  1. yep they are good, i have one the same
  2. We are still getting a lot of wasps in some of our hives, every hive now has a reducer on, never stopped seeing wasps this year.
  3. theres always the packet of 2 minute noddles if you want a change.
  4. i find it a bit strange that there is not a lot more beekeepers suffering these lose's that a few of us are getting, referring to the dead hives of cause,
  5. they will only buy a small portion of our honey and blend with there so called honey made from corn and sugar mixes and what ever else they can find to put in it and sell back to us when they can
  6. john are dead bees any good ? same thing hives heaps of stores, seems to be hitting the older hives - late summer/autumn hives seem to be getting though ok, i don't believe it has any thing to do with the varora strips as we used two different strips some times in the same hives, they still died. always seems to be the same thing, hive gets down to a little cluster of about 40-60 bees then they just get hit with the cold, in a lot of these hives the queen seems to disappear quite early on leaving no brood to come on,
  7. Snap ! us too who do we get to test bees
  8. can they be painted i like painted boxes ? also if i get full depths now and decide to go 3/4 can i cut them down to 3/4 with out stuffing them ?
  9. remaining hives are looking ok, possibly a bit lower in numbers than i would expect to see, don't think poisoning as not a lot of dead bees in front of hive. the few that are left in the hive some have there heads in the cells as though short of food, but are not they have food on the frames they are on,
  10. most hives, no bees and honey a bout half. a half cup of bees, dead and honey, possible a bout 40% of hives checked at this stage, more to check next week
  11. we are having pretty much the same problems frazzledfozzle still alot of bite in the strips, have found no queens in the small patch of bees left, the surviving hives seem to be a lot of the Autumn splits or smaller hives going into winter, i do not think the very warm autumn helped the strong hives much, they just got stronger, no hives have been short of food they have left with heaps still ready to eat, got me beat.
  12. we have had a few hives looking the same, strips all good, plenty of stores. capped brood, but in all the ones that did have a small hand full of dead brood there were no queens, no afb,
  13. yes i know of one of those bridge's a well
