    Re: Best Feeder (top, 8F)

    Just buy the Mann Lake eight frame top feeder. Have over a dozen and have used for years, easy to fill, no bees drown, no robbing. Might seem costly but you get a great product that will last and...
  2. Re: OA vaporization is probably safe with honey supers - here's my calculations

    Possibly a higher concentration, key word possibly as so far no one has shown what the amounts before, after treatment, in the honey.
  3. Re: OA vaporization is probably safe with honey supers - here's my calculations

    I could not find that label anywhere on my can of Savogran Wood Bleach.
  4. Re: OA Vaporization instead of a "traditional" mite counts

    Never do a "traditional" mite count as I just do an OAV treatment series in February, again in August and a single treatment in December.

    Re: What have you found to be the best way to

    Some of the products are just nasty! Bee Quick is not, has a nice smell and smell does not last very long. Helped a fellow in Columbus one year and had to throw my clothes away after using what he...

    Re: What have you found to be the best way to

    Yes Sir, bee escapes will work and sound like what you enjoy. For us old folks, 67 and my buddy 71, having 73 hives (this year) with two or three supers each just to much lifting and shifting to...

    Re: What have you found to be the best way to

    Re: Laying worker question

    Agree. You can save a hive, sometimes, but it is just not worth the time, effort,and resources. No need to haul the miles away, though. Around the corner of the house will work just fine.

  23. Re: seeking opinions about returning wet supers to hives after extracting

    This is not true. You might want to do a bit more research. Below is a couple of links you might want to read. Also from personnel experience I have seen the damage they wax moths can do to frames...
  24. Re: seeking opinions about returning wet supers to hives after extracting

    Do you have any wax moths and SHB in your area? Have to take extra precautions here to keep both out of the frames before and during storing.
