    Do what you need to. I have done my best to keep things to the point of this thread. So Please ban me! Only the weak make threats Barry.

    >In particular I found your claim that a particular person hopes it all goes bad for you, to be a false assumption / accusation, confrontational, and obnoxious.

    Congratulations! You have become the very thing you accuse me of.

  4. Re: I don't understand this complaint about treatment free beekeepers

    I don't care if anyone finds me credible. We are expanding on our views and sneering at each other openly without glazed eyes and fake smiles. It is what makes our time so different than before a...
  5. Re: I don't understand this complaint about treatment free beekeepers

    Not here, as long as free/bartered lumber is available. If you don't treat and you allow bees to draw their own comb what else is needed to "run" the show. If I bought new equipment my wife would say...

    Re: Bee hive in the ground

    My first cutout was from an underground box. I didn't have a veil then, just a hooded sweatshirt and the screen off my front door:p I spent about an hour using my crude beevac before I popped the...

    What where the instructions for the use of DDT? To bad nobody followed the guidelines for disbursement on that one.
  10. Re: I don't understand this complaint about treatment free beekeepers

    Forum heros such as Mark tend to be the ones throwing daggers and offer nothing more than one liners and indignation. It is no surprise that he has other venues in which to do the same. I have never...
  11. Re: I don't understand this complaint about treatment free beekeepers

    My legitimate complaint of treated hives is when you can smell mothballs in their honey. A person should be strung up for something like that. Might not be a commonplace treatment but none the less...

    They are dark and small but not until they start foraging. all my young girls are blond when they they go on their first flight. I wish I had more insight into other bees and be able to answer that...

    >Oh my, what can I say, what can I say. Yes, you are right you don't have enough rings on your tree. Yet you believe you can see the whole picture as well as if not better than those who are mighty...
  16. Re: I don't understand this complaint about treatment free beekeepers

    I don't have any backyard hives. Not something I would encourage in my area, another conversation entirely. The fact is, a lot of packages are being shipped far and wide as of late. Think of all the...

    >At our Bee Group meeting last night one of our members reminded me that he had lost 50% of his hives this Winter. He does not use treatments. What would you advise he do going forward?

    Re: Shook out hive to rid laying worker

    What if you move a strong hive to the laying worker location before the shakeout? Whats the risk of the returning laying workers killing the queen?

  21. Re: I don't understand this complaint about treatment free beekeepers

    Back to the thread topic. I think the complaint stems from the knowledge that treatment free beekeeping is sustainable with little to no cost to a beekeeper who is starting fresh and drawing their...
  22. Re: I don't understand this complaint about treatment free beekeepers

    There you go with the typical response anthropomorphizing the bee. Do you really think the hive consist of nothing more than the honey bee?

    Re: "What is Varroa good for?"

    A deep full of composted mulch as a bottom might provide something desirable. I'm sure some beekeeper has tried it:D
  24. Re: I don't understand this complaint about treatment free beekeepers

    It is insane to think a person can create a better model than one that exist within a suitable area in a region and create a "breed" of honeybee for the masses. Adaption happens first, before any...
