Okay, sorry to be back asking for help again so soon, but i know this lull in the weather is my friend when it comes to getting information ready for the spring management...so ..new question.
As i have mentioned we have a lot of "field" work and would put on and take off frames, spin, treat for dad, and maintenance too. HOwever, he has marked his frames with a DG and a PS, we know that means duragel and palstersill correct??? I know it has something to do with which hives he wanted cut comb from. RIGHT?
I call this center board a foundation for that is what dad always called it, not sure i am being clear though as to what i mean. HOwever, could you share some wisdom on the foundations for cutcomb and for spinning. We know how to cut the comb, package it, process it in the hive etc, but since I was a strong believer in "doing is knowing"
I have failed to know the behind the scenes ordering, styles of foundations, etc.
Still awaiting that book at the library and hope it helps, but somehow I'd rather hear it from a REAL beekeeper/Apiarist or someone who at least has had some experience. That is why this site is absolutely perfect for us and I thank you in advance for any good advise you can lend.
Oh yeah, took your advise on the varroa mite situation and confectionary sugar, ALSO on the burr comb, I was so worried that we shouldhave left it there but trust me we would never have been able to get that apart later (without some good old muscle straining teehe) THANKS!@
