  1. Re: What is the recommended varroa treatment for spring 2015?

    If I phone Paul or Medhat I can usually get a recommendation in a round about way. I was just wondering what the flavor of the day was so that I change it up on the mites.
    Do you follow the...
  2. What is the recommended varroa treatment for spring 2015?

    Has anyone been in touch with the State/Provincial beekeepers? What is the recommended IPM for 2015? I have been doing Apivar spring and Oxalic in fall for 3 years now. Just wondering if it is...

    Well technically not. We have yet to hear from anyone who has had a negative or contradicting view on patties that contain pollen. (Other than cost.)

    Re: Pattie supplements

    Allen' post was what i was getting to but he beat me to the punch. Ian, basically I was wondering why you settled on the OBA formula (Similar to Randy Oliver's homebrew).
    There appear to be better...

    Re: Pattie supplements

    No, I was just pointing to another recipe.

    You said earlier in the thread 'All these patty recipes interest me. ' I thought maybe another would interest you.
    As I said in my last post Dr....

    Re: Pattie supplements

    Ian,
    Maybe you had already seen this but Global Patty posts a link on their website to Allen Dyck's website and claims it I their recipe. I did speak to Dr. Medhat Nasr this fall and he absolutely...
  8. Best Tax/Bookkeeping Software for Canadian Beekeepers?

    Just looking for tax/bookkeeping software recommendations? I see the FCC sells Ag Expert Analyst but it seems pretty expensive and looks like it might be tailored to grain production.

    Anyone...
  9. Re: McCormick, alias Billy Bee introduces its new Natural Farms honey, a blend of Chi

    I sent a complaint to CFIA and here is the response:
    Hello

    Thank you for your message.

    Where imported honey is blended with Canadian honey and is graded under
    the Honey Regulations, the...

    Re: Stand on the shoulders of the giants

    A good portion of the giants were government funded. So the studies and dissertations should not be under copyright but the data has not been accessed and put on the internet of things. I just...

    Re: Stand on the shoulders of the giants

    One thing that stuns me is how much data from the '70's and 80's is not on the internet of things. I was reading 'The Hive and The Honeybee' and it references many studies and the data is not even...

    Re: Odd request for honey purchase

    Well Michael, the letter is fairly generic. The guy appears to have no beekeeping experience and lots of accounting. Even if it is not a sleight of hand I am 100% sure he could get bees closer to...
  14. Re: McCormick, alias Billy Bee introduces its new Natural Farms honey, a blend of Chi

    I have no desire to punish imports. Just make sure that false and misleading packaging are removed. I want identical labelling to Maple Syrup. That is perfectly acceptable to me.
  15. Re: McCormick, alias Billy Bee introduces its new Natural Farms honey, a blend of Chi

    Exactly! If there is one thing that being a member of a provincial honey producer's association, and national honey producers association, and a member of BeeMaid should do it is giving us a voice.
  16. Re: McCormick, alias Billy Bee introduces its new Natural Farms honey, a blend of Chi

    I was skimming the CFIA website and this might be interesting. Apparently Maple Syrup Producers have more stroke than beekeepers in Canada. I think the BeeMaid members need to start lobbying. If...

    This BeeSource is really frustrating to post on sometimes.

    The Aipilift is clearly built using unistrut also know as cantruss. Very common and sold in every electrical wholesaler in north...
  22. Re: McCormick, alias Billy Bee introduces its new Natural Farms honey, a blend of Chi

    I went through the grocery store and could find no other instance of Canada #1 used in this manner. Could you give me a real world example Jean Marc? I checked the orange juice as you suggested and...
  23. Re: McCormick, alias Billy Bee introduces its new Natural Farms honey, a blend of Chi

    It is incredibly misleading. I know of no other product with such misleading labelling attached to it. You have to really look for the fine print unless it is BeeMaid or the Walmart econo brand...
