  1. Re: Oxalic acid is harmless - I don't bother removing honey supers any longer.

    I'm certainly an opinionated person, and I anticipated negative feedback, but overall there were mostly positive and educated responses despite a couple of character attacks.

    We can at least agree...
  2. Re: Oxalic acid is harmless - I don't bother removing honey supers any longer.

    Beekeepers have always been a competitive and opinionated bunch.

    Instead of working together, some choose to resort to finger pointing and character assassination.

    Re: APIVAR

    You need to remove the supers before apivar. Unlike formic and oxalic acids, apivar is a legitimate pesticide and will likely cause cancer if it gets into food.
  4. Re: Oxalic acid is harmless - I don't bother removing honey supers any longer.

    Heh. This thread is a good example of why I wouldn't dare treat my honey to be sold with OA.

    Even beekeeper's don't understand basic science here. I can only imagine the average American...
  5. Re: Oxalic acid is harmless - I don't bother removing honey supers any longer.

    Have you ever eaten spinach or almonds before? You're eating the same amount of the same exact chemical that I ingested.

    If you didn't read my original post, I clearly stated that I don't treat...

    Re: APIVAR

    I use apivar for my out apiary so I don't have to go there every week to do OAV treatments.

    It's very expensive, even in the 50 packs, but its effective and I can just leave it there on the...
  7. Oxalic acid is harmless - I don't bother removing honey supers any longer.

    This week I was scratching my head trying to figure out how to remove the partially filled honey supers before OAV treatment and decided, "you know what, let me just eat some of this stuff and test...

    Re: Feisty bees are more hygienic?

    Russians can be aggressive, but they generally don't chase more than 50 yards.

    Re: How to deal with efb/ afb

    You could call your state inspector.

    You may want to scrape back the comb and take a good picture with flashlight etc.

    EFB larva melt, harden, and form scales that are easily removable.

    I...

    While I was out in the yard today taking pictures, I went ahead and gave all of the hives a Oxalic vapor treatment. Before I did that, I did run a mite test on the one hive that is still...

    30 mites per 200 bees?

    I think that's all I needed to read.

    What exactly did you do to treat for mites in the fall and winter?

  17. Re: OSBN - Opening the Sides of the Brood Nest

    Bump. I've seen colonies put on a full super of honey and draw out 2 OSBN deep frames now without swarming.

    Other colonies have drawn out 2 mediums frames AND 2 deep frames and still have not...

    Re: Birds

    The biggest danger are people mowing their clover lawns down into the dirt.

    Mowers are the biggest danger to bees.

    If you're gonna go after anyone, go after the people mowing their lawns.
  19. Re: Why do drones congregate in certain hives in an Apiary?

    If we're going to make those comparisons, we can go down the road of the praying mantis.

    Anyone else getting a crappy year?

    We've had sunny warm weather and all the flowers on trees they used for honey got killed from the freeze in the middle of may.

    In a colony strong enough to expand the brood out to the edge of the box, I've found they're also strong enough to swarm without having to deal with OSBN.
