  1. View Offer Nassenheider Proffesional Total height is now 70mm only - therefore it even fits into a feeder, turned upside down! The tank is a bottle - You can fill it under optimal safety conditions in your workshop and transport it closed to the bee yard. The tank capacity is now 290 ml, enough to treat even the biggest hives with formic acid, without the need of filling it up again. The whole Evaporator is a compact item. The horizontal wick lies inside a tray, to save the young brood from the concentrated formic acid-fumes and liquid acid. The evaporator is standing absolutely stabile inside the tray. Innovation: Two drip trays plugged together allow the clean and convenient storage of the evaporator with accessories until the next season.

  3. I had this once, a swarm was in an Avocado orchard as I was shaking them I could see they had build comes on the tree??? They where not after a hollow tree or so and certainly they did not behave like a swarm. ouch
  4. Swarm season is coming early this year I guess. That for I thought you need to see this one could,t stop to laugh.
  5. They are actually just starting to flower and bees go crazy on it. I don't know the name but always surprised how big the spike is.
  6. So don't you dare let your bees come to my side and mate my queens as I am a pure breed queen breeder. Don't you dare let your bees pollinate my black tomatoes as I am raising seeds of them and can't have lack and yellow ones! Don't you dare to let your bees fly on my land as I am allergic! ........ ........ and so on. I think it's quite a selfish thought.
  7. Just found this webpage I thought is quite good as a lot of beeks asking for calculating solutions. https://www.bartelt.io/en/labtools/solution-dilution-calculator/
  8. Not with polystyrene hives hahaha
  9. Just treating a hive with formic acid 70%, day 16º nights have been 5º to 8º. Just checked today all is good formic is evaporating quite well wick in the tray is not to wet. Good varroa drop.
  10. Formic acid sorry AS (Ameisensaeure)
  11. Hi sorry missed that. You need 80ml of 80-85% formic acid per 100l volume. I put only 7 frames per box to ensure good evaporation of the formic acid. On the top box, I putt my Nassenheider with the biggest wick and a plastic foil to seal the top box. I do a second treatment after 7 days that's it.
  12. What is a good spot for bees? A friend of mine brings his bees in late summer in forests (in Germany), two years ago he stuck with his trailer and could not go to his prefered spot so he set up the hives just at this spot. He described the spot as really bad in his opinion. As the weather improved he wanted to go and move the hives he could not believe how well the bees did at this spot so he left them there and harvested twice as much honey as he did the years before. What is the temperature there at present? and at night time?
  13. ups! you are right should have been for Craig75
