how many baskets do you have and how much?
Looking for replacement baskets for the owens bee vac. Anyone know where I can find them in stock?
Ordered a pallet of supers in 2016, delivered in 2017. 10% were junk, with ears not matching up. Others I know who ordered pallet quantity at the same time had the same issues. Hopefully this is...
Check the label on the OA. It will tell you how to apply it as a pesticide. Any other means of application is off label and illegal.
Considering I wanted to use virgins and not cells, this was not possible. Thanks.
I introduced 14 virgins a week ago. Had 6 successful. The virgins were 4 days old. The colonies were queenless for 1-3 days prior. Virgin was released directly in top box. I put the queen cell in at...
I am looking at one that is well taken care of. The tank portion is stainless, the basket will need cam cote. They are asking $1200. It does work. Is this a reasonable price? It is 45 frames as well.
Grainger sells this pump for just under $300
Do not use water unless you want it to ferment and be watery. There is nothing you can add and maintain the integrity of honey. I am assuming you are making a waterfall type device for people to dip...
I use a Ryobi inverter generator.
An older version of this, that I already had:...
As a beekeeper in an area of high Africanization, I cannot agree more with this!!
Enough are that it is folly to attempt to keep them.
Welcome, there is a Brazoria county beekeepers group that is fairly active and meets monthly.
The closest bee supply house I know of is in...
The location is 3 hours away, I have a full time job. Someone else is making the virgins for me and I will not be able to get them sooner. I will be dropping a trailer off on a very strong flow....
Ideally, yes, id like to release into queenright colonies. However it is sounding like that will be a waste. I will release into QR only if I cannot find the queens to kill.
So you had 7 accepted to be able to mate? have you checked for success since then?
Yeah, its just being wasted at the moment. When the natural pollen goes away, if they need it, then open feed it and it will be readily taken.
Wholesale or for a few nucs? If wholesale you can expect $25/frame, perhaps a little less if you buy enough. If only for a few nucs, you probably cannot find anyone willing to sell them, so expect to...
I use advantek to make migratory tops, I only use butt joints and screws.
Read it, yup, you cannot own what you cannot posses. You cannot posses what you do not have access to. Trespass is still illegal, and can easily get you shot.
Not having read it yet, if you step on my property to capture a swarm, you will not be walking off...
