GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Re: Top Bar Hive swarmed
« Last post by gww on March 02, 2015, 11:38:31 PM »
Dang, just my luck, wrong place at the wrong time.  I have two hives and am going to try and fill them with swarms by trapping.  If I am unsuccessful this year, I am going to order early next year and fill my hives the traditional way.  Having a good time either way.
Cheers

THE 2ND AMENDMENT / Re: executive order ammo ban
« Last post by jvalentour on March 02, 2015, 11:01:24 PM »
This action is a result of Sig Sauer, Rock River and Bushmaster's introduction of a AR-15 handgun with a brace.  The ATF initially Ok'ed the weapon as a rifle and then changed it's decision to classifying it as a handgun.  Putting the green tip 5.56 in a handgun theoretically makes it capable of piercing police body armor.  (Remember, we are dealing with Obama and his ilk, facts don't matter).

All handguns that shoot ammo that can pierce body armor are not to made available to the general public (banned).  They might be available in other way, but I'm not sure.  Anyway, there is history of the armor piercing handgun ban, so this might stick.

Gotta give O and the boys credit.  They got a gun and ammo banned just by waiting for some manufacturer to get greedy.

When I saw marketing the of the AR Pistol my first reaction was that this is not going to end well.

DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Re: Hows your Honey this year SE Melbourne'rs
« Last post by Wombat2 on March 02, 2015, 10:12:56 PM »
Up in SE Qld we have had a good year generally but after our heavy rain and minor flooding with cyclone Marcia I am told it takes six months for the water to penetrate to the sub-soil then up the trees to the flowers so next spring will be a bumper year for honey so be prepared was the advice. Just extracted 26Kg from 10 frames off one hive so can't complain.

THE COFFEE HOUSE ((( SOCIAL - ROOM ))) / Re: Internet controls

I read an article about this. The author wasn't too worried about all of this. He said the Chinese have something like 100,000 people monitoring the internet and they still can't keep everything out. I can't say one way or the other.

GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Re: Mouse nest!!!!
« Last post by sawdstmakr on March 02, 2015, 09:54:10 PM »
Mice can only survive in a hive when the bees are in cluster due to very cold weather. When the bees break cluster, if the mouse is still in it, the bees will kill it. During the summer the mice will not move in. During winter prep, if you are in cold weather area, you add mouse guards to keep them out. All they are are metal plates with 3/8" holes in it that poi cover the entrance up with. It keeps the mice out.

I have been interested in the Golden Mean TBH for a long time but somehow haven't made the jump to it.  I do foundationless 10 frame all medium supers.  Crush and Strain.  It has worked out well for me.
