    Who is actually being represented?

    You'll find AIAC members are now on the ESHPA Board of Directors, representing migratory interests or their version of it. If there is a vacancy either on AIAC...
  6. Re: Greenpeace, and friends, urge pollinator protection language in Farm Bill.

    This is all anti-chemical feel good legislation with beekeeping being used as the pawn. It is based on the false assumptions that there is a mass die off of bees, and that they died from neonics and...

  10. Re: Avaaz petition taking off - Save America's Pollinators Act

    Feel good legislation, little substance, won't pass but makes them look green.

  11. Re: 3rd Generation Beek Calls It Quits After Huge Losses He Attributes to Neonics and

    "Beekeeping being the stepchild of Agriculture" - that's because of these antics. Where is the proof? Samples were taken and were inconclusive. Why is it only Mr. Doan with all these calamities in...
  12. Re: 3rd Generation Beek Calls It Quits After Huge Losses He Attributes to Neonics and

    Don't get too teary eyed, he said he was getting out 7 years ago. On the government subsidy wagon big time.
    One article has him saying there was nothing he could do to save his bees because of...
  13. Re: Person wants their swarm back - Would you give it to them?

    Her premise is laughable. Did she see it swarm and cluster? This can be a teachable moment. Claiming that a swarm that is not on your property is yours is probably one the oldest scams.

  16. Re: $20 Billion Declining bee populations may lead to significant agricultural losses

    1/3, or 30% is the norm, not a "sudden decline", it's status quo. Nothing sudden, nothing permanent, the losses will be made up just like every other year.
    Many beekeepers still have in their...
  17. Re: Just how many american bee colonies have been killed by neonics?

    I must add that the poster appears to be trolling the US bee forum, and spamming it multiple times daily, with belief dogma, in an attempt to foist a political view on others and effect legislation...
  18. Re: Just how many american bee colonies have been killed by neonics?

    >>Just how many american bee colonies have been killed by neonics?

    Re: Tests Show Most Store Honey Isnít Honey
