  1. Were the same way, not much snow and very dry. Had less than 1.3 inches of rain as of the first of May. If we get started it will be pretty bad around here.
  2. I would agree with others, they are not set right for you. I have had several pairs of regular and safety glasses that were progressive. Some have been great, others drove me nuts and I couldn’t wear them. It appears that it’s all about when they take the measurements. i would go back and tell them you issue. unless your in you recliner with you feet up and your tv is almost on the floor?
  3. I agree. The positive able across the top has been a problem for me
  4. Each stack is still one hive. As they build up stores of honey they need space and the keeper adds boxes. when they are in the almonds they are coming out of winter with only brood so it’s only a single deep tall, they build up brood in the almond Pollination in feb and march and they add deeps(boxes). Those look like they are making honey and have had more added for the homey. Regarding spraying, I would offer to notify, share what your spraying, and try not to spray with the wind going towards the hives. You might check what the state rules are just to be sure. You might be surprised when you research the effects of the spray on bees. Some are nothing, others are toxic
  5. I found some electronic copies of International manuals on eBay. I just don’t know what quality they are and haven’t tried them yet. Being able to search a PDF is very handy. Having pictures of an old manual isn’t.
  6. It’s soap so you use water. I take a little dap of soap, get some water on my hands and work it around
  7. Over the holidays we went to Costa Rica and stayed at a AirBnB. So we went shopping for groceries and picked up a tub of paste dish soap. I liked it and ordered it from Amazon when we got home. it’s dried out some since no one seems to put the cover on. But I started using it to wash my hands. Works better than almost anything else. I highly recommend it this might be the amazon link https://a.co/d/irvALP6 I searched for Axiom dishwasher paste
  8. From the rock shaft to the valve block on the left side. Good luck
  9. Congratulations to the young lady. It’s amazing how much and fast your girls have grown since you started this thread
  10. found that Bates had them on the shelf, not very cheap but they had them
  11. Update as of this afternoon I got all the parts off eBay to change to a linkage style system. I want the Tele-a-depth system working just because. so while going thru everything I found this so I need a new gear. Anyone have any leads?
  12. I have some packages of bees arriving tomorrow to start my year off. I envy those of you who can keep hive year around
  13. Find one with a cloth covered cord. It will outlast your children
  14. I hadn’t thought of that, I don’t have rear remotes, they are all up front. But it would get me running again. Thanks for the idea
  15. Perfect. Thank you for the information. I think I found everything needed and it’s on the way. The only piece that could be a hiccup is the little piece that goes on the end of the bell crank. But until I have the parts here I just don’t know which version is coming.
