    I actually had another ulterior motive. I needed the frames from the trap to finish a production hive!

    dearth - take 'em down?

    Hi, all,

    I live near Atlanta and this is when the dearth usually starts.

    I'm thinking to take down the traps I put up for a couple of reasons: not sure that I want to deal with a late season /...

    Thank you very much for your reply Little John!
  4. Re: Skeps - good resources to learn more about em?

    No, I get it. I know about the moveable frame legal thing. Also, I can't see me weaving straw, too time consuming.

    I just had some curiosities about the thinking and the design as might...

  6. Re: opinion on restricted ventilation and optimizing queen pheromone

    Hey, Rod, most of the paper is observation, not theory. The Q pheromones do affect the mite populations, based on his controlled experiments.
  7. opinion on restricted ventilation and optimizing queen pheromone

    Dear all,

    I was about to ask if anyone had an opinion, but then I thought, asking a beekeeper if they had an opinion is like asking a bee if it likes honey....

    Has anyone else seen this thesis...

    Hi, all,

    Re: different size deep horizontal hives

    I'm going with the off topic.
    As for nectar sources, I'm in a strange spot, but I suspect it is pretty good. I live in a less affluent suburb of Atlanta, just happen to have a random six acres of...

    Re: different size deep horizontal hives

    Re: Spring harvest (2020)

    Well, no replies. That's okay. Posting made me think about it more. I don't know that I would even bother with a spring harvest because of the newness of the colonies. (can't assume that they...

    Re: Newby with Horizontal Hive Build

    Hi, Doc,

    I installed two nucs into a similar situation, but I can see that I will run into some of the issues mentioned by other posts on this thread.

    I apologize...

    Spring harvest (2020)

    Hi, y'all,

    This year I installed two packages, one swarm, and I bought two nucs. I have no plans to harvest any honey this fall because the colonies are just getting started.
