  2. Re: Can you please sign this petition regarding Neonicotinoids

    Anyone pushing a ban on a chemical should have an ACCEPTABLE, PROVEN SUBSTITUTION to suggest, to even have a voice at the table, in my opinion.

  3. Re: Brushy Mountain Oxalic Acid Webinar - Randy Oliver

    I have not actually compared the PH but I am quite sure that Coke a cola, or a bite out of an orange or lemon is WAY MORE acetic than 3.4% oxalic / syrup solution.
    That is one of the things that I...
  4. Re: Brushy Mountain Oxalic Acid Webinar - Randy Oliver

    Mike, I'm glad to give you my answer to your question, but remember that beekeeping is local so the Oregon dates that give you may be of no value in Ohio.

    Thanks, Jim.
    Seems like most of us out yonder have 4:88 final drive.
    My new rig will as well.

    Several years ago, I decided that I would take a couple of pallets of bees, place them behind my barn and then feed them nothing but peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

    At this point in the year, the answer is always YES.

    Re: Moving Hives from CO to CA

    Your truck loaded with 96 hives IS NOT under 16000 lbs unless your hives are NOT hives , but rather BOXES!
    Almond growers do not rent "boxes" for $180.00.

    Re: Moving Hives from CO to CA

    If you don't have a DOT# in WA you can load any amount on your truck? Really?
    If I were you, I would load 408 hives on your F-350 and save the trucking expense.

    Seriously, here's the problem:...

    Re: Moving Hives from CO to CA

    I don't think so.
    How much does your truck weigh empty?
    What is the GVWR?
    How much does your truck weigh with 96 hives smashing it into the ground?

    Maybe a misprint? Did you mean to say F-550?...
  17. Re: whats wrong??? half the hive outside?????

    Yes. What JRG13 said!
    Count your blessings; you have a strong hive.
    Get your mites under control, keep the nutritional level high, and you are in good shape.

    The switch on the motor allows you to clean the slide without the flail running.
    Sometimes a bit of wax or dried honey will cause the slide to bind where it goes through the bushings.

    If you are dead set on folding up the hives for winter, here is my suggestion:
    Roll a wheelbarrow across the yard from the hives.
    Dump two buckets of soapy water in the wheelbarrow.
