keep as a...

    Re: A hive swarmed and then..

    They have been in the hive for a week so I guess they liked their new accommodations. Saw new larvae during yesterday's inspection and they're bringing in pollen.

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

    Just commenting on the fact that I deleted my own post. Case of self censorship. I think I was violating the rules of the forum and it was a wasted comment anyway. At any rate good luck!
