Hi! My name is Ben, I'm a big fan of your content. Just wanted to commend you on your love for tech. I think it's a really cool passion of yours that I appreciate, though I don't invest as much in it myself. Mostly, I've just tried out the flow hive and have some of my information stored on hivetracks.com. I wanted to share with you a new show coming up that could be an opportunity. If you have a cool invention, perhaps "Make Me a Millionaire Inventor" could help you out. I am in no way affiliated with them, I just thought of your interest in gadgets when I heard about it. Again, love your show. I've got 12 hives up here in NH and am slowly but surely building my expertise in queen rearing because there's a lot of demand for Northern Queens and local nucs. Happy Beekeeping! Ben
Hi! While not keeping bees, I'm still interested and am slowly working through Your podcasts. I would like to report, however, that episode #81 seems to be compromised. Over a period of two weeks I have occasionally tried to download it, but will only get just shy of 3 MBytes. Best regards! /Sven
Thanks for the great website. I just built your hive stand, and I've got a couple of comments. First, it's a GREAT design!. First comment: While the cut list is correct, there are two errors in the dimension picture. The two horizontals in the saddle area that the bottom board sits on show 12". They need to be 11" Second comment: I'm running 8 frame boxes (13-3/4" wide), and this plan can be adapted for a perfect fit by decreasing the 11" sections by about 3-1/2". Once again, thanks so much for the great plans!
Kevin email/call me about the Arnia hive monitoring system. I have had three since March and there is an issue you need to know before instilling them. 2108638024
Hi, very nice site, Thank you. I constructed your hive stand model, worked fine for me! Have a look here : https://www.flickr.com/x/t/0092009/photos/yorthopia/26647597223/ Best regards
Thanks for all the interesting lessons in beekeeping. I've learned a lot from your podcast. I started in beekeeping this spring with 4 hives my Grandfather was caring for. He is 86 years old and kept bees for many years and is ready to hand it off. So I have a great mentor and am enjoying the learning process.
Nice work on the new site. Have been listening to the podcast for a couple years. Thank you for the time you put into it. Keep up the good work Kevin.
Greetings Kevin, I really enjoy the podcast. I am starting my first two hives this april. I decided last fall that I wanted to get into keeping bees. Since I deliver chinese food for a living, I have countless hours of time to listen to postcasts. Yours are definitely one of my favorites.I appreciate all the hard work you do to get the podcasts out. Keep up the good work.
starting beekeeping this spring for the first time. Thanks for your podcasts, my bees survival (once they arrive) will be entirely dependent upon what I have learned from you during my commute to work each day. I have no doubt they will bee fine. Cheers.
Hi ~ I met you at a Rutgers beekeeping course. My FLOW hive has arrived & is still in the box. I wondered if you wanted to see it?
Hey Kevin, Just getting back up on beekeeping as I had a procedure that knocked me for a loop. Saying that your new site looks great! Local Hive report I had three hives going into winter and just looked in on them and have 1 hive that I'll be splitting and trying to make some nukes. Take care and keep up the good work.
Jim sobiek from Reno. Starting this spring with 2 hives. Have read and listened alot.really great podcast you produce. Thanks
Kevin - you work supports beekeepers across the nation and the globe. Thanks for all the time and energy you put into keeping your fellow beekeepers informed. Love the new website. Such a great look and containing such good information. You're my beekeeping hero!
