    Re: My bumble bees

    This is fascinating. Maybe more people will keep bumblebees, now that they're getting some attention in the media. I wonder about the bee diseases bumblebees are facing. I wonder if some of the...

    That's a great website, and great what you're doing. Thank you so much for sending the link.

    I hadn't realized that all of the extensions were linked together online, and I hadn't been to that...
  4. Re: European Foulbrood: Your experience with Tylan?

    Peter: The law in Illinois is to burn all hives with AFB, so surely I wouldn't recommend a shook swarm - and thinking about it, I don't see why bees couldn't carry AFB with them when shaking onto new...
  5. Re: European Foulbrood: Your experience with Tylan?

    Chuckle, chuckle. The more I learn, the less I know. There are a lot of ways to interpret the bees and their ailments, that's for sure.

    We share the same climate - I'm not far from you. If you had...
  6. Re: European Foulbrood: Your experience with Tylan?

    Peter, I've found that PMS can look like EFB. Sometimes EFB only shows minor symptoms, just a few random dying larva. Or sometimes PMS can makes several frames look pretty raggedy and shotgun with...

    What d'ya know, Deknow, I never noticed that (never have used Tylan myself). I've just looked at it in the Dadant catalog, it says "use for foulbrood" and doesn't differentiate between one or the...

  9. Re: European Foulbrood: Your experience with Tylan?

    This is true to a degree. That's why it can help to send a sample to Beltsville. It can also hurt to send a sample to Beltsville, because sometimes you get a "No Disease Found" report, and one year...

  11. Re: How many times have you been stung? By the same Bee!

    It seems like some bees know better than to use the whole stinger...
  12. European Foulbrood: Your experience with Tylan?

    It appears that the general consensus on Beesource is "Tylan doesn't work on European Foulbrood." Some beekeepers still recommend Tylan, though, and say that some strains of EFB are resistant to...
