    Re: I can't decide on what extractor to buy ?

    We made an extractor which held two frames. That was bad enough, but the drill was a PITA.

    We justified buying a quality Dadant motorized extractor because it would save lots of our time and...

  9. Re: Propolis treatment for dog's eye problem

    Thanks for the replies. I checked out the website listed by Krista. It is definitely not "cherry eye". Vet referred to it as a tumor. It is also only in the outer corner of the eye and more of...
  10. Propolis treatment for dog's eye problem

    My daughter has a 5-year-old black lab that suddenly got what looked like a sty in the corner of her eye. It started out as a very small bump and grew quickly larger (about 1/2 the size of a pea). ...
  11. Re: Bee Keeping Accident: Could have been FAR WORSE IMO

    Actually, it would be good if you would get an occasional sting to avoid developing an allergy to the venom.
  12. Re: Bee Keeping Accident: Could have been FAR WORSE IMO

    How many stings did you get?

    Re: Rethinking Dandelions...

    Marti is correct about soil structure. Synthetic fertilizers DO NOT feed soil organisms/bacteria/critters. In fact, synthetic fertilizers, as well as pesticides/herbicides, hasten the death of soil...

    Re: At a loss...I just don't understand

    I am also thinking mites. Did you notice stunted abdomens? Mite's white excrement buildup in cells? How is your ventilation? Do you have a hole at the top to vent warm, moist air? There is such...
