    Re: Best grafting tool?

    For me the best one by far is home made from a plastic drinking straw. Just take the straw and cut at a 20 or 25 degree angle with respect to the straw axis. Cut with a really sharp knife. One...

    Top entrance hives may be more humid as humid air is heavier. This is just one of a hundred factors that may effect mites. MB says for him SC was just the tipping point. Where is your tipping...
  14. Re: FDA rules on honey - April 8, 2014

    This is a very hard rule to enforce unless the contamination is gross. The reason is there is only one chemical analysis, that I know of, that is applicable to detect contamination with non honey...

    Wayne and Corsay are 40+ year old genetics and likely no farmers grow them any more except perhaps for a novelty. After 40 more years of plant breeding the nectar yield of soybeans should be nil. ...

  19. Re: Four Common Pesticides, Their Mixtures and a Formulation Solvent in the Hive

    "I don't see the down side to the fume board"

    A fine of up to $25,000 or one year in jail for each use sounds like a down side to me. What you are suggesting is against the law.
