    Re: #5 fabric/netting on marking cages

    You guys seem to agree. It is a matter of taking the calipers to the store and just finding something that works. I was hoping for a dealer of fabrics.

    Re: #5 fabric/netting on marking cages

    The mesh needs to have an opening very close to 0.162". Do potato bags have this opening size?

    Does anyone know where to purchase the number 5 fabric/cloth used on the ends of the queen marking cages? I already have #5 hardware cloth but have not been able to locate the netting found on the...

    I'm not sure. Maybe someone with more knowledge about the change of ownership can comment. I just wanted to give a plug for Brian Kulling because my experience was excellent and I think that what...

    Re: Time for newer truck

    I purchased a 24' international flatbed a few years ago and will add my two cents. If you have a forklift you might want to consider a shorter bed and stack the hives two pallets high. Unless you...

    What kind of tank and where does the power come from for the heater? It would take a lot of power to heat a 275 gallon tote??

    Hummerbee

    Has anyone else dealt with the new owner of A&O? My first impressions (see below) are good but I was wondering what others may have experienced.

    My experience with the new owner of Hummerbee ...

    I was looking into this awhile back and a pump dealer indicated that a diaphragm pump might be best with really high solids content. Apparently they self prime and can run dry without harm. Koshin...

    Re: How local is local honey???

    The problem is that customers have been conditioned, often times, to follow commonly used definitions for local produce which are based more on the degradation of produce during shipment and such....

    Re: Monsanto buys Beeologics!

    I understand your concern, but for the moment it is all prefaced with "what if". For me to become at least more concerned I would need more than "what if" - something like a high probability...

    WLC,
    Although I respect your point of view, I am having a difficult time seeing what harm could be done. Worst case scenario the RNAi gets integrated into honeybees and other species, which has...

    Re: Monsanto buys Beeologics!

    Sure you could look at transcripts for AGO2 but that would be limited to a small time window and may not give any time course indications. Another approach would be to use two RNAi's, with one...

    Again, I would have predicted that Remebee would have been statistically better at knockdown over control in field trials if it were to work at all. My own experience with RNAi is that people...

    At first I thought you were pulling my leg because you are targeting a putative RISC complex protein which strikes me as odd plus your sequence is repetitive and has a rather low Tm. If you are...

    I'm not suggesting that going all natural is a bad thing. Going all natural, however, usually means a lot of extra labor and extra risk. Commercial beekeepers can't afford either and would be...

    Re: Monsanto sets its sights on the Honeybee.

    Maybe Monsanto deliberately released IAPV into the US so they could profit from the cure.
