    Re: Incubator temperature

    I usually run my incubator at 94 degrees and haven't had any problems. I've used everything from a nuc box with light bulbs as the heat source (be sure the cells aren't directly lit by the bulbs or...

    Re: Oxalic Vaporizing & Honey Harvest...

    The label says it must be used without honey supers on. I suspect either the applicant for the pesticide didn't do testing with honey supers on, or testing was done and some trace was found (I'm...

    Re: Bee Guards for Hummingbird Feeders

    I had a neighbor to one of my bee yards complain about bees in her hummingbird feeders. She wasn't really upset, but wanted to know if I had any suggestions. Not knowing much about feeders I did a...
  4. Re: Screened bottom board: Enough ventilation for moving hives?

    I suppose it depends on how hot it is where you are at and how long your trip is. I've had good luck moving at night (or just before dawn) with just the screened bottom board as ventillation. Of...

    Re: Ebay extractors under $200?

    If at all possible, I'd borrow or rent one for a few years until you can afford a good one. I've seen a couple of the cheap ones selling under 200, and they are cheaply. Metal ones sound as thing...

    Re: Incubator queens?

    I typically put the cells in a california cage and place them in a queenless hive just before they emerge (if I'm not just placing the cells in nucs). THey tend to take care of them better, though...

    Re: Supplements just for queen rearing

    I've never seen any specifically marketed towards queen rearing. But I have found feeding protein patties does help ensure they produce a lot of royal jelly and I've been feeding half a patty every...

    Re: Making splits with caged queens

    Candy can be a very imperfect timing mechanism for releasing a queen. They can sometimes get though it in a less than a day, and sometimes never quite get though it. My perfered method is to not...

    Re: Waterproof labels

    My experience is while they hold up better you always get a water mark on the jar/label, etc. and the adheasive can sometimes be a problem. (It can be much worse depending on your water).

    Re: Split

    You can, though the bees will be confused for awhile. You might be best turning the hive around, but shift the boxes so there is a small entrance (enough for 1 bee) in the back so they can get in...

    Re: OA Dribble Question

    You actually aren't suppose to treat with OA honey supers on (by any method currently). (https://www3.epa.gov/pesticides/chem_search/ppls/091266-00001-20151013.pdf) So I would either remove the...

    Re: Hello from Michigan!

    Yes, it is very common for mites to be in packages. We actually did an oxalic acid dribble on our newly installed packages this year and they dropped as many as 20+ mites in a 24 hour period. ...

    Re: Question on using Apiguard

    I would say yes. Put it between the two boxes. It needs to be in the brood area, and there needs to be room above it for disbursal of the fumes (ie. putting inner cover directly over it could be...
  15. Re: OA Source: Brushy Mountain still the only approved source?

    Technically unless it's actually labeled for pesticide use (ie the brushy mountain packaging), it's not legal. That said there is plenty of oxaclic acid available from many sources, some labeled as...

    Re: 6 Frame Nuc

    No reason why not other than equipment may not be readily available. But if you are building your own, you can do any size you want.

    I should note that the styrofoam nucs by Superior Bee and...

    Re: portable hive tags

    I second the ear tags. They hold up very well in the weather (longer than the bottom boards I attach them to). In small quantities you can get some a Tractor Supply, but if you use a lot you can...

    Re: Incubator and humidity

    Excellent information. I've never found a good resource as to the 'right' humidity.

    I generally figured that higher was better, but probably should be limited to around 60% because in a hive, too...

    Re: Asian hornet trap?

    I can't comment on the asian hornet bottom boards, but I'd expect they work based on the fact the asian hornet is so much bigger than the honey bee.

    Typically you just reduce the entrance of your...

    Re: What sliding compound miter saw should I buy?

    I've had the Dewalt 12" compound sliding miter saw for years. Lots of heavy use and it's holding up well. Only complaint is that the power cord casing is cracking where it enters the saw (Had...
