    Re: Two way pallets

    I use two way pallets and I think there are many advantages to using them. They are NOT for the commercial beek that needs the advantages of four way mobility. I use a lift system that I bought in...

    Re: Dr. Jeffery Pettis Steps Down

    Not really sold on the more data theory, probably much more data out there that has not been made public. I will buy the theory that the administration red tape has a lot to do with it. Can't blame...

    Re: Dr. Jeffery Pettis Steps Down

    Something is puzzling here ! I just went back through the info on Pettis testimony during the past couple of years. About a year ago he was convinced that imidicloprids were the problem even at sub...

    I will take this opportunity to give you some first hand info on Imidicloprids and their impact on honeybees. During this past twelve months I have lost over 100 colonies as a direct result of Neonic...

    Cleaning and Sanitizing Frames.

    Old frames can be a problem if not properly cleaned, especially ones that have been attacked by wax moths. Moths in my part of the country can be a real problem in a very short period of time. Once a...

    I can certainly understand being unfulfilled by administration and political rules, also the time spent with family. The concern that I have is that I hope he is not going to work for some chemical...

    Re: Maxant No Drip Valve

    It is a excellent must have for the bottling tank. I have even done modification to a 55 gallon stainless steel drum to accept this valve and I use it to fill feeder jars. I just ordered another one...

    Re: Africanized bees

    I have removed probably hundreds of feral colonies and possibly have seen only a couple of hives that I would consider possibly Africanized. This whole concept is blown all out of proportion.
  13. Re: We made two videos at work for the Florida State Fair

    After viewing the inspection video I must ask you, where did you get that weak hive? That is one bad looking hive, bet it doesn't make it much longer. Next time you people do a demonstration video...

    Re: bees are thriving, not dying

    First of all my friends call me a right wing nut job! I share many views with people like Ted Cruz and Mr. Paul, but this article by Mr. Caruba is troubling. Mr. Caruba has been paid by the New...

    Re: Hat Veil Combo

    The Clear View Veil is the finest veil available IMHO. I have use them all over the years, but this veil with a mesh hat is a great combo. I have several, tie down and zipped styles, they are all...
  16. Re: Florida beekeepers and citrus growers will meet September 18 in Lake Alfred

    You may not be so lucky to be back in the groves. If you knew what was going on in regard to the amount of neonics that were being applied you might just change your mind and go elsewhere to protect...
  17. Re: Florida beekeepers and citrus growers will meet September 18 in Lake Alfred

    Not much good has come out of the Lake Alfred meeting, Neonics are still being sprayed at an alarming rate. Grove owners are not allowing beeks back in their groves, just ask me. After being hit with...

    Mine are south of Oslo Road, just west of 95. This is the second time from the same grower. They destroyed 76 hives in March when the sprayed Admire while the trees were in full bloom. I was not...

    Very good point on the drift and other crops. Well, the grove is surrounded by eucalyptus trees and they are in bloom. Would this be considered out of label application? I inspected hundreds of...
