    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    You can't test in just one tiny spot. Experiments must be on a global scale if the product is going to be sold globally. Imagine a product only tested in "Blah Blahburg" and found to be safe and...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Small world. I've got Sioux blood. That being said, it doesn't change any of the facts that Round up has not been proven to be detrimental to humankind or bees in any way.

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Uh, with that thinking... let's get rid of the human race? Without the human race none of those things would have occurred... How long have we been around again? Are you saying we should have...

    You're looking at the past through rose colored glasses. Have you forgotten all of the packing house issues, people who died in hazardous jobs, military contracts filled with shoddy product, the...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Some people like to think of the glass as half empty, other half full. If a new product was known to consistently cause health problems and scientifically consistent manner when tested why in God's...
  6. Re: European Bee health reportedly better than claimed

    Everyone should always question the results when anything is reported by anyone. Time will tell if it's a trend. It is nice to see some good news though.

    It does bring one pause as if it was...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Exactly. That's why I kept saying I'm not going to waste my precious time worrying about the niggling issues and I firmly believe others shouldn't waste their precious time worrying about it either....

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Let's assume it's in there. You're still grasping at straws. There's still no scientifically acceptable/repeatable proof it does anything at all in those numbers. If it did, the environmental...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Come on now, can you prove there is Round Up in our eggs? You're grasping at straws. Common sense says not to put it on your food, that and the label says not to as well. That's improper use and...
  10. Re: European Bee health reportedly better than claimed

    I believe it's that Houstonbees is discounting it because it was published by Bayer. Nothing about actually sifting through the report and taking it to task for anything improper.

    Sooo true. It's simple to label all corporations as evil for the ignorant. However, all corporations are owned by individuals. No corporation operates without people working at all levels. The...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    +/-40 years of real world use isn't long term? A company is going to have to test a new product for decades or even centuries before people are going to be comfortable enough to accept a new...
  14. Re: Replacement for light bulbs as a honey box heat source?

    Interesting stuff. I tried one of those last night and everything appears to be working fine. It's a little taller than what I was using so I had to remove the 2x4 shelving in there to get it...
  15. Re: Replacement for light bulbs as a honey box heat source?

    There's my ignorance. Will those consume too much energy to trip the GCFI circuit I have this on? I can always leave burned out bulbs in one or two of the light sockets to reduce the respective...
  16. Replacement for light bulbs as a honey box heat source?

    I've got a retired chest freezer with 3 light bulbs and a digital thermostat that work as my honey warmer box. The standard 75 watt bulbs are becoming hard to come by. Before they become impossible...

    Re: Bee-pocolypse. Reality or Fiction?

    Sums up the argument very clearly. I've already forwarded it on to some relatives who were asking about CCD, insecticides and the health of my bee colonies. It explains it better than I ever could.

    Re: Checking hives without gloves?

    I can't argue this. They still hurt like my first sting, but at the worst I'll get a dime size knot that's gone in a couple hours. Normally I don't know they're there until I spot a stinger. I...

    I started out covered from head to toe with protective gear. It was hot and cumbersome. Fast forward about 3 years and I forgot my gloves but only had a nuc to examine. I did, and got stung (my...
