    HBH or Pro Health??

    Which do you prefer? Honey Bee Healthy or Pro Health? Is there any real difference between them? I've only used HBH but I'm thinking about trying Pro Health if it's basicly the same thing.

    Re: planting for next season

    I purchased a 50# bag of Buckwheat seed from our feed store. On the label it just said common variety. It is an actual crop seed but I planted it as a food plot. It was .75 cents a pound.

    Re: planting for next season

    You can always try borage or buckwheat. Buckwheat you can get up to three blooms from and I've read that buckwheat can help bees produce 150lbs of honey per acre.

    Re: Do honeybees pollinate tobacco?

    When you grow tobacco you are supposed to break the top out before it flowers. So if tobacco farmers do this then the bees wouldn't really get a chance to work it. I'm sure not everyone gets out to...
