  1. do you buy the thick or the runny glycerine or does it make no difference ?
  2. 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
  3. this ones just down the road a little,
  4. great that's just made my day, the box that arrived yesterday has the same batch number as yours, not used any yet been to wet.
  5. That is looking good, how long will you get out of the batteries ? or are they charged by the truck,?
  6. hi not that it makes any difference to whats happened, but do you remove the brood, also were the hives in your section, if so have you any unusual or different types of plants, it may be some thing that you have become immune to and your visitors are not, but i'am with frazz with this. will be interesting to see what the results are.
  7. we harvest 3/4 times in a good year, this keeps the bees working as all frames taken out are replaced with wets, this really gets them motivated.
  8. gee's yesbut you an't got nothing to worry about, out of thirty of my sites i have had 24 AFB notices, it sure makes you wonder what the heck is going on or are we about to have a afb explosion, on the plus side i have not found any yet.
  9. hi jamesc try above number or gardenbees@hotmail.co.nz
  10. longest has been two weeks no problem if weather is good.
  11. it is still liquid i take it
  12. any chance of sending 4-5 kg bucket up this way as a sample, will pay post etc, may look at a few drums if it works out ok
  13. what is going on, just looked at my api web site, 23 of my sites out of 30 have AFB alerts on them
  14. some of those lovely big new clovers don't seem to produce much nectar
  15. ok then not powder for, honey baths/soak, 500grm honey into a bath full of hot/warm water - got to be good for the skin soaking in honey, need not put too much in as it then becomes to sticky, right going back to powdered honey i have made some inquires as to cost etc etc from our local dryer, will report back later when i know more.
  16. great web site, I believe they have just put in a bigger dryer as well
  17. I like the idea of powdered honey, easy to use, easy to transport, easy to package, But the cost to powder could be quite high it would need to be cheap enough to sit on the supermarket shelf beside the sugars.
  18. to sell you will also need to have it tutin tested and passed,
  19. I have a hive like this, it has lost a lot of bees this season, last year it had the same problem and seemed to came right by its self, all autumn and winter it was good, but soon as spring build up started it was back again, I had three hives last year with this the other are all good,
