  1. Hi Gary/all I do I belive Microponics Nation is the better of the two (I would maybe ad HQ or use HQ instead of nation ?) A forum name really dosen't matter much, other than being hit or found by random, by people searching the www without knowledge of the forums existence. If the forum name contains Microponics the likelihood of being hit by potential forum participants are higer IMO If one do a google search using the word Microponics vs Have more for less, you will see what I mean or why I mean it. It is also very likely that someone would a
  2. Hi All In Gary's 100-days sprint ...... thread he made this reference I never saw the video before, now I have, and feel it deserves a post with the video embedded, for all to watch, enjoy cheers

    Hi Struggling a bit with the pics in the previous post I decided early not to move my hives for the "ling harvest" (at least this 1. year) , but rather concentrate on learning my bees, behavior, reproduction ................. maybe try to expand and split the 2 in to 4 hives...... I never got to the point of producing my own queens, as the equipment needed for that, arrived to late in the season (so that's next years assignment now) . I have kept stacking new boxes on the 2 hives, so to keep up with the space demand and to avoid swarming, at this point in time I'm at 5flor

    Hi again So I added another box end of June, and got to inspect my plastic frames. seems to work just fine compared with the wood frames here Looking at how they have built in the siling the expansion was in do time. cheers
  5. Hi I have yet to try out the flowhive, so I have no personal experience with it. I do know I will buy/set up one, at some point, then I'll get back and share the pros/cons I see, compared with the traditional hives I have now. I think they are "to expensive" around here, how ever I do come across some "used"/secondhand (new), at half price or less, so I will eventually buy at least one, when the time is right. I find some of the criticism odd, like this (and other statements) If one reads the support pages the above should be obvious IMO Quote : Manuka honey (a
  6. Hi all Thought I'd share this cool video cheers
  7. Hi I'm currently reading - Queen breeding (Køniginnenzucht), by Friedrich Ruttner. It's a nice book, however I have to read it a chapter here and a chapter there, as my understanding/experience develops. So it's more like a illustrated dictionary than a book, to me. But still a really good read on apiculture. cheers
  8. Hi Gary I belive picking all those "low-hanging fruits" are really important and to often overseen We have a saying here in Norway : "Mange bekker små, gjør en stor å" directly translated : "Many small streams, make one big river" I think it's real cool to see how you in fact make a difference, in your over all environmental footprint cheers

  10. Hi all cut/paste : Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year. In 2021, it falls on July 29. We know it can be overwhelming to think about the various impacts of global ecological overshoot such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and extreme weather events (to name a few). However, thriving lives within the means of our planet are not out of reach. For 100 Days of Possibility, we’re highlighting ways fo
  11. Hi All here: https://thefishsite.com/articles/high-hopes-for-aquaponics-system-inspired-by-sewage-treatment Quote: In a recent study, researchers demonstrated that the system could improve nutrient remineralisation for the plants, while removing excess nitrogen and carbon from the system, creating a healthier environment for fish. The study, published in Frontiers in Plant Science, was undertaken by researchers from the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Gothenburg and involved the production of rainbow trout and lettuce. cheers

  13. Hi tzn0034 Welcome to APN/HQ It would be nice if you took the time to introduce your self in the welcome wagon I fixed the link and did the survey don't know if me doing the survey means anything to you in the US, me living in Norway? cheers

    Next step, add the boxes with the new frames to the hives, so to expand the space available. I had my youngest son to "assist" meaning taking pics from a distance, and I got my phone ready to snap a few. Impossible task the bees got really aggressiv, so my son had to flea the place and I just quickly added the two new boxes, but got confirmed a nice level of activity in both colonies The next expansion I had some nice assist by my fosterson in full protection gear so I could snap a load of pics more 🐝🐝 to follow soon cheers

    Hi again So, getting things ready to expand their hives, to avoid any swarming, is the next move on the agenda. I'v chosen plastic frames for my hives, as that seems to be the less work route ? Getting the frames ready, means applying a thin layer of wax on both sides of the frames I melted the wax in the oven at 110C and rolled it on with a paint roller. I had 2boxes of wax going, so when the wax in one chilled and started hardening, I swapped it with the hot/liquid one, standing in the oven. I understand that I appli
