Sorry bout the slow reply...I'm still getting the hang of this forum ... I'll keep an eye out for stainless bar.... but finding 2" plate is easy.... but the skinny stufff tends to come out kinda bent. I'll see what I can find. Regards,
i have had a one to one mix in a small top feeder , on top of my crown boards for about a fortnight now, for some reasonmy lot did not like to take the fondant i brought for them, dont know why may be they are just fussy. so any time you like realy and i was planning on feeding for about another four weeks just to start the spring build up but to stop before the main flow starts with the spring flowers, i dont have any supers on and i realy want to make sure the little sods go and fill at least 8 frames or more before the time i do, i that way i force them to keep the syrup down stairs, pete
I have watched your video "making a nuc box body part 2 and you make it lok bery simple but you dont give the dimensions, I have looked all over the place for them but cannot find them.
The vid is brill, all I need is the dimensions and I can go into production.
Can you let me have them.
Cheers if you can.
I have built a vac bee vac as suggested by your ideas. I have used a brood box and a super. I made a 12mm base board and a top as per your video. I use a Zannusi vacuum which has a variable speed motor and a suction adjustment in its hose. I have used an out of date credit card to control the suction in the bee vac. I have not tried it out on bees but it works wonders on butterflies. Thanks for the insperation. Regards Chip972
Hello Pete, I saw your videos on making a nuc box, do you have a document that gies a list of all the pieces and their size? There is also mention of a video to construct a solar wax melter but i cannot find it, is it still online?
Many thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge - by the way what software did you use to edit/prepare your videos?
Just wanted to let you know, that if you are interested I can supply you with organic bulk honey from Bulgaria, 100 % pure herbal honey directly from producers for 2GBP per 1 kg if there are big orders.
I was told at thornes to use Cuprinol clear on outside of of the hive only!
i saw on one of your vidio's you use it on the inside of the hive, is there any reason for this, it is insect friendly?
