    Re: The Covid 19 Thread

    Can't see as how a polling location could be any busier than the local Walmart on the first of the month.

    Re: The state of United States

    Yeah, I would have thought Michelle O would have been a better choice as running mate if they were serious about trying to win the election. Heard on the news today that Fauxcahontas (Sen. Elizabeth...

    Re: fermented honey?

    Last year's honey harvest had a high moisture content, just over 19%. I never saw any bubbles or anything like that, but the jars did pop a little when opened, indicating the pressure had built up a...

    Re: The state of United States

    GG, it's a sucker bet, don't do it! I'd say it's even money until after the convention. Still a chance that they will veiw former VP Biden as damaged goods and nominate Hillary instead.
  6. Re: A couple of honey harvesting questions- NOOB

    B1rd, this year I had a lot of cappings mixed with honey that I mashed up into the same type of gruel that you described. I let it sit for a day to drain in my incubator set at 100 degrees. The back...

    Larry, I would love to see a picture. Just happen to have an empty beer keg or two floating around.

    Re: The Covid 19 Thread

    Alex, Virginia has open primaries. This means that I can vote for the democratic candidate LEAST likely to win a general election. This year it was hard to decide, there were so many. News out today,...

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    GG, the ProVap has a 3/16" tube so a 1/4" hole works well. It is small enough that robbers do not seek it out. Even still, some bees do attempt to use it as an entrance. :(

    I do not close off the...

    Welcome to the age of enlightenment. Beekeeping is fun, most of the time, but it is hard work.

    Re: I need recommendations for an extractor

    Maxant is the Cadillac of the industry. You can't go wrong if the price is right. Do you need a 30 frame extactor? I have 20 hivs and use a Maxant 3100P 9-frame (6 medium radially) extractor.

    Re: Bee watering station

    My bee watering station is a leaky garden hose set on some concrete pavers. The bird bath with rocks in it that I have in the apiary works but needs constant refilling. The hose, I can just leave.

    Re: Is anybody else having a hard season?

    Lee, I can second that over here on the East Coast, things went pretty well. I had to start feeding in June also, but that is typical for my area. My 20 hives produced about 360# of tulip poplar...

    Re: Honey water percentages

    My refractometer has a separate scale for moisture percentage. It is not the same as the Brix scale.

    Re: Honey water percentages

    Omega, last year my capped honey tested out at 19.8%, this year it is around 17%. I have not tested all the buckets yet. I guess some years are like that. I covered a lot of the mason jars from last...

    Re: Which inverter do you use for OAV?

    I recently treated six hives with one of Johno's EasyVaps using the 400 watt inverter built into my Toyota 4Runner. Worked perfectly.

    Re: The Covid 19 Thread

    I concede that it could be for both of their benefits. But when my wife goes into a room to care for a patient that is full contact precaution, the suit, gloves, and mask are to protect her alone.

    Funny how the narrative has changed. Perhaps doctors should start masking the patients and then they can operate without their glasses fogging up? A mask is PPE. It is designed and intended to...

    I stand with Kamon on this. I am out in the country and masks are worn by maybe 50% of the people. I wear a mask in stores that have their own little version of the Gestapo minding the door, but...

    LJ is spot on with this advice. I do not have TBHs, but do use foundationless frames. It is important to check new bars as they are being drawn out for straightness before the bees get too far along....

    Re: Sugar Purchase

    I just googled the Walmart in Lake Zurich. They have the Great Value brand pure cane at the same price as my local store for the 10# bags. The 25# bags are $8.88 each.
