    Re: Global Warming

    Bet we can find common ground here;

    LIHEAP a federal program that helps the low income stay in their homes. Been going on for 20-30 ? years. Buys oil to help out, does not fund better windows,...

    Re: Global Warming

    We do not have to agree on the cause of Global warming to find some common ground. Remember the 70's gas lines. Do we want to be an energy vulnerable economy? Is energy source diversity a sound goal?...
  3. Re: Should I buy an established hive in Oct in Upstate NY

    What's the law in NY? Is an inspection by the State inspector required prior to all bee sales?

  7. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    5. Not all bees are loyal to their hive in my personal subjective opinion. When the home hive's fait is set, there are those bees that join up with the victors. That is the method of transfer that is...
  8. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    Certainly would fit the mite bomb situation and some mites certainly would be available to hop on the next robber ride. Most, not under cap, would depart with the abscond.

    Wonder how many capped...
  9. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    The mite leaving the bee to wait is not demonstrated directly as far as I know. Indirectly in the 2nd link is discussion of a mite being found on a shipment of cut flowers and discussion of the mite...

    The ready to produce evidence is only lurking in the back corners of my mind as something I read. That is a rather cluttered space.
  13. Re: This is getting ridiculous (Varroa and OAV treatment)

    I've always been a little perplexed by the robbing out a dying mite bomb theory. Two things are missing from the telling (or hearing) of the tale. Robbing is a relatively short lived event, it is...
  14. Re: Is this robbing in progress? Anything to do?

    When in doubt close it down. Narrow is not going to hurt anything.
    Those robbers are going to try the next hive in line. Sometimes they will settle for dry sugar as bait in a empty body a little bit...

    Re: Weighing Beehives-Winter Weight

    6 penny =.12 inch (without CNC control)
    2 mm =.0787 inch

    Guess an old nail and a hammer is a little bigger hole.

    Re: Mouse Guard and Entrance Reducer for Winter

    Disturbed a mouse out of an empty nuc, she ran full speed through the 3/8 gap and into another empty nuc with six good sized babies hanging onto her teats. Didn't even slow down.

    Well considering it was condensing on my porch roof as well it was extreme. Saw snow fog like that more in the sixties, saw cold like that more in the sixties as well. Not something I would expect...

    Re: Mountain Camp - proactive or reactive?

    No, It means you do not have a good picture of snow fog off the water and how far and fast the temp swing can be off the water.

    Re: Mountain Camp - proactive or reactive?

    I've killed nucs with MC. Very cold for along stretch, sudden warm up with wind off the water making snow fog that turned the sugar into a dripping mess. Happens.

    Re: Add a queen or start over in 2020?

    Welcome and visit often.
    No chance. After becoming known as a weak hive, double no chance.

    Hope you have time to make sure your other hives do not become the next victims.

    Re: Cover Crops and how close to hive???

    They will work clover inches from a hive. Maybe they flew a mile to get there, maybe a foot, that I do not know. The bees are thicker closer to the hives than farther away when the clover is thick.
