THE COFFEE HOUSE ((( SOCIAL - ROOM ))) / Re: 1st debate.
« Last post by GSF on September 30, 2016, 08:16:37 AM »
I am a Trump supporter, didn't see the debate, don't like Hillary. However, prior to the debate I was thinking Hillary may have the chance to come out on top because I would think she's had decades of public speaking and debating compared to Trump who's probably always had the last word.

I can see how folks wouldn't want to vote for Trump but I can't see how anyone with walking around sense could see her as what's best for America.

GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Re: Cut out/ Bee removal
« Last post by paus on September 30, 2016, 08:15:26 AM »
I did one like this but from inside brick veneer, solid wood walls in and outside. I got a good size nuc  and good winter resources.  Lost 66 percent of the bees because of the brick space and the bees  being inside I could not get them to go to hive, they wanted out of the house. yes I would do it again today, the bees had to go one way or another, I ENJOY cutouts.  Don't get in a hurry and out think the bees,  Good luck HA HA.

Im interested in finding the drone congregation area or areas near me.

The type of site you're looking for is typically a flat area of land (cricket pitch, car park, open field, that kind of thing) adjacent to tall 'spiky' objects (relative to the immediate topogrpahy), such as poplar trees, church steeples, wind turbines, and so forth.

Good luck - keep us posted ...

Could be useful if you described what facilities you have on your site ...

Any sheds, flat-roof buildings, or trees etc ?  Hives don't have to be placed on the ground, although that's obviously the ideal place if possible.

You can buy one of those cameras on a flexable tube. You can then remove a piece of trim, drill a 1/2" or 3/4" hole where the trim was and verify where they are before you start cutting. You can also just drill a hole and plug it back up with caulking.
I had one that when I inserted the probe through the outside wall, all I saw was insulation. I went inside and removed the crown molding drilled the hole and found that they were in the ceiling behind the insulation. I then went upstairs and did the removal through the floor.

Are you able to place them back to back?

Mick
The answer is yes but I alway like to work the hives from the back. You could work on them from the side.
What I recommend you do is leave enough space between the hives so that you can walk/work between them.
When I take my bees to the farm on my trailer I have the hives back to back during transport for strapping them down and then I separate them. I move each hive to the edge of the trailer so that I can walk between them and clean out the oil trays.

If you use the Internet Archive:
http://web.archive.org/web/20160104223351/http://robo.bushkillfarms.com/beekeeping/patents/
you can then identify the Patent number.  But - you'll then need to source that Patent from it's number via Google 'Patents' or the USPO, as it appears that the Internet Archive hasn't stored any .pdf's from the above webpage.

I've just noticed that "Beekeeping Patents from the Past and Present" which used to be viewable from HoneyMoonApiaries.com is also no longer available.  Bummer.  I squirrelled away 41 of the 72 pages from that site (only those I was interested in)  back in 2012, which I'll try and make available for viewing over the winter - but again, you'll need to source the actual Patent .pdf from it's number as mentioned above, as direct links from those pages no longer work - they are only good for the Patent number itself and a brief description of each Patent.  Wish I'd saved all 72 pages now ...

BTW - if anyone wants those 41 pages (as a 150k .zip file), just drop me a PM.

>The problem is when the top one grows, you will need a ladder to work it unless you build a stand next to it to stand on.

Yes, that's the other problem.  I've had to put supers on with a ladder when they were single stacks...
How do you get them off!
