    Re: Diatomaceous Earth (DE) for SHB Control

    What about putting glue boards under your SBB? Or making traps with glue boards in them? I've never had the problem you are having but I am sure one day I will. Plus if you have a mouse problem it...

    Re: Diatomaceous Earth (DE) for SHB Control

    I use DE. It will work. I doubt it mutates them. But it is a temporary solution IMO. We are collectively looking for a long term solution. As an option for dealing with them now, yes. Dealing with...

    Re: Diatomaceous Earth (DE) for SHB Control

    Here is another solution for the SHB in your hive. You will still have to deal with the ones outside your hive.

    Until the wind blows and sends a dust cloud up through your hive, assuming you have a SBB.

    Also if it gets wet it is no good. You will have to reapply it.

    DE will also kill your bees. I would strongly suggest you do not put it in your hives. Different grades are made. You can buy food grade DE.

    Re: Bee Preferred Entrance Height

    Don't know if the bees care but mice, skunks, opossums like it at ground level. Until I shot the skunks. Now they are all top entrances, your welcome Michael Bush.

    glyphosate

    Any studies that say if this is what it does to humans it does not do the "same" to honey bees?

    I actually like you Ian, we are polar opposites, you don't get offended and you take care of your family. Obviously you are a good man. Good luck with your farming, hope your yeilds are high.
  10. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    I'm not saying your farm does not look great. Its your land God gave it to you to manage. If it works for you keep doing it. We all have our own ways, ideas, and theories. Mine is chemical free and...
  11. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    I'd rather lose all of my crop and learn something than use chemicals. I'd rather lose all of my bees and learn something than use chemicals. I put junk into my ground in the past thinking it was the...
  12. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    LOL! A healthy productive diverse landscape and a modern day farm, oxymoron? Roundup has nothing to do with crop diversity, you are correct. It is the difference between no-till and a plow and disc....

    Find me a manufacturer that makes a tractor cab that is going to protect you and I will show you a liar.

  15. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    But your not wrong. Diversity is the best way to prevent our problems and the farmers problems.
  16. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    By better weed control you mean round-up. They can keep using the chemicals until their land is deemed a hazmat zone and all of their off spring dies from birth defects. Worms are natural aerators...
  17. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    Ian, why not throw clover in there? Its a great crop to add nitrogen, plus green manure has never been proven to hurt your soil.
  18. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    North America is the only country that uses HFCS in everything we consume. Plus we burn the crap in our gas engines. I cannot remember the last time I talked to a mechanic and he said that dumping...
  19. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    Pesticides are the band-aid to the problem. Do the same pests target corn, hay crop, soybeans? I'm not into traditional crops of my area anymore. I don't agree in the way crops are planted. The old...
  20. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    And anhydrous ammonia is good for you. Half of the people that use it farm the other half make crystal meth out of it. But when you plant corn then soybeans, corn then soybeans year after year what...
  21. Re: NEONICATOIDS ..........And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you

    Yes the soil is out of balance. Thats what happens when you don't rotate your crops and give it a rest. Thats why it takes anhydrous ammonia to get anything to grow.

    KPeacock, my dimensions are for using a router. You are correct for a table saw that is not using a dado. I find the router much more efficent to use. It does take some practice and you will bust...

    Re: Question for the Wood working Guru's

    Since you want the frame rest to be .375 x .625 you would want to use a minimum of .625 or .75 straight bit with your fence depth set at .625 and the table lift set so the cutter of the bit is .375...

    Re: Town Considering Banning Beekeeping

    I'm allergic to bees. I carry an EpiPen but that does not mean you are going to die. This is out of pure ignorance on the subject.
