    Re: Beekeepers suing EPA

    I would agree with that. But even the 5% mark is highly variable depending on how much water has been available to the plant. But that also doesn't make guttation attractive just as "a water...

    Yes, as I am saying I commonly observe this. As does everyone ELSE who has ever grown corn or who doesn't have some strange "I love pesticides" blinders on. And no, that was not the only...

    Re: Beekeepers suing EPA

    That would make sense if the conversation was actually two-sided vs. a bunch of pro-pesticide'ers saying such as, "Bees ignore corn." and "Bees don't drink guttation." I'm not going to waste my time...

    Guttation droplets are not a water source. They are a nectar source. They have the same molecular make-up of nectar - high in sugar, various enzymes, etc. And even if someone showed a THOUSAND...

    And your point is? Nobody's claimed that HFCS was made from guttation droplets. However, there's precisely zero question that the bees feed from guttation droplets, and these studies show the mass...

    Re: Beekeepers suing EPA

    Yes, this stuff is really basic. I agree. Yet you seem to misunderstand it. Take a look at the following study:

    Could you please link these studies? According to this study, the numbers exceed 500 ppb. Perhaps you're thinking 1-5 ppm? Which would actually be around the levels that they used in this study. ...

    Then you too are confused on the subject. Nobody's claiming that the GMOs (which have their own sets of problems) are producing the Neonicotinoids. What is fact, however, is that Monsanto and Bayer...

    Re: Beekeepers sue EPA

    I would love to see a class action lawsuit against Monsanto, Bayer, the EPA, and the FDA backed by EVERY BEEKEEPER IN THE U.S. Take them for the few billion dollars they've cost the beeks.
  18. Re: Thought hive was queen less so ordered a queen. What to do now?

    Interesting read! And it does make me feel a bit better. I forget how large, say, state parks can be. So hopefully we do have pockets of the feral bees throughout the U.S. that we can use to...

    I certainly hope you're right, but my own anecdotal evidence in Virginia is grim. In 4 years now, I haven't caught a single swarm. I haven't gotten a single call, despite being on multiple swarm...

    Good find! Somehow the fact that they have different sleep patterns as they get older just makes them that much more human-like to me.

    Are you in a position to experiment? My guess is that they'd tear down the cell and kill the superseding queen. Unless she's old enough to pipe, in which case I suspect the current queen might even...

    Sorry, but I do get spun up when someone snarkily tells me I'm wrong, then insists on it, when I'm very clearly not. I've tried to drop it. How about we leave it at that?

    How cold is "cold?" I've never seen bees beard in the cold. Mine are indoors when it gets into the 70's (F). That must be one heckuva strong hive.
