    Re: Potato cultivating....

    Well, I am a black currant guy.
    Got a hold of few Old World varieties (as sweet as grapes).
    Need to propagate more of these (should have time now that I decided to drop out of the community...

  3. Re: Darwinian black box selection for resistance Varroa destructor

    Let me remind you, MSL, the honey harvested from those few bee trees is marketed at about 3-4 times the generic, industrial honey.
    They are always sold out.
    More is not better.
    Bigger is not...

    Re: Potato cultivating....

    Normal fireplace ash is good.
    Potassium.
    Potatoes (and most all roots) like and need potassium.
    The potassium (and ash in general) does not add to a the soil acidity.
    Typical wood ash is rather...

    Re: Best way to cull a dying hive?

    Well, I did qualify (but you did not bold).
    Let me do it for you.

  6. Re: Darwinian black box selection for resistance Varroa destructor

    NO.
    Not in 200 years the bees were introduced there.

    YES.
    Some adaptation phenomenon did occurs and has been occuring as we speak.
    Which is probably rather a norm, granted many other examples....

    Sticky: Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?

    Indeed, AR.
    What?

    55-60 is full-blown workday for everyone - bees and people.
    Nothing to talk about (let alone write about).

  8. Re: new beehive designed to stop bees from dying over winter, and to have 24/7 monito

    Most all foam hives assume mostly open (and screened) bottom.
    The only way to work them.
    They do work.

    Scientists can argue.
    Meanwhile every one else should stop polluting.
  10. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    A mite by the name Vic lived in this container, in my kitchen for about a week.
    Several of them, actually. I just collectively call them all - Vic.

    Unsure what she ate, if anything.
    Maybe sucked...

    Re: Queen on top of frame

    Not only that.
    What about a queen walking out of the hive; getting some morning sun on the front wall; then returning back inside.
    Just like that.
    Do not have a picture of that - some shame.

    I could not sleep last night.
    I just came up with a new hive (re)design, while just laying there at 2am.

    And a couple more.
    In general - people don't give a crud.
    That's the essence of it, like it or not.

    Re: Global Warming

    Just a good informational article - they mentioned yesterday in NPR.
    In the US - it is really about transportation - that is the real elephant.
    All else is second tier pollution.

    Trish,
    Care to share few pics and notes on your current Dadants?
    In the "Horizontal hive" area be great.
    Thanks!

    PS: I still have a full box of Dadant frames unused - still flip-flopping;

  21. Re: Ignorant of top bars - isn't there northern limit at which it is a good idea?

    To be sure, they keep bees in Siberia up to USDA zone 3 and the no-fly time is up to 7 months (forget Alaska - they keep bees in Alaska close to the Pacific - mild).
    Not a problem IF the equipment...

  23. Re: Ignorant of top bars - isn't there northern limit at which it is a good idea?

    OK, so yes - I can see you have to use 2-inch XPS slabs on all sides.
    It works in some setups.

    The real pain with the TBH is when you need feed dry sugar from the top.
    For me often this means if...

    We reached out freezing points on Oct 12-14, 2019.
    There was ice in the buckets and bird basins.

    Not the killing frost just yet - the dandelions are still blooming in the parks.
