I am a huge fan of Paul Stamets (Fungi Perfecti), but I am afraid all those mushrooms have gone to his head.
Says the self-proclaimed "engineer" who has no engineering degree.
I agree and would have loved to be there recovering some of the bees. That would be pretty exciting.
We have all heard it: when you smoke bees, they think a forest fire is coming and they gorge themselves in preparation to flee. Therefore the reason you don't get stung is that the bees are too...
for the great majority of motorists on I-35, that statement is pretty subjective.

If you have frames of capped honey, either extract them or put them back in the hives for the bees to use. Leave extracted frames and uncapped frames of honey out for the bees to clean up. Once you...
I am leaving my supers on for another week or so to take advantage of the last of the goldenrod.
I don't understand why you would even comtemplate this.

Please define what you consider "Big". Is it anyone who makes a profit or any company that you don't own 51% of the stock? Do you dislike Big Beekeeping (commercial outfits with 5,000+ hives)? ...
The other fall back argument, "We need more testing!". With the exception of a few noisy deniers, the testing is done and there is a scientific consensus the neonics are safe for the environment. ...
