  1. A swarm at one of my sites today. The hive it came from still had a large population. Dannevirke, Manawatu.
  2. looks good, the best of luck to you!
  3. Yeah it does look like that thanks Mr Yesbut!
  4. Hi, does anyone know what this critter is? Thank you!
  5. I drove back to Palmy from Whareroa this morning. Every second ute and truck was a bee vehicle. How many beekeepers are in Taranaki???!!
  6. Is there no end to some people’s greed?
  7. I was wet the other day, one site of 8 in the creek, 3/4 way up the jumbo boxes. Checked them today and all are alive and still have large numbers.

  11. Hey guys. I employ all home made frames with wax, but with the price of wax and the extraction lads not too happy with the odd frame breaking, I'm going to start introducing plastic and eventually have all the honey frames plastic. I still want to keep wood and wax in the broods. How are the pre waxed frames from Ecrotek? I have read previous posts on here from 2 or 3 years ago and people were not happy with bees avoiding or not drawing them properly. Have they changed since then? I'm not floating in money and don't want to buy a thousand or so and have issues with them. Many t
  12. Has anyone seen Shaun...the fellow from Kapiti with the jumbo brood boxes? I enjoyed reading his posts and recently realised I hadn't seen him on here. Thanks.
  13. Thanks for all your replies and helping me to understand a bit better!
