    Consensus seems to be that Charley's idea isn't that great, & you wasted $75.
  15. Re: What is the best way to permanently mark a beehive box?

    The RF tags wouldn't do any good unless someone with a reader checked the thieves apiary.
    Some brands you can see from 100' away.
  16. Re: New beekeeper First time dealing with aerial crop dusting

    They use helicopters to crop dust near one of our apiaries. Two years & no hive kills yet.
    All the farmers know where the bees are located.

    Re: I think my bees are preparing to swarm

    AFB is the nasty one.
