COMPUTER TECH HELP FORUM / New Messages Question
« Last post by crmauch on Today at 10:12:58 AM »
A number of other forums I've been on have a "Read First Unread" link on their threads.  (I.E. When you read a topic that you've looked at before, there's a link that will take you to the first message in the thread that you haven't looked at before).

Does such a functionality exist on Beemaster?  If so where is it or how do I activate it?

Thanks.

Well this puts a different slant on things ... 100% varroa kill by the sun.  How about it LJ?


Sounds too good to be true - not saying it's not. Does anyone know of someone or has anyone had any experience with this? Isn't the 104 outside the bee's comfort zone?

         I know when I was in Peace Corps in North Africa. The temperature get up to a 100-115 F on a regular basis in the summertime. yes I was a beekeeper and the Bees use did use a lot of water.
        I also know there was not many Varroa Mites on bees at this temperature they were a lot on the comb and the side walls of the hive. The local beekeepers took advantage of this. :shocked: What they would do about an hour before sunset. They would get a plastic sheet the same size as the bottom board. And would cover it with olive oil. And they would get up in the morning before sunrise and pull a piece of plastic out. :wink:

              BEE HAPPY Jim 134  :smile:

Before reading the website I thought they meant to kill the brood as a method of getting the 100% kill ratio.  116 degrees is not enough to melt wax.  How hot does it get in a warm room for extraction?

Jim, you might could post a question concerning your phone/laptop/or what ever in the "Computer Tech Help" on here. There's some bright folks in there.

I still have the flip phone...
