    Re: Move the hives to the bean fields?

    Surely WLC must be the "go to" guy on this subject. In FACT he allegedly has taken field trials to new heights.
  2. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Poor forage and neonics. You can have one or the other but both at the same time is a recipe for disaster.
  3. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Are you experienced in this matter?
  4. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    To answer your question Bernhard. Maybe you and others just didn't see the forest through the trees.
  5. Re: Some bees crawling in grass in front of hive

    Any neonics close to you?
  6. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Ian maybe Victor could do some google action and look that up for you.
  7. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    There are two ways to reduce bee mortality in southern Ontario. Move the bees away when pollination is over, like they do on California almonds. And take away government programs that reward hive...
  8. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    If they take neonics out of southern Ontario the fact remains that there is still not enough there for the bees to forage on.

    Re: Morgan Freeman, Beekeeper

    Morgan, if you are reading this, my bees don't requeen themselves frequently.
  11. Re: Hello from Belgium + Question on strange queen cage

    I don't like your odds. At least you will have a wonderful new bride.
  12. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    It appears that southern Ontario does not have enough for the bees to forage on. Maybe the bees need to be moved in only for pollination and then moved out again like they do in California?

    Sticky: Re: Bulk honey prices and market outlook

    Sharpdog that price reminds me of the initial payment on spring wheat from the wheat board.
  14. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Oh Ian. Corn is dirt cheap right now.
  15. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    In my area, no.
  16. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Would you conclude that the residuals from neonics has not been harmful to the bees?
    Have you had any success getting city administration to stop using glyphosate?
  17. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Thanks for the dying hive explanation Adam. Since the soil and water is already saturated with neonics wouldn't the bees keep dying even if neonics were banned?
    Years ago a friend went to Germany...
  18. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Ian it would be interesting to bring a bunch of live hives out from the areas where the high deaths occurred in southern Ontario to the prairies and see if they survive.
  19. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Ian I think malnourishment could be a factor. Maybe the bees are starving and the neonics contribute?
  20. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Bernhard I ask you these questions because I would like to lower the level of my ignorance.
    I would assume that if my hives were tested for neonics that tests would show neonics because it is all...
  21. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Bernhard I have never seen a hive that died from neonics. Please tell me what a hive/dead or dying bees looks like that has or is dying from neonics. Thanks.

    Ian, I suspect if some of those farmers in ontario are like some of the farmers I know then they...
  23. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    The problem with banning neonics is the people on the bandwagon won't stop at having a ban in southern Ontario where the losses are. They will want it banned all across Canada. And once they get that...
  24. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    I agree Ian. There must be some other pieces to the puzzle. My yards are always within distance of corn and canola plus peas, lentils and cereals. It would be nice if there was a database on what...
  25. Re: CAPA Report: 58% overwinter colony mortality in Ontario.

    Adam I switched this iPhone over to the full site to look at post 87. I did not see that post. Sorry for the oversight.
    If I were a beekeeper in southern Ontario and I continued to have 50% losses...
