    Re: Floating Hive Stand

    Conditions like that are problematic for bees. The question is how to make dry and warm hive? Parameters are: ventilation is only needed to replace CO2 for oxygen; and removing water from air by...

    Re: Heat treatment for varroa

    The treatment time is very long, but the good thing in that context is that only one treatment is needed (e.g. in July) and maybe another one in September. (later OAV)

    Re: 5 frame deep Nuc to Warré the easy? way

    Essentially:

    LR = productivity by high production
    Warre = productivity by low expenses

    Re: OAV - A discussion on temperature

    That 1% of formic acid shows that at least 2% of OA decomposes, so decomposition occurs and any new type vaporizer should be tested for efficiency. (IMO)
