Couple of years huh. :laugh: Have you read any studies about how long it takes polystyrene to decompose?
Yes, it burns in 10 minutes. I burn them outdoors if needed. one box is 1 kg plastic.
Shame, shame on Finski! Oh so he's the one burning all that crap coming from Finland, heh? I guess we should have known :-P Hey Finski, next time burn them inside, let us know how that goes :-D
I've got 4- 5 frame NUCs (started mid August) colonies seperately stashed inside one of my LONG Hives for this Winter. All four were doing OK 3 weeks ago but my set up doesn't allow for opening/feeding when its this cold, each NUC has access to about a pound of dry sugar, all I could fit and still keep things separate.
This is A first try/experiment for me since that LONG Hive colony finally passed on this Spring after surviving three winters. I'll let you all know how it all works out come Spring. I do have 2" foam on the bottom and top of the LONG Hive. Wish my bees luck. If successful I'll start making NUCs this way every season.
