    Different Races

    Somewhere last year, I saw a photo of the queens of the most common races of bees. Very good comparison pictures of them. Now I've lost it. Anyone help?

    Here is an interesting book about medical use of honey. (One of the local hospitals uses a honey product for burns.)

    Re: There has to be a better way (moving hives)

    I have seen a neat -looking block&tackle that fits on the side rail of a pickup. Might try Harbor Freight or Tractor Supply. Wasn't very expensive.

    Epi-Pen

    Got a 2-dose unit of Epi-Pen last year that out-dated in 8 months. I thought it should last at least a year. Does anyone know if it's still any good after more than a year? 2 years?

    Re: Ventilated bottom board

    Exactly what I did the last 3 years. Occasionly I forgot to add the "sticky board" without the "sticky", and they still made it even with temps down to 0-20 degrees!

    Sting Question

    Maybe some of the medical folks could comment on different stings. Is there a difference between the toxin of a honey bee and a red or black wasp?

    Last year, I fed corn bread to some chickens and the bees seemed to really like it. Didn't think about giving them any beans. We may have discovered something! Can we patent it?

    What would be the acceptable maximum 24hr varroa count on a "Sticky Board" after 24 hrs? Have treated with HopGuard for 2 weeks. Will put on 3rd treatment today.
