Well, I was wondering what this stuff was good for and why I should use it. A friend of mine jumped right into it and he ususally doesn't jump into anything, very often, so I was wondering what the real benefits of using it would be. Thanks for the discussion.
It seems like some here think it's the best thing for bees since TM and others think that you shouldn't just use it because others are and others that you shouldn't use it because you don't really know what it does to your bees. Is that about the gist of it?
Who is using it? Any commercial outfits? Only sideliners and smaller outfits?
Why are you using it? Are your bees missing something essential in their diet? Why?
What is it doing for your bees?
When are you applying it?
How and at what consentrations are you applying it?
Where in your hive are you spraying HBH?
Who, what, why, when ,how. That aught to about cover it.
