    Yes they must be , even my dog eats them!

    He doesn't even seem to mind the stings that much , he just pulls back his lips and gnashes at them with his teeth.

    Re: Realism and Treatment free beekeeping

    Best thing to do is not even bring it up on this forum , it's been done to death on this forum and as always , just deteriorates int a mud slinging free-for-all.

    Re: 21st century beekeeping snake oil

    So what is the point of this post ?

    Are you saying the woman is an idiot ?

    The seller was a crook ?

    "Mite resistant" does not mean "mite proof".

    Do you know for a fact it was mites ?
