  1. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    Hi all

    I thought we were discussing Apiary inspection in NYS. These sorts of personal comments do not further the conversation one jot. That's it for me, if anyone wants to discuss issues, you...

    That's funny! You know nothing about what I have been doing!
  3. Re: N.Y. Apiary Industry Advisory Committee Mtng notes 6/19/2014

    Well, let's start. Suppose you have an old farm house that the cellar is so old it's caved in and the beams are so rotten they can't support weight. What constructive suggestion could you make? None....

    Aaron, Pat and I were run out of ESHPA. That's why I feel the way I do.
  5. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    I am sorry, but it does matter what you look at, and how you look at it. What you see depends entirely where and how you look. That is the problem with bias, you look where you want for what you...

    I'm pretty sure they are not looking for volunteers. The members are hand picked by the people already there.

    Hive registration:

    If they outlaw beekeeping, then only outlaws will have bees!

  8. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    Actually, I don't see anything wrong with registration, per se. I registered in California and I am registered in NY. I support bee inspection, too. What I object to is the way this is being shoved...
  9. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    Absolutely. There was a long, interesting piece in the New Yorker a week or so ago about surveys and polls, how inaccurate they are and the results of using them to guide policy and public opinion. ...
  10. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    Frankly, Mark, at this point I think it's nobody's dam business if I or my neighbors have honey bees. Do they have a census on who grows apples in their yards?
  11. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    Hi Mark

    I am sorry that I am not at the meeting, so we could talk in person about these matters. I am no longer a member of ESHPA, although I am willing to consult as someone who has been keeping...
  12. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    All of the commercial beeks? Only a small percentage of them are ever at these meetings. Most don't have time for this stuff. The vocal few almost never accurately represent anybody but themselves...
  13. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    You can send the stuff to me, I can edit, compress, do anything in the world with scans and pdf files.
  14. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    This is hot air. I have a copy of the law and there is nothing in it about registration. That's why the law was passed a few years back to require beekeepers to register, it was not a requirement....
  15. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    Antibiotics are not going away. They are talking about delisting terramycin for bees, but it will remain on the market for other livestock, so anyone can buy it. Tylosin will probably remain...
  16. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    Jon Ryan was an inspector in the 1970s. Then, when he had his own bees, he didn't want inspection. Until one of his neighbors gave him a case of AFB. I was able to persuade the neighbor beekeeper to...
  17. Re: new york AIAC Mtng notes for the meeting on 6/19/2014

    That's pretty funny. That's exactly what he did for years. He had almost no bees in his own county, only other counties where the best locations were



    Typical government tactic. We are going to...
  18. Re: Why should people care about the honey bee?

    The Estonian poem was meant to reflect many things. The main one is loss. People all over the world are feeling great loss at this time, & that is reflected in our own experience of loss. The loss of...
  19. Re: Why should people care about the honey bee?

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, here is another point of view as to why the public should care about bees:

  20. Re: Why should people care about the honey bee?

    I guess I don't get it.
  21. Re: Why should people care about the honey bee?

    I am sorry, but I don't understand what you are saying. Would you care to elaborate?
  22. Re: Why should people care about the honey bee?

    To understand somewhat better the symbolism of this poem, the reader must remember at least three facts: (a) apiculture is one of the peaceful pursuits of the Estonians, a basically agricultural...

    Re: Sustainable Apiary?

    Dean and I have disagreed on many things over the years, but here we concur. This is not the way to address grievances. My chief intent was to stick up for Larry, as he has devoted his life to bee...
