    Re: Is it necessary to get stung?

    Why Would the epipen be ineffective if its stored in the truck? I have yards that are far enough away that if I didn't bring it with I may as well not have it at all.

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    The plant that the county sprayed was knotweed which I saw my bees working last night. Does the herbiside get into the nectar? If so, what does that effect if anything when its fed to the larva?...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    So if a plant is in bloom and then sprayed with Roundup or Imazapyr, what little honey the bees do collect, would it be cantaminated? I would think so but don't know so.
