    Re: The Australian Distraction Defense

    Hey Oldtimer, there is no need for any 'apologies' - you haven't done anything 'wrong' in my eyes. I know zip about Manuka honey - I was as surprised as you that it is being sold in both countries. ...

    Re: The Australian Distraction Defense

    I have no idea.
    Maybe you should look at your varroa treatment. I have had varroa since 1998 and I cannot recall ever "losing a hive to varroa" since I began Integrated Pest Management back in...

    I have tried to find ANY logic or thread of meaning in the above statement - but it is as meaningless and substanceless as a 'bucketful of smoke'.

    For goodness sake - Julian Little is Bayer's Chief Propagandist! What do you think he's going to say? He's the manufacturer of the worst bee-killing pestiticides on the planet. Are you seriously...
