    Re: Putting a shallow supper below deep?

    Some use slatted rack. Some put a shim.

    I thought there was a commercial guy on here who winters in a single deep with an empty below it, a deep.

    Re: What have you found to be the best way to

    How far will the Bee quick push the bees?
    Will it push them out of 4 mediums above brood nest? How many deeps?
    Is there a minimum amount of supers? donít want the bees to be pushed out the door!...
  3. Re: Running single deep and medium for brood

    People run all mediums and winter their bees. Why wouldnít the bees be able to move...

    Re: hive inspection

    Once a week is about right for inspection intervals. How they doing? Probably about time to move them to full size equipment.

    Re: Tiny Ants in Nuc

    Yes you can put boric acid down. I mix with granulated sugar and place inside a jar on its side, under the hive. Put a lid that bees canít pass through if you like.

    Had a similar issue with Wasps building nest on my covered porch. Took a small paper bag and expanded it. Tied off the top and hung in the corner of porch. Guess the wasps think this is a nest...

    Temp was upper 50s F, ash like consistency and the battery just came off the charger. Battery is old, will check output.

    Thank you for the info and links. Still have some questions that only my employer can answer.

    The lower premiums and tax deferral make the HSA very appealing.

    Health saver account or HSA is different than the flexible spending account.

    Are you happy with it?

    Any websites with good information about it out there??

    Gww
    To test or not is completely up to you, just like treating. My thought is why not? Even if you are not planning on doing anything, if they die you will have an idea of why they died.

    Don't...
  17. Re: poor management practices: personal convictions of the beekeeper?

    Those that advocate for TF, do you check for mites at all?
    Do you really just wait for the bees to die and say, well guess they didn't have the right stuff!

  21. Re: Treatment-Free Beekeeping in Norway scientifically studied

    Agree. So what is then? Bees sense of smell must be extreme to smell through wax and find the mites in a cell, VSH. Smell the mite on a fellow bee inside a dark cavity and groom it off.

  22. Re: Treatment-Free Beekeeping in Norway scientifically studied

    Both groups showed VSH and grooming!
    Somehow the bees were preventing the mites from reproducing. Female mites smell different maybe??
