Where are you located?
There may be some individuals on this list who can help you but HoneyLove does
not do bee rescues.
Requests are referred to Bee Allies. You might contact them.
Welcome to swarm watch, it can be a long wait. . I have never had one show up and others have virtual parade of them.
For the wax, you can show up to one of the meetings at Barlow and ask there. This month there is no meeting, instead we will be hive building at Dunn-Edwards on the West side.
When I started I used wax from Church candles. I did not have anything else and if it was good enough for God it was good enough for my bees.
No idea how clean it was but it worked fine for me. You will be using very little on any single frame. I would not worry about contaminating your hive. You can keep the amount so small it would be insignificant in the long run.
I will be at the Barlow meeting on Sunday 10/29, look me up if you are interested.
If you can show up at the Rediscover Center, 12958 W Washington Blvd, Los Angeles?, we will be having a class/meeting. There will be plenty beeks there, new & old. Meeting is at 11:30 Sunday July 30April 25, 2017 at 6:47 am in reply to: Looking for this specific frame style. Have you seen it? #10799
You cam adapt your standard frames to be like that. Go to a good lumber yard (not Lowe’s or Home Depot) and ask if they have chamfer strips. Learned Lumber in Hermosa Beach has them in the perfect width to fit a frame. They came in very long pieces but the yard will cut them to size Request them to cut to 16 7/8 inches and they will fit just right. (17 in is too long). Attach to your frames and you ar good to go.January 2, 2014 at 7:20 am in reply to: Where can I buy some spats? Or anything equivalent. #7509
Check sporting goods stores. They are usually called gaiters.
(I may be one of the few on this list familiar with the term “spats”, it is not something the younger generation has heard.)
Looks good but how big a ladder will you need when the Langs hive has three more supers on it?. I suppose that by the time you would have that many supers you would have switched to one method or the other instead of this mixture.
