  3. Bayer Announces New "Bee-Friendly" Systemic Pesticide

    For those who suggest that banning neonics in order to protect pollinators means taking a huge step backward and will result in more bee deaths, Bayer is at least attempting to utilize bio-tech in a...

    Re: Time Article

    So, just to be clear, Randy Oliver claims that neonics being linked to increased colony mortality is an "urban myth that has never been demonstrated or confirmed in any study?"

    Wow, no wonder the...

    Re: Time Article

    I'm glad Randy isn't a "neonics cause everything extremist." I don't agree with that position either. However, I still think that when people start using corporate jargon like "crop protection...

    I don't think anyone is saying "don't believe Randy Oliver." I know I'm not. But what people ARE saying is that he is being funded by the neonics industry and many of his comments draw a picture of...

    I think Randy is very knowledgeable and he does make good points about the need for solid science in order to get to the bottom of CCD.

    However, in reading through his website he comes across as...

  11. Re: Everyone calm down, there is no “bee-pocalypse”

    Actually BlueDiamond, it would appear that the AIA and USDA don't agree with your rosey outlook on the state of the bees in the U.S.:

    "Preliminary survey results indicate that 31.1% of managed...

    Watering the Bees

    So, despite our reputation for being soggy, this time of year in Oregon it's actually quite dry. We have a small stream that runs behind our cabin, but it's now dry, so I've been putting out some...

    Re: First Honey Harvest in Oklahoma

    Looks great! I did my first harvest 2 weeks ago, got about 2.5 gallons. I still can't believe how light in color the honey is, and the flavor is just amazing....Blackberries are our big flow here, so...

    Re: Why I Like Cedar.

    Gorgeous hives! I picked up a ton of red cedar early this summer, and I've built two of my KTBH's out of it. I really like the natural wood color and don't like painting my hives.

    Bee Soup...

    When I was in our hot tub about a week ago, a fair number of bees were coming over to get a drink of water. This time of year it's pretty dry here--even the stream behind our house is dry. I leave...
  17. Re: Everyone calm down, there is no “bee-pocalypse”

    Guilty Barry! I do smoke the occasional cigar--like 5 or 6 a year, but my profession is not one that allows for smoking anything "Eugenian." :)
  18. Re: Everyone calm down, there is no “bee-pocalypse”

    No problem Bruce! Eugene is indeed hippie heaven, but that's one of the things I kind of like about it. I can assure you that if you ever saw a photo of me you would never use my name and the word...
  19. Re: Everyone calm down, there is no “bee-pocalypse”

    Lol, no, I'm not saying that Barry. I don't think neonics are the single cause of anything (well, except hive kills from planter dust)--but I think they are having a negative impact on non-target...
  20. Re: Everyone calm down, there is no “bee-pocalypse”

    I see, so since I live in Eugene, I must be a hippie, right? Lol, you know nothing about me Bruce, but feel free to cast aspersions and generalizations around if that makes you feel better! :)
  21. Re: Everyone calm down, there is no “bee-pocalypse”

    Lol, my statistics prof always told me that you could twist the numbers any way you want in order to support your view/agenda.

    While it is true that the number of colonies has stayed roughly the...
  22. Re: New Study Shows Bees Become Disoriented After Neonics Exposure

    I'm not sure what your point is relative to the year the article was published--data is data. I do know that there were some follow up studies/testing that found that not ALL the CCD colonies tested...

  24. Re: New Study Shows Bees Become Disoriented After Neonics Exposure

    I agree wholeheartedly Jeff! I've searched for some data on this, but have not been able to find much. Of course a post-mortem analysis is made much more difficult by the fact that researchers still...
  25. Re: How do i stop or at least slow my hives from needing to be split?

    I'm a newbie too, but if you leave them alone won't they just swarm? I mean they seem pretty self-regulating in that manner, i.e. if you only have two hives then when they get too crowded they swarm...
