Beekeeping 101 / Re: Another lost hive.....
« Last post by Apis63 on Today at 11:29:08 AM »
Thanks for your replies, Ted and Robo.  I would like to send some bees in--can you tell me, does it matter how long they've been dead?  I found them on Wednesday evening and have just left the hive as is outside--is it still ok to collect them and put them in the alcohol and send them? Just curious how long can they be dead before they can no longer be tested?

I do not see the need for it here either. like I said it was an experiment. anything that creates heat uses a lot of juice. when the block heater is plugged in for my diesel truck my electric bill goes up $20.00 per month!!

I have seen that type of thing for sale on e-bay, usually being sold from the Ukraine. I have never found it necessary and look where I live! :laugh:

Big box stores don't carry it. You'll need to find a local lumber company.

You need 1/8" or #8 hardware cloth.
1/4" is too big.
