  1. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    Yep.
    One reason I want to produce and sell something like these (minimal work for me; higher price per unit of my work).
    No processing means - no legal requirements to be met for food processing....

    Re: Small winter cluster

    That "discoloration of honey" and " mold along the bottom of the box" are a non-issue.
    Normal.
    None of these will damage your bees.
  3. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    All we need to do - STOP producing so much of the cheap and mediocre honey.
    Lots of mediocre and cheap honey killing everything and anything.

    It should be like this:

    Re: Trying in Fairbanks

    Sure; understood; the right bee in the US could be of the Russian/Carni origination stock.

    A bonus - super long polar days in summer (bees will be working long hours) and very good, ecologically...
  5. Re: Can Palmer Style Double Nucs be used to produce Honey?

    Me too - loving it.
    I got hundreds of recycled frames for the setup right now as-is (no need to be building custom frames).
    Just need the boxes.

    Not the beloved 300x300 square, but pretty darn...
  6. Re: Can Palmer Style Double Nucs be used to produce Honey?

    Well, notice - two older veterans were pulling honey by-a-frame due to a bigger frames.

    The solution is trivial:
    -make the supers on a smaller frame (Lang mediums, for example)
    -pick a box...

    True noney road-warriors based on 6-framers.

  8. Re: Can Palmer Style Double Nucs be used to produce Honey?

    Here is a video - the entire yard is nothing but 6-frame hives (call them nucs if wish, they will only smile at you).

    That is a lot queens there per one yard of a stand.

    I like this production...

  10. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    Transporting log hives by a horse was rather routine.
    Not a big deal.
  11. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    1) Imagine that most any one has several distributed yards.
    2) Imagine that the mega mono-crop fields, horizon to a horizon do not exist.
    3) Imagine that the pesticides are not invented yet.

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

    I certainly will not breed any super-resistant bees.
    Not the goal and not possible.
    I have repeated this many, many times.

    But, better locally adapted, average bees - why not, possible to do,...

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

    By now I am totally confused with your position, MSL.
    What is it?

    So what is the point of artificially propping the bees anyway?
    All you are saying - it does not matter.

    So why do YOU graft? ...

    Re: Whats your definition of feral bees?

    Yes, as has been discussed.
  15. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    Just down my alley.
    Few days ago I posted few links to 6-frame based production hives.
    I spent the time over the holidays trying to nail their methods and I think I got them.

    To be fair, even in...

    Not ALL my queens are marked.
    Heck, I got myself feral bees!

    Re: How do you ventilate Layens hives?

    LJ, exactly.

    Scraping the propolis off the wooden ware is a chore I never have time for.
    So my 1.25" frame as a default is a good default - since effectively it is always MORE than 1.25"....

    Re: How do you ventilate Layens hives?

    LOL! I figured.

    After my first winter struggles with these top bars (trivial dry sugar feeding was a major PITA) - I said - forget about it.
    That is Spain there.
    Not here.

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

    Disagreed.

    This is only so IF you have completely uniformed units in each and every possible way in space and time (and all way down to the genes).

    Not applicable to my collection at all....

    Re: Is the Bee-Space necessary ?

    It appears as a very strong urge to build in THAT direction, not THIS direction.
    I am with GG.

    I am sure some will scoff at impact of magnetic, electric, "whatever" fields on the bee behaviors....

    MSL, as usually a good post and enough food to chew on.
    I will discuss given enough time.



    This is true but - like I said, the overall loss #s are very misleading in that some people somehow...
  23. Re: 6-framer - larger-scale, commercial grade, mobile operator

    Another version of the same - 6-framers.
    Very cool ergonomic setup.

    Re: Trying in Fairbanks

    Just recently I posted a video link about wintering near Novosibirsk, Russia - USDA 2.
    Similar to Fairbanks.
    They keep bees - not a problem.
    But have to have the right bee.
  25. Re: 6-framer - larger-scale, commercial grade, mobile operator

    The channel owner takes apart a couple of his 6-framers (no preps/no setups - just as-is).
    He has not looked inside yet since the last year.

    He is doing it because the channel subscribers asked...
