    I was just wondering if there are any beek pictures members on the forum might like to see? I find that there are times that I run across stuff and think, "This would make a great pic for the forum".
    If I had an idea of what folks might like to see or find useful I could try and oblige over the next while and see if I could compile some helpful stuff.
    Any step by step stuff? (Riverbee has done a couple of nice ones)

    How about a courtesy bus driver in a field of blueberries?

    Thanks for thinking of us Perry :) I would post a few up as you run into them. Then based on the comments you get, you'll start getting a feel for what folks like.

    A word of caution on copyright laws though, some websites don't like other people copy / pasting their work. If we have something on here and the owner asks me to take it down then I'll have to delete it. You could put a link to where you found it to give credit to the author (this usually helps)

    Hope that helps!

    Maybe the stipulation for posting on this thread should be that the pictures are all original shots, taken by the posters.

    Sorry Charles, I was thinking of original photos only, as Efmesch suggested.
    I was musing on if someone wanted to see a picture of how to (shave the beard off a drone), I would try and take pictures of that myself. I don't want to ever go near the copyrighted stuff, too much aggravation.
    I don't mind taking pics for this forum's use though (pretty evident) :lol:

    Then by all means bring them on! Sorry if I jumped on that copyright pedestal too quickly :) I've gotten a cease and desist before from a big company at it's not fun :rules:

    Acetic acid treatment/Sample post

    If you suspect nosema ceranae spores in your dead outs you may want to sterilize your boxes by acetic acid treatment.
    Stack boxes of deadouts max to five deeps. On the top of the stack place a non metalic dish with 80% acetic acid, ratio is 120ml or 4oz/10 frame deep. Acetic acid fumes are heavier than air, so make sure there is no gap where those fumes may escape.
    Picture 1 Acetic Acid 2 008.jpg

    You may use painters tape to close joints between boxes. Place empty box on the top, close all gaps and leave it for a week.
    Picture 2
    Acetic Acid 3 010.jpg After one week let boxes air for a couple of days before giving them to bees. Acetic acid is very corosive,make sure you wear mask and gloves, and keep it away from metal.

    Hi Tom.
    I was thinking more of a "request" kinda thing. If there were folks that would like to see something, we could perhaps go out and actually show it.
    If your beekeep friend has a link that would be cool though.

    I just do a search in google and click the images tab. End up with more pix than I know what to do with. For action shots, like robbing, youtube is the place to go. I think all pix are helpful anywhere they're posted, as they relate to the problem. Just wish I could work bees and take pix at the same time. Too scared to take off the leather gloves and too clumsy to work a camera with them on.

    You can attach PDF up to 4 meg. Powerpoints are Microsoft so we can't do that...

    I've removed gloves to take pictures (actually, I've been going gloveless a fair amount lately). The only real problem, is I always seem to get propolis on the camera. It's one of those tiny things and it is hard as the dickens to get clean. :smile:

    Hey Charles, can he save it as an Open Office presentation and post it that way? It isn't Microsoft anymore.

    "will convert my ppts to PDF"

    zulu, i had a ppt slide show as well, and wound up just using windows movie maker to make a short video with no sound. turned out nice and still looks like a slide show, and can embed here.

    There isn't a way that I know of, Openoffice has a flash export but those types of files are very insecure. PDF or youtube would be the best way...
