    I love my Ultra Breeze suit that I bought several years ago. I hated the price but I think the quality will pay off in the long run. I'm sure the one you mentioned is imported. That doesn't mean...

    Re: Why is shipping not common anymore?

    I agree the postal service is a joke in regard to priority. While they do "insure" bees - good luck getting a claim filed in a timely matter. I mailed a queen to a guy in Texas. It went to Miami...

    Re: Not clear why colony died

    I would lean toward varroa and/or varroa related viruses. You did a good inspection job . Hang in there - you are learning.

    Re: OA Vaporization during summer

    Well I have the vaporizer and the OA. If it ever stops this ice and snow, I think I'll do a test run and see how long it takes the OA to vaporize. Assuming that is ok as long as I stay far away and...

    Re: OA Vaporization during summer

    Thank you all. Ideally, I would like to do nothing and let the bees enjoy themselves. Unfortunately, varroa will not allow that so I need to pick the lesser of evils. Gonna try OA this summer, I...

    OA and brood

    Obviously many of you use OA Vaporization throughout the year even when there is brood. However, I keep reading studies that say it harms brood. Am I missing something ?

    OA Vaporization during summer

    I understand vaporizing OA will only kill the phoretic mites and is most beneficial during a time of no or little brood.
    It can be used in cooler weather than some of the other treatments.

    Re: Treating new bee packages

    hmmm, I've always thought package bees should have fewer mites than purchasing a nuc or full hive with brood involved. I've never used OA, it sounds interesting.
