  4. Re: VT Gets a New Part Time State Beekeeper

    Probably true in NY, but the cost of living in Vermont has to be much lower, but then again NY has far more beeks. So would you prefer they charge by the hive, that would seem more reasonable to me....

  7. Re: VT Gets a New Part Time State Beekeeper

  8. Re: VT Gets a New Part Time State Beekeeper

    gee I wonder what the fee is, maybe NY could use this as a model.
  9. Re: do ten frame boxes increase starvation?

    I agree with Vance, bees can fly with temps in the 40's so they can move horizontally, how many deeps are we talking, were they on brood?

  14. Re: How many dead-outs are the result of the 2 types of nosema?

    My recommendation to you, is go read Randy Oliver's web site about the information he has about his take on Nosema c. I also recommend you read it sequentially if you can figure out which trials he...
