    I've had pretty good luck with a combination of Freeman Bottom boards, beetle blasters, and squishing whenever I see one.

    I've got my hives in a place where they get a lot of sunlight.

    I've...

    Re: BeeWeaver bees

    I like the folk who run both apiaries. Of course, their genetics are similar since the come from the same family roots, and they are all friendly and good natured.

    The apiaries are close to each...

    Re: Basic Noob Nuc question

  12. Re: Visible mite drop after 3rd round of Oxalic Acid vapor - go for 4th round?

    3 treatments only cover 14 days, not 21 if you are doing them weekly, and if that's your target.

    I did four treatments, and still had 91 mites, so I went for a 5th treatment. I'll check the bottom...

    My RWeaver All American bees are very gentle. I've had no problems mowing or weed-eating around the hives.

    I've only had them since April.

    Re: #8 Screen

    I got mine at a local lumber yard.

    They cut off the length I needed, and charged by the linear foot.

    Never forget about the mom & pop store. They need us to stay in business!
