You rock, Don. I love you no-nonsense, DIY, straight-talk – I don’t see anywhere to donate – do I need to go to your website?

I grew up in the northern part . went to school in brunswick.

ThunderthePoodle says:

Wherabouts in Ohio are you from fella lots of good germans here. Thanks for learin on the cheap I love it .

fineshooter says:

I think there a waste of time there very hard to do any inspections on. and there is no re sale value to them.

Cinqmil says:

Hey Don,
What is your take on topbar hives? Is it worth it to build one to try it out?


fineshooter says:

any dowels work.just shape them on ends.

fineshooter says:

once there capped watch for thinning of end then place them in nuc’s.

sneakers0 says:

after the cells are capped, how long do you wait to put them in a queenless hive?

James Goldsberry Jr says:

after you wax the dowel and flatten the bottom and you have the wax the
way you like why not set in freezer for a few min then they should just pop off the dowel. I work with wax and dowels when I do my dowels working with gems this is the best way to remove the wax
