    Re: Article on large losses from wasps

    I have never seen a hive taken down by wasps and this area has them in great abundance. They try to get in constantly, but any decent strength hive can keep them out . I would look elsewhere for the...

    Re: Cold, Wet, Mud, Late bloom

    There were reports of lots of big losses from all over the place. Poor nutrition, new viruses, varroa getting out of control, maybe other things. Personally I have great hives and plenty of junk...

    Re: F550 question

    Probably why they brought out the Aisin tranny in the 2013 heavy duty trucks. Stronger and heavier.

    Re: VM MINI VAPORIZER REVIEW

    Nice video. One thing I like to do is carry the oxalic in a pouch like this one that holds a plastic jar of acid.

    Re: Hummer-Bee vs Swinger

    Same here. I keep the NMC Superbee(swinger with larger Kubota) around for loading syrup totes, etc. and use the Hummer when bees need moved. It really does maneuver easier in really tight yards like...

    Re: Hummer-Bee vs Swinger

    Yep I still remember flying through the rows at night in the almonds, shifting gears on the towable lift, wondering when I would careen into a tree.

    Re: Hummer-Bee vs Swinger

    You just had to do it.....:no:
    Well I'll go first. I have a superbee thats 6 years old, and a new this year Hummerbee classic. Both get the job done. The Superbee is heavier and doesnt turn as...

    Just went out and did a couple hundred more. It didnt seem to bother my back as much . I felt a little more comfortable using it too. No problem with any acid getting in the fan. Starting to like...

    Re: VM Mini

    I dont know what I can add, the video covers it all. The oxalic acid (any commonly used oxalic acid dihydrate) is dumped in the tube with a turky baster . I guess one could weigh each dose if one...

    The video is from the manufacturer demonstrating his device. I would never consider firing up one of these high volume devices without proper protective gear. I dont see any of these vaporizers as...

    I dont run 6 ways so take this for what its worth. I once rented some hives on bottom boards to another beekeeper who did run 6 ways. We set them on their pallets(not clip pallets) to move into the...

    Sounds like a plan. You wont regret it!
  21. Re: How does the load cushion feature work on the Hummerbee?

    Its nice in some of my rough yards , but not essential, if I take my time not to fly over the rocks and holes. I doubt I would add one if my lift didn't already come with one. For me the clamp is...

  23. Re: How does the load cushion feature work on the Hummerbee?

    I cant answer how it works.Its a hydraulic dampener that absorbs the 'bounce' in the forks when driving over rough ground. Its a nice feature. I have it on my superbee and hummer and they both work...
