    Re: Vitex negundo seeds ?

    Re: Recommendation for glass jars?

    If you have a Big Lots store in your area, they usually have the best price. Quart jars are the best buy for the price. Pints do not cost half of the price of a quart jar.

    Does anyone have experience with the use of the Cyclone shown in Bee Culture this month? It sounds too good to be true that it is a cure all?

    I will never use that cr__ again. It is too much of a pain with having to have a spacer in place and the killing of bees is something I don't need.
