  1. Re: Kelley news letter says: don't feed your bees GMO sugar!

    Do you have a GPS of any type? Does your cell phone act as a GPS which many do? Then perhaps you are not as safe with constant time as you think you are.

    My question is directly on topic and has...
  2. Re: Kelley news letter says: don't feed your bees GMO sugar!

    Logic assumes some rudimentary level of education or logic becomes meaningless. For example most people would say it is logical for a clock to run at exactly the same rate on top of a mountain as it...

    Re: Dead hive, mites?

    Here are all the questions you need. Answers to these questions will tell you if it was AFB, EFB, starved, starved because they ate themselves into a corner in winter and could not move to honey, or...

    Re: Dead hive, mites?

    What was your mite count by an alcohol wash last July 15 in mites per 100 bees? How about Sept 1?

    During summer at any time did you look carefully for bees crawling on the ground up to 50 feet...

    whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering, or GE.

    Re: New package - treat or not?

    1. I am assuming there will be some mites in the packages. Is this a valid assumption, or should I verify before treating?

    You will have mites.

    2. Treatment is most effective when there is...
  7. Re: Kelley news letter says: don't feed your bees GMO sugar!

    1. Exactly where do you think the genes for Roundup Ready and BT came from? Both of those genes were natures inventions. Neither of them was man made. Both could in theory have been moved into...
  8. Re: Kelley news letter says: don't feed your bees GMO sugar!

    You simply show you have no concept at all about classic breeding and all the DNA that is moved from species to species in classic breeding when you say you think it is safe and GMOs are not safe. ...
  9. Re: Kelley news letter says: don't feed your bees GMO sugar!

    If GMO is so inherently bad I suppose it is only fair to point out that each and every one of us humans is a brand new GMO experiment that has never before existed. We were converted to a brand new...

    Re: Does June / July Nucs survive ? NJ

    You can easy enough build up a one frame nuc with a laying queen on July 1 to over winter strength. There are only two things you need to do. 1. The day you get the nuc install an apivar strip to...

    Re: Lost Them!!!

    Did you do a mite count before and after treatment? Did you do any mite counts over the summer? I am talking real counts not some nonsense about sticky boards as sticky board numbers are close to...

    Re: Poster Child

    This illustrates a total lack of even rudimentary understanding of the pesticide registration process as well as the whole field of toxicology. Yes, in large amounts all chemicals can kill you. ...

    Re: They are all dead...

    No one can tell you if you should spend more money. You object to a flat out answer of mites so I will try and state it differently. With about 95% probability most or all of your hive deaths trace...

    Just about everything is more than one single mutant. If you took genetics more than 20 years ago you likely were taught eye color (blue vs brown) is a one gene difference and two blue eyed parents...

    Re: Resistant mites: a doubt

    There are lots of genetic combinations that potentially lead to resistance. Resistance happens when one of several things happens. It could be some mutation or combination of mutations results in...
  17. Re: Is Hygienic behavior sufficient to suppress Varroa?

    You can never say impossible as sooner or later the right combination of mutants will come along. We might, or might not have all the needed mutants today. No way to tell.

    But, I think there are...

    Re: Ozone to treat acariasis (varroa)?

    Ozone is extremely reactive. In the presence of all the wax and honey and bees in a hive it would have a half life of milliseconds, before it was destroyed by chemically reacting with something. ...

  21. Re: Why did my hive die? Little white/yellow balls on bees.

  23. Re: Feeding bees is harmful... do u agree? research article

    Probably what you are seeing in this survey is that many of the hives fed were sick, mite infested hives. Some may also have been mite free but queenless. They needed feeding because they were well...
  24. Re: Feeding bees is harmful... do u agree? research article

    I know of no evidence that favors honey from nectar over sugar if both are well ripened. Actually, I think honey is fine as long as it is good honey and as long as they have it in adequate amounts. ...
  25. Re: Feeding bees is harmful... do u agree? research article
