  1. Re: going rate for pollination of Alfalfa going to seed

    Rwurster I would guess the average would be 70 lbs. honey bees would rather work easier plants that alfalfa. A big factor is the weather. Too cold, no nectar. Too dry no nectar.
  2. Re: going rate for pollination of Alfalfa going to seed

    James, knock on wood, I don't have any unexpected losses overwintering outside. The next six weeks will be prime time for hive losses.
  3. Re: going rate for pollination of Alfalfa going to seed

  4. Re: Sundance Pollen Trap | Kelly's / BM / BetterBee

    Sundance traps only remove 50% of the pollen coming in. You don't need to worry about the bees not keeping pollen for their own use.

    Re: Pollen Trap Info

    With a Sundance there is no timing involved as it only collects about 50% of the pollen coming in.

    Buy the Sundance that goes on top. Why can't you use the Sundance that goes on the bottom?

    You are mistaken if you believe that you can "grab the landowner some honey anytime they want".

    Re: Canadian effects of exchange rates

    Ya it's best that everyone just keep their bees on their own side of the border. We are doing fine by leaving things just the way they are.

    Ryan, in theory your price makes sense but there always seems to be something or someone that manages to get the price raised up in Canada.

    Re: Online Master Beekeeper course

    Re: Varroa Still a Major Challenge?

    You are right Ian. The ontario beekeepers association said that it was neonics killing all the bees. They never said anything about mites. Hmm😳
