    Well "The Bee Health Guru: Helping Beekeepers Keep Healthy Bees. A smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what is wrong with them!" seems pretty clear. Perhaps they should have said "after...
  2. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    You certainly are an overly positive dispostion on this. If everyone did not fork over their money for the use of this then i would agree its a big science project. but that is not what happened. ...

    Refractometer Sample question

    I've never felt i needed a refractometer before this year as i've always been able to wait for the frames to be capped. This year some hives went on a capping strike. waited 3 weeks and no new...

    Re: What recourse do I have?

    If you have a fenced in back yard i'd add another enclosure of 6 foot fence and close them in totally. Not seen and not an issue. However whoever complained already will continue to. So to enjoy...

    Re: Mouse Guard and Entrance Reducer for Winter

    I use these. Found getting them to work required trimming the bottom board sides if they protruded further out then the box. I spray painted them when i got them. Not cheap but good quality. Nice...

  10. Re: Crowdfunded Smart hive for helping bees, beekeepers, and bee researchers

    That's my point with this and the other one. Hate to see a lot of new keepers waste money on pipe dreams and especially to have beesource be ravaged by shysters trying to tap into caring people's...
  11. Re: Crowdfunded Smart hive for helping bees, beekeepers, and bee researchers

    this new hive they claim they have built has the sensors built into the hive. i picture these physically in the hive not as you described. of course they are short on any relevant details so we won't...
  12. Re: Crowdfunded Smart hive for helping bees, beekeepers, and bee researchers

    as i said before on the other thread for a kickstarter......a fool and his money are soon parted.
    If he has a prototype working why is he now asking for what we as beekeepers want?
    Any permanent...
  13. Re: Solar Wax Melter - 1 or 2 Panes of Glass and Why?

    i used 1 pane for this reason. used old storm window. 2 panes stop heat better then 1. most home windows are at least 3 for this reason. not sure what another pane would do that was helpful.

    i struggle with this issue. everyone says they will move the honey up but some hives just don't. Have had several swarms this year where there was 3 mostly empty but drawn supers above and they...

    Re: Heating up crystallized honey

    worry more about the quality of the honey that you start with. overheating it will have some affects. but you don't have to do it that way. for small unlabled amounts you can put it at 110 or use a...
  17. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    sounds like you are making excuses for its failure. Heck i can tell when one is queenless by the sound this miracle should definitely be able to.

    figured for as many believers there were here...

    Re: 2:1 cooking and refractometer

    umm no. good way to learn to use one though. just mix it close by weight and call it a day.
  19. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    well lets see how this thing does. interested what it says for those that parted with the cash. hopefully some experienced beeks can compare it to what is really happening and give a report.

    Re: Beehive security question

    Worry about what you can control. You can stick some stockade fence around 3 sides if you want to have nobody see them. Yea some punks could go and kick them over. they could do a lot of things. ...

  24. Re: OA vaporization is probably safe with honey supers - here's my calculations

    An actual scientific lab test will verify your findings if you can find one. I suspect, depending on where the honey is located in the hive, will also change the amounts.

    good point. I should have added "if found healthy". I was picturing just a queen that isn't laying. The one hive i had EF on last year and quaretined rebounded after treatment, packed on 2 supers...
