  1. Re: We made two videos at work for the Florida State Fair

    After viewing the inspection video I must ask you, where did you get that weak hive? That is one bad looking hive, bet it doesn't make it much longer. Next time you people do a demonstration video...

    Re: bees are thriving, not dying

    First of all my friends call me a right wing nut job! I share many views with people like Ted Cruz and Mr. Paul, but this article by Mr. Caruba is troubling. Mr. Caruba has been paid by the New...

    Re: Hat Veil Combo

    The Clear View Veil is the finest veil available IMHO. I have use them all over the years, but this veil with a mesh hat is a great combo. I have several, tie down and zipped styles, they are all...
  4. Re: Florida beekeepers and citrus growers will meet September 18 in Lake Alfred

    You may not be so lucky to be back in the groves. If you knew what was going on in regard to the amount of neonics that were being applied you might just change your mind and go elsewhere to protect...
  5. Re: Florida beekeepers and citrus growers will meet September 18 in Lake Alfred

    Not much good has come out of the Lake Alfred meeting, Neonics are still being sprayed at an alarming rate. Grove owners are not allowing beeks back in their groves, just ask me. After being hit with...

    Re: Super box making on the commercial level

    I think that Jim and sqkcrk have pretty much confirmed that building it right the first time saves time and money in the long run. I also glue and nail or staple each box, what is the old saying, "Do...

    Re: Another bee kill from spraying?

    Mine are south of Oslo Road, just west of 95. This is the second time from the same grower. They destroyed 76 hives in March when the sprayed Admire while the trees were in full bloom. I was not...

    Re: Another bee kill from spraying?

    Very good point on the drift and other crops. Well, the grove is surrounded by eucalyptus trees and they are in bloom. Would this be considered out of label application? I inspected hundreds of...

    Re: Another bee kill from spraying?

    Good point Jim, certainly there is a link between the Admire and the bee kill, although the grove company and the chemical company are contesting that theory. Samples were taken yesterday by the...

    Unfortunately the State doesn't work on weekends. Westerfelt has been contacted and AES is being called. I am very cognizant of the sampling procedures, I will be sending my own samples as well.

    Re: How do YOU mix 50 gallons of syrup?

    Re: Requeening during a honey flow

    Sounds a bit extreme to kill off all the queens. You should consider making walk away splits and increasing your numbers.
