    Re: They don't even try to hide it.

    But why then did you say, "Still doesn't explain why there is Chinese labeling on Canadian store shelves"?

    There is Chinese labeling because thy are trying to attract Chinese costumers.

    Re: They don't even try to hide it.

    There is Chinese/English labeling on some honey that is sold in North America. Just as there is French/English labeling in Quebec, Spanish/English labeling in the US, and even Farsi/English labeling...

    Re: They don't even try to hide it.

    Like most bi-lingual labeled product, I would imagine the Chinese characters say the same thing as the English words: Pure, Natural, Honey from Canada. No.1 White. 1 Kg.

    It's not like the...

    Re: Lawnmower and bees...problem

    I have only been stung on 2 occasions while mowing my yard; each time a single sting to the back of the neck. If I had 20 to 30 bees attack me from 300 yards away, I would really be concerned.

    Re: An oxalic vaporizer that WORKS in 30 sec

    Not a lot of people have access to a machine shop. It's more like this:

    2 glow plugs from Amazon = $18

    It's really hard to tell without additional info/picture/price. How do you plan to disseminate this info?

    Re: Useless tools or beginners luck?

    I don't see how anyone can go without a hive tool. You have to have something to pry the boxes apart and loosen the frames. If you are going to use a chisel or a kitchen knife, you might as well...

    Re: What is raw honey?

    Whipping goes far beyond simple exposure to air. I think that the term "minimally processed" needs to be included in the definition.

    Also, I find it hard to believe that if I put whipped honey...

    Re: What is raw honey?

    I wouldn't call whipped honey raw honey because following changes that occur while whipping the honey:

    1 - mixed with air = oxidation

    2 - seeded with small crystals = change of state (liquid...

    Re: Does syrup ratio really matter?

    Not really.

    5 gallons sugar to 3 gallons water = 5 to 3.5 by weight

    5 pounds sugar to 3 pounds water = 5 to 2.5 by volume

    So you think that this is not a serious issue?

    Serious issues need to be discussed in a serious manner. Not hyperbole, innuendo, and sensationalism as you have provided.

    Re: Bee removal question

    So why cant you disassemble a 4x8 plywood sign? Seems like a ridiculous request. If they want the bees gone, tell them that you have to take the sign apart. How hard could that be?
