    Re: Yellow Jacket Bait Stations

    Re: Double nuc manufacturers?

    Give Valley Bee Supply a call- they’ve done some custom work for me.

    Shipping is expensive- if you buy enough to ship freight it gets cheaper.

  6. Re: My first two hives of 10,000 have been ordered :)

    Reread Harry Vanderpool’s post. The best thing you can do is start at a slow steady pace. You don’t even have the infrastructure to support 20 hives no less a thousand. You have not idea what it is...
  7. Re: My first two hives of 10,000 have been ordered :)

    Below is an outdated but useful webpage. I would multiply the costs times 3 as costs have increased. To go into a 10,000 hive operation, you should plan to invest a ton of money.

  8. Re: My first two hives of 10,000 have been ordered :)

    I think your setup for failure. Buying lots of hives is easy. Keeping them alive is another story. There is a huge learning curve in beekeeping.
  9. Re: Approximate time from installing a nuc to splitting

    Given your climate- I would not split your hive until next spring.

    Re: New beek alive strips to new packages

    I would install your package bees and worry about mites later.

    Re: Mann Lake ProVent Jackets hoods awkward ?

    I’ve been using the Provent for a while. The hood is awkward. I’ve started wearing a ventilated helmet under it and I like it a lot better.

    Re: Total loss almonds

    Went right to winter as the bloom got going. Might be a bad year for the almond growers.

    Re: CA bee yards on state parks

    Iím pretty certain state parks are not open Bee yards. BLM land does have some allotments. Keep in mind BLM is open for all types of land use including recreation. That means all kinds of people will...

    Re: Boom for a Loader

    Thanks Oldtimer- I hadn’t thought about the brakes or leveling. An interesting note- You can buy the boom for the Avant in Australia.
