This is an amazing book, both for the insightful conclusions of the research and the book is well-written, too.
point well taken.
I'm doing some experiments around feeding, so it would be more of a problem with me.
You'll see my thread elsewhere which is a variation on your question. There is some downside to catching a swarm late in the season, being that the swarm is likely to be on the weaker side. So it...

any tips on potato planting?
I actually had another ulterior motive. I needed the frames from the trap to finish a production hive!
Yes that is a sad state of affairs, but really hard to find the time to cut some wood....
I live near Atlanta and this is when the dearth usually starts.
I'm thinking to take down the traps I put up for a couple of reasons: not sure that I want to deal with a late season /...
Thank you very much for your reply Little John!
No, I get it. I know about the moveable frame legal thing. Also, I can't see me weaving straw, too time consuming.
I just had some curiosities about the thinking and the design as might...
could anyone recommend some good resources for learning more about skeps?
Hey, Rod, most of the paper is observation, not theory. The Q pheromones do affect the mite populations, based on his controlled experiments.
I was about to ask if anyone had an opinion, but then I thought, asking a beekeeper if they had an opinion is like asking a bee if it likes honey....
Has anyone else seen this thesis...
I'm wanting to do research on a hypothesis I have about honey bee pheromones and I was wondering if y'all could point me in the right direction. I'm looking for the research articles...
Hey, what exactly is the Ian Fleming approach to beekeeping?
Thanks for the reply Goose. I'm not sure what you mean by 3/8 strip.
I'm trying some different things with entrance size and shape this year. Hitherto, I used a slot entrance ala a typical Langstroth entrance.
This year I am drilling a single circular...
I'm going with the off topic.
As for nectar sources, I'm in a strange spot, but I suspect it is pretty good. I live in a less affluent suburb of Atlanta, just happen to have a random six acres of...
I was curious why you said honey wasn't on your radar?
Oh well, too late for me re: mono-body large frames. Does it matter whether foundationless or with foundation? Mine are foundationless.
This is an interesting idea. I think it is worth exploring.
I was curious what your experience with this was.
Well, no replies. That's okay. Posting made me think about it more. I don't know that I would even bother with a spring harvest because of the newness of the colonies. (can't assume that they...
Thanks for the encouragement John
thanks for the feedback, Greg.
