    Weather Stations

    Does anyone use a weather station at their out apiary. If so any recommendations ? Obviously there is no WiFi at my out apiary so would need to connect to 4G. Is there such a thing ?

    What did you do in the Apiary today?

    Enough space in the middle for another national if needed. Although that's not the intention. But yes a nucleus hive would fit easily, the main frame rails are wide enough for brood frames to rest between during inspections.

    Wet Supers

    Are you saying you wouldn't put wet supers on at all ?

    What did you do in the Apiary today?

    One of 2 stands I’m making. I’m moving my garden hives to an out apiary after 5 years in the garden. This stand almost done. A couple of braces required for the legs. I don’t think this will collapse.

    Mineral Oils

    Morning all, My mentor has for over 40 years, been coating the inside of his hives with a quality mineral based machine oil, thinned with white spirit. He also coats the outside every few years with Creosote, then lets them air for a couple of weeks before putting them back into service. I've...

    Hello from Cotgrave, Nottingham.

    Hi ianorsven I will keep an eye out for you, with regards the NBKA website I notice a lot of old or outdated info ie. dates for meetings & newsletters etc. I have sent them an email regarding this but as yet received no reply. Have you been to any meetings yet or visited the apiaries ?

    Thorne Hives

    No, doesn't have to be a Thorne, it was just one of the makers I looked at & I liked the fact that they look well made/good quality & not too far away from me, so I could visit them, look around & pick up what I needed. Where are ******** situated ? itma, I am aware of the different sizes...

    Thorne Hives

    How did a question on mouse guards turn up in a thread about Thorne winter sales. People are answering too. :ot:

    Many thanks. I'll keep an eye on the website then. It would be the Lincs one I'll visit.

    Thorne Hives

    I'm looking at buying a Thorne WBC sometime soon & I am led to believe that they have a winter sale, so that might be a good time to pay them a visit. Question is, does anyone know when this sale is likely to be ?

    Suit or Smock

    I did that to a mate of mine once, he was drunk & asleep at the time. Freaked him out as well, when he found out :sorry: I'll get me coat........

    Suit or Smock

    Mine also from Sherriff, suit £120, gloves £20 + VAT + postage. I understand that suits will not stop me from being stung but do give a little more protection, up your shirt and down the bike park etc Purchased it more for keeping sticky stuff off me diesels ;-) Maybe the gloves might be too...

    Rubbish advise.

    :iagree: I have used forums a lot over the past 10 - 15 years, moderators should do just that, moderate, remove posts or threads that go off topic or transform into slanging matches, because that is not what anyone wants to see. If bad advice is given then someone will step in to correct it...

    Suit or Smock

    I am following this thread because I'm a new member and a potential new beekeeper, so it is interesting to see what is best to use. Most, if not all the advice I have read about suits is that, especially for new beekeepers, is to wear a full suit. Until they are used to handling bees and hives...

    Suit or Smock

    Just purchased my first suit and leather gloves from sherriff's, suit has the fencing type veil Not cheap but recommended by my now mentor, said he's had his for about 7 years and would recommend them highly, and he's in his 40th year of beekeeping, thats good enough for me.
