    Beekeepers must have got a bit more work done over the last day! @Grant your uptime is very good and this must have been some long hours. Thanks.

    You can if you do the online test and give them $60. https://www.merchento.com/training.html

    This link on an AFB vaccine seems like it could be interesting. I hope that goes somewhere.

    Is that near Bethells? If so, that place is like a furnace come February, and you’re made of tough stuff. Edit: Funny, beaten!

    Honey Price Collapse

    Good luck James. One of the most satisfying parts is opening the honey gate (this may be due to the work it took to get to this stage though). Love it.

    NZBF Strapping hives

    @Stoney, I like your side handles on the boxes too.

    There is another person with an ‘a’ rather than a 4 in their name. I’ve mentioned them before rather than you and it alerts the wrong person. I don’t think I’ve seen such a tidy yard before. It’s excellent.

    Cow farmers AFB moment

    It’s interesting how the current extraction requirements are moving towards this - boxes marked and traceable etc. I haven’t been following that carefully so maybe have misunderstood it.

    The fact that fencing is built like that makes me nervous.

    As an aside, messaging that person doesn’t get you @M4tt. I was doing that too.

    NZBF Bees not using escape

    The type may be the issue. It’s this one. 2 on each board. The weather is looking to be a lot better today, so they may move out. Clearing boxes and minimising robbing at extraction time were my two biggest issues last year and I’d like do better this year!

    NZBF Bees not using escape

    Yes, they were above an excluder and still are (one box remains above excluder, then there is the escape then the capped honey). The bees are coming and going but the good weather has probably only been an hour or two long. Bees are flying in the rain, but it’s been very windy too.
