    Re: MAP 21 ?

    In NYS a truck with farm plates can go 25 miles from home farm. Confirmed by my friend that is a NYS trooper. He knew nothing about Map 21 and could not find anything of it in his book.

    Re: Testing pollen sub

    another consideration is the beekeeper. What if he/she hates the cold and snow. That would determine when the bees go south too.
