  1. Ok so i dont post here much but i have done lots of reading over the years . during this covid break i had no work for a long period of time so had some time up my sleeve. over the last few years ive developed a vaporiser for treating my bees here in new zealand i got sick of using a wand as it took to long so developed a quick blow in system out of junk in my garage and a couple of parts from china. i re built it a few times during covid. Then i decided to make 10 stainless steel units to sell to help make ends meet due to not having a job. so here they are im hoping
  2. Hi there, I've got a few bees with deformed wings in one of my hives and am wondering about the best way to treat it. I used Bayvarol in autumn and Apivar in spring, but have honey supers on the hive right now. Would the shook swarm method be the best way to try to knock varroa back? Can I put some of the honey frames back on the hive once it is set up to provide extra food? There's a good nectar flow on right now. Thanks.
  3. Hello. Someone used wormwood tincture for the prevention and treatment of nosematosis and varroa? What do you think about using tinctures in beekeeping? In Ukraine, beekeepers often use wormwood. The ancient doctor Avicenna called wormwood "a panacea for all diseases". Wormwood is considered a poisonous plant, but all medicines are also poisonous in a certain concentration. In Ukraine, beekeepers often use wormwood tincture for the prevention and treatment of nosematosis and varroa. Tincture of wormwood has a normalizing effect on the digestive system, metabolism, eliminate
  4. After some advice...I am using MAQS for the first time - one of my single depth boxes with a super on it has got me a bit puzzled as to what's going on... I put the MAQS into my hives yesterday. Today when I went for a check I find that one of my single depth with 1x super has the front and some of the sides totally covered in bees and quite thick in places too. I am running a hive doctor base and have the boxes behind the lugs so as to reduce the entrance and try prevent robbing that I saw happen on one of my other hives a week ago. The bees didn't appear to be fighting - rather just s
  5. Hi there, We usually treat our hives by alternating Bayvarol / Apivar, but are considering using MAQ for the upcoming round (we have 1500+ hives). I'd really like to hear from anyone who has used this & what your experience has been (apologies if this has been discussed in other threads I haven't read through)...Were the concerns of overdosing / sufficient ventilation / timing / queen loss actualised? Any heads-up with the treatment? Thanks in advance!
