Have you considered putting beehives indoors somewhere?

No worries in doing that, but whenever you want to get into the bottom hive you'll have to move the entire top hive off... that can be upwards of 100kg.

DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Hive colony on top of another hive colony ?
« Last post by dalewills on September 29, 2016, 02:07:01 AM »
Hi guys,

Is it possible to put a hive colony on top of another hive colony? I am very tight for space on my property where I house my hives and am wondering what the possibility is of a double decker hive scenario.

I know its not probably ideal but just wondering everyone's thought.

G'day Folks,

I was hoping to get everybody's thoughts on the best type of extractor - I'm ideally hoping to source an 8 or 12 frame electric extractor - I've used both radial and tangential units before. My opinion is that tangential gets a greater amount of honey out of the frames, but requires reversing of the frames, and radial doesn't require flipping of the frames but doesn't get as complete an extraction due to the way the honey comes out of the frames with some going to the wall but some also hitting the frame next to it. What's others experiences? Is there a hybrid where you can get the benefits of a tangential with the reversibility of a radial? Can anyone recommend a good supplier - I'm in Australia but am happy to consider importing something.

Cheers

DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Re: What's flowering: Victoria

I'll have a 10kg bucket then thanks. Or maybe I bath her in it.
Victoria s desert country looks great. Flower everywhere. Even if people don't put bees up that way, it's well worth a trip. Grab your swag and go have a look.

What's flowering up there? I'm dying to see pictures! lol and know of anybody that wouldn't mind having a few hives on their land toward the end of the year (assuming/hoping there's something flowering then)

Thanks guys. I will add a super, and check for queen cells at the same time. I'll also take off the capped honey. The flow is crazy I can barely keep up with how fast they're all growing

Very sad problem going on these days and no one is paying attention to the real world.
>>> 
>>>       A Media Double Standard

>>> Hello. Don?t recognize me? That?s OK; I Understand.  My name was Antonio West. I was the child who was shot in the face
>>> at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot.
>>> I think my murder and my mommy?s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.
>>> 
>>> A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty...
>>> too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn?t have the money they demanded.
>>> See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn?t ruled a ?hate crime?.
>>> 
>>> Oh, and President NObama didn?t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder. He couldn?t have any children
>>> who could possibly look like me - so why should he care?
>>> 
>>> I?m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation's history, but the media didn?t care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.
>>> 
>>> There isn?t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton (Dullton), because if there was he would be branded a ?racist?.
>>> So no one?s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ?justice? for me. There?s no ?White Panther? party,
>>> either, to put a bounty on the lives of the two black teens who murdered me.
>>> 
>>> I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller ?
>>> I no longer have my life.  Isn?t this a great country?
>>> 
>>> So while you?re out seeking ?justice for Trayvon? and Michael Brown, please remember to seek ?justice? for me.
>>> Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.
>>> I won?t hold my breath, I don?t have to anymore.

REQUEENING & RAISING NEW QUEENS / Requeening for fall
« Last post by heidi.k.cummins on September 28, 2016, 10:43:21 PM »
One of my colonies has a poor quality queen. I would like to requeen and I am looking for recommendations for a reputable apiary that has queens available at the moment. Thanks.
