    You are correct MSL. I was looking at their channel "home Page" and it doesn't list all uploads by date like other channels I watch, it lists "popular uploads" After clicking around, I found some...

    Re: Reusing hive

    If you lost them to mites, the equipment is fine to reuse. Check the frames for moth damage and mold. If its not too serious, a strong hive will be able to clean them up. If some are damaged, you...

    Re: Does anybody reverse/flip bottom boards?

    @JohnHill: I have some scrap PVC that I am going to make into bottom boards. I decided to go with 3/4 entrance and rout down the middle-ish of the 1x 1-3/4" scraps I have by ripping a 1x4" for the...

    Re: 18% ABV Sweet mead

    I only tried mead once and didn't care for it. But if you can get it dry and more like brandy, I would give it a go. J

    Thanks Jim. Any suggestions for sealing the edges before banding? Perhaps epoxy? I am familiar with PVC expansion and contraction issues. Rich, I prefer real wood too and have tried to keep my 1790...
  19. Re: Is it important to heat frames before extraction?

    Not illegal here, but not the best practice for sure. OP didn't say how far the apiary is from his heating room, so it could be his bees or neighborhood bees cleaning the frames JW. I put my wet...

    Sticky: Re: 2019 efb threads

    A good reason not to share honey among the hives or if you do, not to share it between apiaries. Also, feed sugar water to your caged/banked queens, not honey. Something I did before I knew better. J
  21. Re: Is it important to heat frames before extraction?

    Hi Fuzz. I am a little unclear about "I'm fine with potentially not extracting as much honey, because I'll be giving it all back to the bees anyway". I assume you are not actually giving all the...

    Re: Mowing rows

    All mowers I have had in the last 20 years anyway offer a mulching blade kit which consists of the blades and a plug you stick in the discharge. Just take the plug out if you don't want to mulch your...
