  1. Everyone pays lab tests for themselfes. Serbian agricultural agency pays anual fee per every registrated hive, they also refund full price for every burned afb hive... and they have a few more stimulus for beekeepers but they don't want to pay for your lab tests. That's fine but cutting 50 000 tiny plywood bars was painfull job ?
  2. Here is one very interesting and informative movie about commercial beekeeping/ queen breeding in Serbia. Made by young but experienced and highly educated people that I had the honor to work with. Enjoy...
  3. Hi people My branding iron has arrived yesterday and I've tested it today. Very simple design, two bars and three bolts, easy to atach on the gas torch. I used it on new paraffin dipped boxes, old boxes, painted bottom boards, plywood, untreated pine, treated pine and it works great. Ooo boy so happy and it is not expensive at all. For all interested here is the link. I do not make these. Cheers ? https://www.ebay.com/itm/BRANDING-IRON-FOR-BEE-HIVES-AND-FRAMES-YOUR-TEXT-AND-LOGO-ON-BRASS/223448264925?hash=item34068df0dd:g:nx8AAOSw-YBXGdhZ
  4. I used to have average 75% mated queens but we'll see how it goes here. Stoney could live in the spa pool forever ? Bases for mini nucs are painted... and couple more bases for 2/3/5 fd frame nucs (last pic) ?
  5. I'v made this today while I was waithing dipper to reach temperature ? Just a simple box for everyday beekeeping (smoker, hive tool...) and one smaller box for grafting tools, cell cups, light... Also could be used as a grafting frame stand, small grafting station, indeed.
  6. I used 8 queens, also 3/4, in Serbia (Europe) with success. These are for next season, for the first time here in New Zealand.
