Re: 1 1/4 frames

Re: 1 1/4 frames

Some of the info you can ignore as I was originally going to cut a wedge for comb guide but decided to just make a groove and use thin pieces of scrap wood as the starter guides on the top bar. That's the angle info you're seeing that can be ignored

Re: 1 1/4 frames

Here you go. I use a table saw with a dado blade and a regular blade and a couple of sleds to make all my cuts

First swarm caught after recently moved

New state, new bees. 9, 1 1/4" frames in 8 frame equipment from a swarm trap. These pics are from a 27 day old catch. Didn't see the queen but only pulled the outside 3 or 4 frames. Foundationless and perfectly straight. They swarmed in the middle of berry flow and now clover everywhere. http:/...

This is my first year with bees but my second for observing plant blooms. I don't plan on taking this year. The Brazilian pepper in aug/sept and the maleleuca in oct/nov should provide enough for December which I believe may be dearth. We also had salt bush in my neighborhood last year in November. ...

Need advice: advantages/disadv for adding a box
