    Re: pesticide kill?

    Re: randy oliver reviews a new Dr. Lu paper

    I had a guy at the State Fair yesterday ask me if the State was going to reimburse beekeepers for loss due to CCD since Cornell has figured out what the cause is. He didn't like my answer and wanted...
  3. Re: Pattern between farming and success of bees?

    No, though beekeeping is farming.

    I knew a guy who said that one could predict the honey production by how well maple syrup production was. Over the years I have never seen a correlation.

    Could it actually be propolis and not honey?

    Re: Status Change For Antibiotics In A Beehive

    The Maple Syrup Booth is much better than the Honey Booth. Seems like there must be more Maple Syrup Producers than beekeepers, on a commercial level. We sell honey and have an educational display....

    Re: Status Change For Antibiotics In A Beehive

    Just go to the Great NY State Fair and look at the difference between the Maple Syrup Display and the Honey Booth and you will see where people's priorities lay.

    Re: Hopefully, I've solved issues

    No honey? What about whether there is any brood? What was your mite load like? Did you do a mite check to determine whether you do have a mite problem or are you just assuming?

    Re: very old frame...

    A pretty common mistake. You should have broken the top box away from the bottom box before you started removing frames. That way the comb built between the bottom bars of the upper box would be...

    Re: Storing drawn comb

    I store my comb in supers stacked on wear house pallets covered with a tarp outdoors. Works great. No wax moth problems.

    Before this gets named "The Householder Method" this has been done for ages. Kelly Co built a frame filler unit that one could tow behind a truck for use in the field. You can do the same thing using...

    Re: Feral NY honeybees evolving varroa resistance.

    That's why a while back I wrote, "Time will tell." Will what has been seen last and is it transferable. Is there any value to what has been observed? Meaning, can we grow queens from these bees and...

    What would a Vet charge for a prescription and what amount would the prescription be made out for? Each treatment of each hive?

    When I take honey off hives 99% of the bees in those supers get out of those supers while removing them.
