Does anyone have the info for any manufacturers for a super lift - one that lifts honey supers to working height at the uncapper
Isnt Taktic an amitraz based livestock treatment, amitraz in a bulk form so to speak? It cannot be shipped into canada legally
The CFIA opinion on pg 55 of the risk assessment is formed on the basis that the natural risk of contamination from bees in the border regions will not be as substantial and would also be contained...
The 2013 Risk assessment does not provide new scientific evidence - the results were the same conclusion as the 2003 assessment.
Key risk factors considered in the assessment are :
First year wintering in this yard - no worries of not enough snow cover here. It may be June before that mountain melts
That is Jan15 & Mar 01
We run 9 frames in brood boxes and honey supers. I actually find it easier to manipulate frames since there is just a bit more room to move frames over to pull one out and less rolled bees., less...

The talk for the RFID equipment was directed at tracking individual colonies and information about them. Queen origin, install date, treatments etc etc. It would be good on the...

Under Section 160 of the Health of Animals Act - the key wording is 'will cause or likely to cause disease or the spread of disease.
Its the second possibility I mentioned that keeps migratory beekeepers from lobbing heavily to open the boarder. Do you think the Almond growers would welcome another half million Canadian...
I have read the report and I for one, think that the decision to keep the border closed was the right one. The availability of packages from the US would be a short term gain for the potential of...
I have followed this thread and a couple things came to my mind - anyone else can feel free to comment on this as well:
1. You can make as many nucs as you wish but eventually you will have to deal...
Here is a link to the Canadian supplier and the recommended administration methods.
I did this with introducing a virgin into a queenless nuc just a couple weeks ago. Not my usual practice but it turned out ok. I put her on an outside frame with a handful of bees and by the time...
1600lbs from 11 hives or 145lb average. Up from last year's 100lb avg.
I find it very economical. Mann Lake provides free shipping within the US and I get it shipped to an address just across the border from me so I can just drive over and pick it up. Out of the many...
Why not just use plastic plugs to pop in the hole after you are done feeding?
