    First Queens Of The Season

    I'll agree, had a few of Laurence the past couple of years and they have all been absolute beasts. No doubt I'll be ordering a couple more for some early season splits next week.

    What did you do in the 'workshop' today

    I had a chat with them, great looking gear and at great prices. Had to hold back pulling the trigger without knowing more. I believe the vlokes behind it are polish and ship it over.

    Full face mask for Vaping.

    I use the same one, it's fantastic get a great seal even with my beard, full visibility and I have not had any fogging issues. I got the recommendation from a Stuart Spinks video and glad I went with it. Along with the instantvap mite treatment is a breeze.

    Wired sheets for me across the board. I use mainly 14x12s and had some sucess with the frames and feeders frames and will look at moving another 4 hives over this season.

    Fruugo - cheap kit for the frugal

    I'd also recommend getting a silicone nozzle I melted a few poly nuc entrances last year before sticking a silicone straw to the end. Pretty sure I read they now come with one nozzle and a silicone cleaner cup. Also saw the new uploaded video of the silicone cover to help with heat retention...

    Instant vap, used for first time

    I use homemade underfloor entranced from this forum, drilled a whole in the back and vape through that, nothing fancy but does the job. Might just vape through the OMF itself in future...
