    They have nearly 9 million dollars of perks on offer, I wonder if they can increase that amount before the 42 days are up.

    Re: Cellular Hive tracking

    I think the reason that they can't give you a figure on the accuracy is that it will depend on the signals from the cellular towers. The more there are and the stronger the signal is, the better the...

    Re: Fog or Vaporize hives?

    OA all the way. It works for me.

    Food grade mineral oil does not work in my experience. Even with Thymol added, its not effective. OA is.

    Re: Best books

    If that's the case The wisdom of the hive by Seeley will put you to sleep in less than a page, definitely not easy reading, probably written with scientists in mind, but still worth the effort
