    Re: Bee Inspector coming next week

    Cool. I would like to spend some time with an inspector in my apiary. As it is now, I have to sneak up on the commercial and his sons and berate them with questions. Sometimes I get drafted for...

    Re: Neighbor using Roundup weed killer.

    If I have to spray, like I had to this year, I do it early in the morning hours before they fly. It gives the roundup time to dry and then bake into the plants later in the day. To my knowledge...

    Re: Price of beeswax

    Re: Bee Inspector coming next week

    I wish we had inspectors. I think the short time they would be in the apiary would teach us noobies a lot. Now registration and paying fees I could do without :p

    Re: All natural weed killer (say no to Round-Up)

    I demolished the neighbor's shed for the 1x10s and 2x4s in it and use the corrugated tin roof (12'x60') on the ground to snuff out weeds. It works great but moving it can be a pain.

    Re: oxalic acid treatment

    SNL meant OAV and not dribbling, dribbling will affect the larvae. If you buy a vaporizer, there's some guy named Larry who I hear sells a decent one, made in America :p :gh:

    Re: oxalic acid

    I should clarify that I vaporize (OAV) and have never dribbled. The FDA remark was hopefully a mistake meant to be EPA. It did make me laugh though :lpf:
