    Re: OAV in the winter?

    Winter OAVing seeks to accomplish two main things. When the hive is broodless (when all existing mites are exposed) AND when the bees are NOT in cluster (for better coverage of bees). For my area...
  2. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    I have 20 colonies.......some I got 2 full supers from......some I got zero honey from. I got a total of about 400 lbs. Selling honey @ $8 per pound ain't making me rich....only sweet. :D

    Re: Maximum Crop & Earthquake Proof Hive Stand

    Golly odfrank, next time you need something leveled, remember I'm just a phone call away. With all my experience leveling hives here in the rugged mountains of Kansas, I'd be glad to help out where...

    Re: Provap 110 and top bar hive

    I drilled the hole at a slight upward angle so that the vap devise tilts back just a bit so it doesn't contact the sidewall. It won't hang there without holding on to it. Drill several holes at...

    Re: Global Warming

    I totally agree with this ^^^. "My" world will end when I die...which makes me a 'short-timer'.

    Re: Provap 110 and top bar hive

    Of my 20 hives, I only have two top bar hives and they both get treated through a quarter inch hole in the slanted wall......just like the langs......nothing special required for me.
  12. Re: For storing used boxes would cedar ball work as good as Moth balls?

    Re: Global Warming

    I'm done too. It was fun while it lasted, but it appears 'they' are just as hard-headed & stubborn as we are. If we don't believe in it passionately, it ain't worth believing in. :lookout:

    Have you consulted the bees about this endeavor? My bees would like less hours per week to work with vacation time figured in. They also want restrictions on hive beetles & wax moth and where they...

    I was only two yrs. old at the time, so I don't recall the real price, but I'll guess $2.29 per package.
