    Re: Has Seed Coating Changed? CCD gone for Good!

    It is a rehash of studies that were performed in 2009, 2010, and 2011. It's been dragged out several time before.

    Not saying it is damning, but as has been pointed out time and time again,...

    How many times is that study going to be dragged out? The only thing that it proves is that feeding bees a sugar solution that is dosed with pesticides, harms/kills bees. They same results were...

    Re: Has Seed Coating Changed? CCD gone for Good!

    I don't think that excessive planter dust is a misapplication. It is a result of the current planting technology. When Bayer, or whomever, releases the new seed planting technology, it is accepted...

    Just guessing, but 75% of most people would not know either definition.

    Anyway, I based my "most people" comment on a Google search. A quick scan of the top 4 pages shows 25 hits for the banana...

    Re: Has Seed Coating Changed? CCD gone for Good!

    CCD is a catch-all phrase for “I lost my colonies and I don’t know why”. I don’t believe that there has ever been a consensus as to what it is and how it is caused.



    You can spend millions,...

    But now we have a real dilemma on our hands. When most people see the word “plantain” they think about the banana variety, not the weed. Let’s suppose that of the 612 people that have viewed this...

    Re: Has Seed Coating Changed? CCD gone for Good!

    Not much of a study if they let the beekeepers report there own "observations", eh? I can't believe Health Canada took they time to do that level of analyses on such lousy data.

    Re: Has Seed Coating Changed? CCD gone for Good!

    If CCD actually exists, the answer in no. The time, money and resources are just starting to get spent by Bayer. It's way too early to see any affects. What kind of impact are you going to see...

    Biologically it is not hibernation, but I could see how people think that bees hibernate. They stay quite in their hives most of the winter, so it isn't too much of a stretch to think they are...

    Do you even logic? You are confusing field trials with actual use of the dust control technology.

    Kansas the "Free State". No registration or fees of any kind. We don't even have a state inspector. Ironic since the official state insect in none other that the honey bee!
