    Re: ProVap110 video

    We have a similar problem here in Florida. We don't get much of a brood break. I find right after Thanksgiving to be about as broodless as we get. But, you can get a hive almost completely broodless...

    Re: Direct releasing queens for packages

    Personally I think a slow release is better. I think a lot of problems with packages come from people being in too big a hurry to release their queen. They patiently wait months to get their bees...

    Re: Updates on using oxalic acid w/shop towels

    I think he is still working out the bugs. He published quite a bit of information at first. Lots of people tried it and it hasn't lived up to the hype. Now it sounds like he has gone back to the...

    Re: Best way to transport packages...

    A mini van for 20 to 30 would be fine. I have used my wife's station wagon several times to move 25. I'm not sure about the best way for a couple hundred. I move 50 in the back of the truck. But, I'm...

    Re: Using clear tubing with honey pump

    Or save up your money and buy a pump like the Maxant vertical honey pump that is designed to pump cold honey out of barrels. It will make your life a lot easier. It is a big enough pain to pump out...

    They sure do, some are ok and some dump semi loads where ever they want. Semi loads start showing up in Central and South Florida every year around the middle of September. I'm with Fusion though you...

    Re: Bee Yards- How do you find new bee yards?

    Google earth is awesome! I can spot an Orange grove in a second. Then I have another window open on my computer with the property appraisers website and I can go right to the owners info and get...

    Re: Wife is allergic to wood smoke

    I use pine straw 99% of the time. But, it has been raining so much lately I haven't been able to restock. So I used the paper out of the paper shredder today and it worked quite well.

    Re: Cut Comb Honey. Foundation Vs. No Foundation

    I would not leave the excluder off especially for comb honey. Now I do leave it off at first but just long enough for the bees to start working the foundation then I put it on.

    Re: Quad Bike adaptation to Hive mover

    Yes, it's contented with a linear actuator at the top so the mast will tilt in and out. I would say it's a necessity the forklift would be almost useless without it. Even just a little difference in...

    Re: Honey excluder question for those who use them

    That's exactly how I do it too. If I have to use foundation above the single deep I will let the bees start working the super before I add the excluder. Then I will shake the bees down and add the...

    Re: Swarm - Help!

    You probably have a little time but, I would do it as soon as possible. Why wait unless it is unavoidable for some reason. Give them a frame of brood from one of the other hives. It will help them...

    Brad bee is right on. They won't except a queen if they have already started their own cells. Shake the bees off the frame and look real close. Remove the obvious cells first before you shake for...

    Re: Why do I need a frame jig?

    If you put a staple from the end bar into the top bar from the side you won't pull the top bar off. This is arguably the most important nail of all.

    Sounds like you have the right idea. Yes, i would keep the feeder full while they are making cells. My guess is that it is your grafts. I know you said you felt good about them but, it sounds like...

    Re: ordering packages in march

    No, they will need liquid feed to build new comb. The baggie trick is ok. But, it's hard to beat a jar on top of the hive.
  24. Re: Can you take frames of brood & bees from multiple hives to do a split?

    yes, do it all the time. Pull a frame from a frame or two from a booming hive and replace with drawn comb to keep the queen busy and out of the trees. Use these pulled frames to make up nucs....
