  1. hi john ared you making your foundation ?
  2. hi mumzie, how many sheets a year do produce,
  3. i've had this before in a bout 3 hives, they do come right but takes a long time, one hive i had suffered from this all summer and i kept thing its a goner, a new queen was put into this hive and now 12 months on its a good strong hive, it does seem a little strange its happening now, iam sure all my 3 hives got it early to late spring
  4. i've dumped them right behind the hives a few times, and that worked ok
  5. 5 -7 kg per hive, i think i had about 5 hives produced about that each this year,
  6. not real men used, looks nice in the garden as well,
  7. I 'am having a senor moment, CPBV is what ?
  8. a lot of our hives seem to be very light, not quite how i would like them to be going into winter
  9. yes they are great, ideal for cutting around rocks and fence posts etc
  10. there would have to have been a small hole there first from the wasps, bees can not break the skins even on the softer types
  11. you are not on your own there,
  12. yes i do it, works most times, but needs to be fresh each time, lemon barm dose not, work nor mint or dill
  13. if its any help, i had a hives suffer from some thing like this for two seasons, this year it seems to have kicked the virus and has done really well, every time in the past when i checked this hives there where a large number of bees covering the ground, they lost so many
  14. as above the votes results for the levy, the no's won
  15. with 22 frames and a lot of bees I would get rid of the disc and make them a larger whole, with the hot weather they need to fan air into the hive to cool
  16. I've been asked if i want to put our Lavender honey in there,- haven't yet
  17. may be they have had a heads up on the way the voting is gong
