  1. Re: Oxalic Acid Dihydrate - Sublimation or Vaporization

    msl:

    Jack's point is that we are not using oxalic acid. We are using oxalic acid dihydrate. Pure oxalic acid would sublimate. Oxalic acid dihydrate does not. It must pass through the liquid...
  2. Re: Oxalic Acid Dihydrate - Sublimation or Vaporization

    I honestly don't know johno. Before listening to Dr. Jack, I was under the impression that we were sublimating the oxalic acid dihydrate.

    Here is the link to the podcast with Dr. Jack. I think...
  3. Re: It pays to be 'out' to your friends, or at least neighbors whose names you don't

    JW: I have never heard of it either. I was a little scared to google it. Never know what kids are up to these days.

    Re: Man Lake question

    JimD: I honestly don't know what is going on with Mann Lake right now. Not on the top of their game. There is another thread running on the board right now about some dissatisfaction with ML.

    Re: Hobbyist bottling tank suggestions?

    You made me laugh with that. Everybody who uses one knows exactly what you are talking about.

    Re: Varroa Easy Check- Do you use it?

    Trin: There was a lot of discussion about the term phoretic in the aftermath of Samuel Ramsey's research. But with decades of research papers inundated with the term, and it being a large part of...

    They might have just earned themselves a jar of honey.
  8. Oxalic Acid Dihydrate - Sublimation or Vaporization

    I learned something interesting a few weeks ago listening to Dr. Cameron Jack discuss oxalic acid applications. There has long been great confusion among beekeepers about whether we were actually...

    Re: Hobbyist bottling tank suggestions?

    I bought the 300 lbs (25 gallon) Maxant last season and have not regretted it a day. But I understand the OP wanting to do something a little lighter on the wallet. Maxant sells a quality product...

    Re: Varroa Easy Check- Do you use it?

    Johno: But doesn't little_john's statement apply exactly the same to your method? Your OAV will only drop phoretic mites, not those that are "tucked up in the cells of capped brood." So why...

    I have no doubt that you have figured it all out for England. If we could only all live there.

    Re: Very hot hive advice needed

    Kevin's hive was in his yard at home and he was having problems with them going after his animals, family and guests. That is why he felt he could not wait for the requeening process to calm down...

    Re: Varroa Easy Check- Do you use it?

    I use it and love it. It is $20 and you can make something that would work much cheaper, but this is an all-in-one kit designed for the purpose.

    I only use alcohol and have never tried powdered...

    Re: No luck in swarm traps

    Agree with GG. Nuc boxes are too small. This was proven in Seeley's research. Seeley determined that the optimum size of a swarm trap is 40 liters. I worked that out to be roughly the size of an...

    Re: Wax moths in my bee hive

    Honey will be fine. Wax moths do not target honey. They target brood cocoons on the darker frames.

    If you are seeing webbing in your hive, you may have too much space for your bee population...

    Re: Queen Selection

    The book states that the breeding stock was located in the Primorski area. This is a primarily coastal area. I would think it would be much more analogous in both latitude and coastal location to...

    They are not all in the south. There are member-breeders in Massachusetts, Indiana and Iowa.

    Re: Queen Selection

    I agree with msl's advice above. It is fun to research where you may want your hobby to go, but you need to get the basics down with some local bees. Try to find a beekeeper in your area that has...

    Matt:

    I made and used a homemade honey bottling tank for 3 seasons before I bought a water-jacketed Maxant tank. I don't have pictures of the actual one that I used, but I do have pictures of a...

    Re: Learning Grafting

    Your failure or success as a beekeeper will in no way be determined by whether you use screened bottom boards or solid bottom boards. I don't think anyone on this thread is trying to say otherwise. ...
