  1. Re: questions and theories on how OA kills mites

    I like that you are thinking outside of the (bee) box. The problem I see is that in grooming, most of the mites survive and are killed when they drop onto the oil coated sticky board. With OAV, the...

    Re: infused honey

    A friend of mine just returned from Scotland and brought me a bottle of a scotch/ honey blend. It is more like a liqueur at 19.8% alc. by volume (about 40 proof). Have not tried it yet.

    Re: What are your hobbies?

    When I was 9 years old, my dad was a member of the auxiliary police force in Ft. Lauderdale. We would go to the range when it was not being used and sift bullets from the backstop. Afterwards we...

    Re: My first Melomel - elderberry mead

    "Get at least a wine/beer/champagne yeast."

    Oh, I will. In my defense, the wine making was back in 1975 and I was 15 at the time, using a recipe that was written on an index card. My solution to...

    Re: Kickstarter-related posts

    I will be discussing with the other moderators what the Beesource policy on Kickstarter projects will be going forward. For now, let's keep it low key. Beesource is not really the place to be...
  9. Re: Methods for dissuading more beekeepers in a particular location?

    I hope you encouraged them to attend beekeeping classes and offered to sell them some bees this Spring. A few extra hives nearby will not have an adverse imapct on your operation unless they decide...

    Re: Band heater vaporizer.

    Most of us that are OA only give the bees a treatment around the end of November, Thanksgiving weekend if you will, and then again at Christmas. Seems to work pretty well for going into Spring with a...

    Re: Wax Moths

    Stick the supers back on your hives for a few days. The bees should clean them out. They would probably appreciate the added protein.

    Re: Problem with oxalic acid wand

    Just like with jumping a car battery, I would suspect you had a bad connection at the battery terminals that caused this problem. Can't think of anything else besides a wiring problem with the wand....

    Loghouse, there is a History of Beekeeping forum already.

    Fell off the tightrope on that one huh? I tried to pick an example that I thought even the most hard core environmentalist would find difficult to accept.

    Beeks with light hives should have already switched in my area. Most of my hives are already at or near desired winter weight. Because it has been so dry, I chose to stay on the 1:1 hoping that the...

    To all. The issue of global warming, or more accurately, man-made global warming, and what many believe, is closely tied to their political affiliation. However, the rules of this forum specifically...

    Re: Cost of 3# package of bees in 1949

    I suspect supply and demand pushed prices down shortly after the end of the war. Hive numbers were at all time highs and now sugar was no longer being rationed. Couple that with a relatively large...
