    Re: Oxalic Acid question

    Dekster, you may want to read the paper you linked again. OA was only tested as a dust mixed with powdered sugar and as a liquid mixed with glycerin. It was the glycerin/shop towel (ala Randy Oliver)...

    Re: Oxalic Acid question

    Lots of information on Beesource about OAV. Optimal treatment is every 4-5 days until mite drop dead count approaches zero. Some treat weekly as I do when following a program. Anything less than...

    Hmm, uh, parsnips? Whatever they are, they look skinny.

    Re: When is too late?

    Feed like crazy and they may have a chance. I have had mid-September swarms successfully overwinter here in Richmond, VA and you are definitely warmer than I am. I would be checking the hive she came...

    Re: Problems with cedar

    GG, I am thinking cut green, stickered, and allowed to dry, then milled (planed). Could be wrong.

    Re: Bulk tank wiring

    Now I am really confused. The wiring diagram is printed inside the cover. L1 is typically the black wire, L2 the white, and ground of course is green. On low voltage, wires 2 and 5 are attached to...

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    Deb, I filled a quart jar and then put in a hot water bath to warm it up. Poured straight from the quart jar into the minis. Only had a few drips which I got up with a wet towel. Probably should have...

    Re: Plastic hive top feeder insert source

    Pierco has a 10 pack of the Ceracell feeder inserts with center chimney and corner inserts for 18.49 each on sale. That's about $14 less than if you bought it with the shallow super frame.

    Re: Used equipment clean up question

    What Vance said, and yes, you have waaaaay too much time on your hands. After all that work, are you sure you would not have been better off buying new?

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    I learned early on that trying to get nucs started once our dearth starts here around mid June is an exercise in futility. But, I can start in late March/early April and have them in 10 frame boxes...

    Re: Essential Russian history for USA voters

    David, I tend to agree that the purpose of this thread is hard to discern. As a contrast between Russian and American ways of life, I can understand. But if the sole purpose is to just highlight some...
  12. Re: 11 out of 12 packages dead by 1-15 and still addicted. I must be crazy.

    I would be curious too. I am not TF, but am doing very limited treatments this year in an effort to weed out any hives that display no varroa resistance at all. So far I have lost 9 of 20 but am very...

    Re: Problems with cedar

    Honeyeater, I can fix all your Flow Hive problems with a single match...:D

    Cedar is rot resistant, which makes it ideal for beehives. As far as warping, that has more to do with the growth ring...

    Re: Brood comb

    Are you looking for 10 to 20 deep boxes worth (100-200 frames) or 10-20 total frames? I have a health certificate so could ship to you.

    Re: Wood prices

    Scooby2? I think Scooby is still somewhat shy of his 10,000 hives goal. I am the same age as you and would gladly go up to 50 hives if I were retired. Twenty production hives is all I can manage now...

    Re: Dead bees in top feeder but not drowned

    Got it. You have 10 frame deep hive bodies and I now get the outside of the tanks part. Best guess is that the lid does not fit tightly on the homemade shallow box and the bees are indeed attracted...

    Re: Bulk tank wiring

    I agree with Roland. It is a single phase 110/220 V motor currently wired for high (220) volts. Check the RPM, motors like this are often 1725 or 3400 RPM but could be purpose built for something...

    Re: Drones in mid October?

    Gary, You pretty much nailed the two scenarios I could think of. First, some healthy hives will maintain a small number of drones throughout milder winters. Not common, but not unheard of either....

    G3farms, you think like I do. Building a box around the comb was the option I was thinking about in my first response.

    Re: Dead bees in top feeder but not drowned

    Hi there lilouisianagal. Couple of things we are going to need to know. First, what brand and style of feeder are you using? A picture would help. Bees can drown in a feeder and then get cleaned up...
  23. Re: How do I move bees building comb on the outside of my house into a new beehive bo

    The best course of action is to contact a local beekeeper and explain what you would like to do. Texas Apiary Inspection Service lists 5 beekeepers that do cutouts in Calhoun County. Three of them...

    Grimsinner, you came to the right place to pose your question, but before anyone can answer, we need to know approximately where you live. In most of the US for example, it is too late to move bees...

    OT, that is the kind of positive story story I like. Good marketing on your part too. I suspect that regular consumption of pure raw honey can provide a SLIGHT improvement to a person's ability to...
