    Re: Viability of swarms?

    I get them if they are easy and relatively nearby. I always ask for a photo of the swarm to be texted or emailed to me. That hard learned lesson has saved my posterior from a lot of wasted time...

    Re: Beginners Beekeeping Textbook

    I always recommend Backyard Beekeeper by Kim Flottum. If he's not gotten at least a couple dozen sales from my recommendations I'd be shocked.

    Re: Ontario restricts use of neonicotinoids

    Looks like grain prices will be going up next year. I truly feel for the farmers up there. They're to reduce neonic use by 80%, but they are also supposed to also have a 15% decrease in the amount...
  4. Re: NY Times video looking back at the CCD scare

    Agreed. A calm rational report on the current status of CCD without the sensationalism or hype of spinning an agenda. A refreshing watch, done by someone who did their homework.

    No you're not. You're trolling. You needn't try to contact me again. You've joined the very select ranks of people (3 total) who's posts I've blocked as they aren't worth my time reading. Have a...

    Re: African hive inspection

    I can't imagine having bees like that. I guess it's all relative but I'm going to pass on getting some of those queens for my own hives. However, I've sure got a few folks I'd like to get them drop...

    Ahhh,.... there it is. You expect others to adapt to your utopian view. Anyone who doesn't is blindly accused of spreading death and/or raping the world?

    Come on. It's not that bad. Go...

    Those plans were my pleasure.

    Be careful agreeing with others. You may get called a twin, arrogantly believed incapable of a well thought out response. In this case possibly a triplet. ;)

    Prove where the MCHM comes from and there may be a case. We're beekeepers though, talking about bee apiaries. You're going to have to prove who used what in what citrus groves and if...

    I had that happen with my hives last year in one of my apiaries. 5 hives with Apivar. I left it in at that point to see what would happen. Long story short all 5 hives survived the winter in good...

    Expert opinions? I don't know if any of us would qualify as experts. We're all individuals who are beekeepers with our own 2 cents. They don't mean jack scientifically though. What you're asking...
