    Re: Instrumental Insemination Equipment

    Ok, now I think I got it. :)

    So the loop and wire is not used in insemination device, only the "golden pencil looking thing" is used as base of the actual hooks (ventral and sting)

    Re: Instrumental Insemination Equipment

    My "Kari Pirhonen" model has this Woyke style handle too, but what is that "loop, wire and golden looking pencil" used for? To hold the sting? Has anyone used that kind of system?

    Good marketing for vaporizers.

    Not much more.

    Just wanted to shout out.
  12. Re: How long to leave queen after mating?

    When the queen has capped brood is the earliest point, but longer time does only good for their acceptance. Frame cycling should be done when congestion is getting serious.

    one rip?

    one dato?


    Foam insulation

    Is that the right word to describe that material? If so; I´ll make the correction right away.

    I was looking at the ABJ January 2009 article, page52.

    Good reason MSL to question the usefulness of pin tests.

    From the table (40min35s) can be seen that in after six years of work (2013-2018) they have about 10 colonies( or even less?) which are above 75% SMR. That is important because they survive without...
