    Re: question for dr. latshaw aka jsl

    The portion of the colony with the Queen has very few foragers, they return to the cell builder, that is why it needs stores/feeding.

    Re: question for dr. latshaw aka jsl

    That Brother Adam fed his Bees is not in question. He did. He tells us how much, how he mixed the syrup and what type of a feeder he used.

    air cooling, don't think it will help much. The water cooled models work best.

    Re: FGMO fogger for varroa

    I fogged with FGMO and thymol for a season. Never again.
    On my list of mite treatments, that's second from bottom. Pure FGMO is rock bottom.
    Its a waist of time and money.
  16. Re: 30% overwintering losses...is that accurate?

    I can't agree more. When I started beekeeping I lost every hive for two years running (as you know Bernhard). I still hear "that if you loose more than 3 % over winter, you are not a beekeeper." I...

    I wont open a hive once it's dark, so I can't use quite a few of the other treatment methods if I am late home from work. But I can pop the vaporizer in and treat. Works well for me.
