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

    Just another troll, and it got the reaction the troll was looking for.

    Please folks, stop feeding the trolls. Site has gone downhill tremendously over the last few years, if you feed the trolls...
  2. Re: Oxalic acid is harmless - I don't bother removing honey supers any longer.

    Seems that way. No measurements, no control, just a declaration after a totally random one time test. Yep, that's 'good science' all righty. Do you even know what you were trying to measure ?

    Re: Varroa Easy Check- Do you use it?

    And therein lies the key metric, how much do you value your time? 4 hours a dozen times is 48 hours spent treating 50 colonies, so close enough to call it an hour per colony. So it depends now on...
  4. Re: Transfer bees and frames to new hive? Or wait for new nucc or split?

    The only reason to use an excluder, is to keep the queen out of the honey super. The most common reason for that, is to make it easier when pulling honey, just pull the boxes. Another reason, keep...

    Re: Queen Selection

    Albert is not the only Canadian breeder that uses a southern USA production environment to produce queens AFTER selections have been made in the northern stock. It's typical to take queens south in...

    Re: Learning Grafting

    The thing to keep in mind about the one I have, it's cheap, as in inexpensive to purchase, poor quality build, and just all around 'cheap'. BUT, it's a single use thing I have on the shelf, comes...

    Re: Learning Grafting

    I've got essentially the same unit, found it in a christmas stocking a couple years ago. Prior to that arriving, my best round was getting 8 out of 15. First time I used it, I got 13 out of 15.
  8. Re: returning wet supers after extracting; how to avoid robbing frenzy?

    Interesting, different folks with differing experiences.

    Our experience, even with dry supers, outside storage was a total failure. First year we moved onto this property we had no place to store...
  9. Re: returning wet supers after extracting; how to avoid robbing frenzy?

    I disagree. If the bees were smarter than you, they wouldn't have moved to Alberta, it's to cold for people, never mind honeybees over there on the wrong side of the rockies.... :)
  10. Re: returning wet supers after extracting; how to avoid robbing frenzy?

    If the boxes are left unprotected, then the bees will first get the honey, then the wax moth will arrive. We have a small warm room where the supers go before extraction, it's bee proof. We stack...
  11. Re: returning wet supers after extracting; how to avoid robbing frenzy?

    I used to worry about getting supers 'cleaned' before winter, but no more. We stack em up in storage as wet frames, then they go on the following season over the excluder still smelling like wet...

    Re: Preparing honey bottles

    Maybe different in your part of the world, but in ours, canning jars need to be sterilized before use, it's assumed they will get that during the canning process so they done come that way. Honey...

    I have one of those from Joerg. works as expected, no complaints.
  16. Re: Quality Queen Cells with Small Nuc as Cell Starter?

    For a number of years I felt we were selecting for 'reduced swarming'. Any colony where we found cells would be re-queened from the stock that was not producing swarm cells. If it was to early for...

    If you heat OA up to the breakdown temperature it will break down, wether you say so or not, it will.

    Re: OAV Dosage - Legal Dose Not Enough

    Give it a try, come back in 3 years and let us know how it went.
  21. Re: OMG !!!! Queens , Queens and more Queens !!!

    The important clue is in the brood, do you see eggs, and if so, are they in a nice tight pattern ? With two or three queens emerging like that, if the intent was to swarm I would think the swarm...

    The queen is not viable. Wether it's a drone laying queen or laying workers is of no consequence at this point. It's been 3 weeks, there is no capped worker brood and you are seeing occasional...

  24. Re: If I add an upper entrance above my QE will the bees fill the honey supers faster

    Well actually, we do laugh when folks talk about 'winter' in any of the southern states.
