    Re: Back ground noise....

    Remember when Victor was bent out of shape when he was called by his first name? His forum name escapes me right now. I wonder if he cut the beans and made a little mini granary to store them? If...

    Followthehoney I think you are on the right track. It's less money to put out for a crop. Can I assume that you are chemical free when it comes to what you put in your hive?

    Followthehoney, I hope disheartening mesns that it kills pest for more than one season. That would be a bonus that farmers don't often get from a chemical company.

    Zhiv9, the lesson to be learned is that the bees need many sources of food to thrive. In other words, we can't run bees just anywhere now.
