  5. Re: Possible trap-out opportunity in the Lynchburg VA area.

    Guess no one is interested. I had also given them the contact information for the Piedmont Beekeepers Assn. in Lynchburg. Maybe they will find someone.
  6. Re: Possible trap-out opportunity in the Lynchburg VA area.

    Any guesses as to why they swarmed into the tree, then went back into the hive?? And what went with the queen that had laid the eggs that were in the hive on the 30th? Did they kill her? If so,...

    I have a question on Apiguard, having never read up on it or anything, Is it simply a high concentration of Thymol (an essential oil)? And if so, is this something that biological beekeepers would...
