    Re: Why knowingly catalyze a bee apocalypse?

    What's wrong with finding the root of a problem? Is it pointless to search for an alternative?

    Re: Why knowingly catalyze a bee apocalypse?

    Personally, I've never seen the ramifications of CCD, and my reasoning for this was because I only have one hive that I take extra good care of and is very healthy (and unfortunately very hot). Also,...

    Re: Why knowingly catalyze a bee apocalypse?

    I've got a hive, and its a hell of a hive for education. I'm not gonna get any mites but Ive learned the on hand ins and outs of keeping, but admittedly Im not a major player in the field.

    Sqkcrk- its just a username, don't think much of it.

    What is the issue?
    Do you find that my acceptance of CCD is ignorant?
    Should the ban produce explicit results, we would have an improved...

    A couple years in with one suburban hive. Quite new, but isn't that just denial of CCD as a serious issue?

    Re: Why knowingly catalyze a bee apocalypse?

    CCD is affecting the big beeks though right? I mean feral numbers could go up, which is why the EPA wouldn't be as concerned, but the domesticated population must be suffering enough to cause major...

    Why knowingly catalyze a bee apocalypse?

    Forgive me for my ignorance, but I believe playing the devil's advocate is important before committing oneself to any cause, despite being a beekeeper myself. I'm wondering why the EPA continuously...

    Anybody want to spitball the number of beekeepers in the country? I'm talking urban, rural, suburban, even workers who don't own the bees themselves. Try an estimate at the percent of America's...

    Thanks, it may just be the rambling ideas of an ambitious bored guy. I want to study the compatibility of solitude with honeybees.

    Good point, it's just an experimental idea because the findings could potentially help combat CCD.

    Re: Workers as pets?

    I'd only use 20 maximum, so I'm less worried about the effect on the hive as I am about the time expense.

    Workers as pets?

    I was wondering not for the sake of keeping a bunch or bees as pets, but for the experimental value of the concept, how independent can a bee remain without it's colony? If a few/single bee were...
