  1. Re: Too late to treat for mites? (North Texas)

    You could you oxalic acid vapor treatment anytime according to Randy Oliver, if I recall correctly.
  2. Re: Oxalic Acid ... soon approved for use in beehives

    Really should not be that big of a deal. If you treated late/early when there's little or no brood studies say you are good for the year. Besides, as with any mite treatment you'd have to treat three...
  3. Re: State of the Bees - Marla Spivak , April 2014

    It is a cruel game. Have a Ph.D. brother-in-law who has done some great research (not in bees). Couldn't get published. Was very puzzled. That is until he made the right 'connection' who told him he...

    Saw this on another thread:

    "Moving hives during the winter often times causes the balling of the queen, depending very much upon how much the bees are jarred during the trip."

    Would like to...

  7. Re: Why are beekeepers not all using vaporized oxalic acid to treat varroa mites?

    Mark,

    I believe OA has been approved for and used in Canada and Europe for quite some time (and they are more strict with pesticides, et. al. that the USA is). On the outside chance you might...

    Re: Reaction to bee sting?

    This is nothing to fool with or second guess. Yes, you can really die from one bee sting. Get to an allergist and get tested.

    I've been to the hospital three times. Once it was from a reaction...

    Re: "Bring Out Your Dead !"

    Yes, it is typical behavior. Hives have caretaker bees. But just like us, some keep the house cleaner than others.

    Re: Buying Equipment online

    Re: Surprised by dead hive

    Not starvation. Still had a candy board on. A little honey left, too.

    Found it odd to have dead bees with pollen on their legs.

  14. Re: Buying established hive, what to look for?

    My experience has been that if he has treated for other than mites and you don't continue the same, the hive has a high likelihood of dying.
