  1. we have two off the machines, they do tend to take up much needed room, can make good work benches with machines off,
  2. awesome, i have just the right place to house it, so cool
  3. yer found one in the BBQ department, then went to Bunnings and brought the gas for $5.30 for 4 bottles, happy as.
  4. yes I see that, will have a look today, the site does say they have it in stock,
  5. went and had a look in mitre 10 today for one of these head set's, they have the bottles but not the head sets,
  6. yep done that, but was for 3 weeks and my heart sank to the ground when I saw it, half the hive was dead, no honey left in the frames or very little, had to clean out heaps of dead bees and requeen and put a couple of frames of brood and honey back in for them, hive did well after that,
  7. all our frames are made from pallet timber, if you can get the real long ones all the better, and pipe surrounds are great, not many nails
  8. we have had 3 case's this year, all different sites, a bit of a worry as we have had some thing like 23 AFB notifications,
  9. couple of cans of fish oil would be just as good
  10. i think cancelling the DECA wont do much, just put you in a negitive mode, i think they would be better working along side the person that has the problem help sort things out,
  11. you need to get yourself a hive then, Derek, we miss your posts
  12. @Pollen Id what do you need for a sample ?
  13. bit more funding in this area would be great, there seems to be a big increase in AFB, every one i talk too has it or know sone one who has, every 2nd day theres another txt with 3/4 afb alerts on it, this year i have already burned 3 hives, thats a first,
  14. frames will be the next to mark, has any one used or know any one using the small mico chips bored into a hole in the suppers ?
  15. $2.52 per hive is about $1.50 too much as well
  16. sounds like gum mixed with cats ear.
  17. heres another, good spot to stop for a coffee break
  18. nuc;s get one stone if theres a queen, two if eggs or brood, all hives recorded this time of year, all box numbers recorded, state of hive, stores, etc, all in a little note book, would like some thing like a chip or bar code that can be scaned when boxes taken off, frames removed, any movements made,
  19. you sure about that, i know they made gelatine from hoofs, skins etc never heard of GL
  20. is the GL you use made from rape seed oil, ?
  21. do you buy the thick or the runny glycerine or does it make no difference ?
  22. going to call my truck Gladus, please as punch it passed its last warrant needing nothing done to it, since I brought it, it has cost between $400.00 too $1200.00 for warrants, this was taking it to Toyota for the free warrants while I have the truck, so took it to the testing station this time - passed thank you, but I see the rego has run out, this was expired when I took it for its warrant and none of us picked it up, I didn't think you could get a warrant with a expired rego
