  2. Re: My (alternative) theory of the Bush Miracle

    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...
  3. 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...

    I see no reason at all to think Mr Bush is anything other than an honorable, truthful person. I am perfectly willing to accept that he maintains his bees treatment free and sees roughly a 10% colony...

    Re: Soybean Growers

    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. ...

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

    Re: Making formic acid fume board

    "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.

    Re: Why knowingly catalyze a bee apocalypse?

    It is real easy to blame farmers for pesticide use. So maybe it just might be of interest to see figures on who actually uses a few pesticides.
