    Re: TF and AFB, part deux

    This hive was not weakened. As I said, it was the strongest hive in the yard, 9 years TF without requeening. The robbing event was set off by an inspection that morning or the day before, I don't...

    Re: TF and AFB, part deux

    It's the same scenario I have been here talking about for years. I don't have to believe it, I saw it. I relate my experience. Somebody says something, and I go: "nope, not how it happened for...

    Re: TF and AFB, part deux

    If I were to postulate, I would say that the chances are slim of a treatment-free hive with good hygienic qualities of bringing home an infection.


    I think it's fair to say you don't post any...

    Re: TF and AFB, part deux

    In theory, yes, in practice, no. I have in practice actually burned every hive with AFB that I've come across.

    In fact, that statement was made after the first time I suggested that AFB was not...

    Well, when my associates come back with reports of people impugning my character, it needs to be checked out. Turns out some of it is accurate except for the repeated assertion of my actions being...

    Re: TF and AFB, part deux

    According to the science, it sure is. So we do the same thing we do with varroa which is to let it ride. The resistant stock will survive and thrive and the non-resistant stock won't. And we can...

    It was a gripping gripe. I was griping and they were gripped.

    "Highly significant" that's a scientific term by the way.

    Interesting how nothing else I've ever said has been a quarter as popular. Perhaps I should do it more often.

    You really are scared of something. Not sure what it is. Is it some sort of conspiracy theory thing?

    And I don't know what this nonsense is about "to see what you have to say," like I wasn't...

    Here's the crux of my TF issue with AFB: What would all the bees do if humans weren't around to burn the hives and save their species? The migratory paradigm does more to spread disease and...

    I don't know what that means either. Nobody came to Facebook for me. I didn't sell anybody out. If they did it, they did it to themselves.

    I do have a website. And posting here is like stepping in dog crap. I rarely do it on purpose, but it keeps happening. And the dog crap doesn't appreciate the effort.

    And would you consider AFB rare and devastating? It seems to happen every year (not rare) to a small number of hives (not devastating) and a bunch of beekeepers claim to have developed resistant...

    For myself, I don't see the purpose. If you want to burn them, that's good for all of us, even the equipment manufacturers.

    I've never treated anything.

    I don't recall mentioning varroa killing hives before AFB can. Can you make a case for it?

    I'd find it hard to accept considering that hives don't die that rapidly. How rapidly does a hive have...

    As I pointed out, I was mistaken in the attribution, not the practice. It was another beekeeper, and more than one actually.
