Re: Does small cell really work?
Hmmm, does small cell really work? I am going to assume here.
Jennifer Barry mentions the Brazilian study by Dr. David De Jong. I will give a summary of the results of that study below, but Brazil has had destructor a lot longer than we have. Also, you might do a Google on Dr. David De Jong and put small cell and other research items and you might be surprised.
I don't know how to make this work out in chart form so please bear with me.
Results of Dr. De Jongs study in which 3 different cell sizes were place in the same colonies:
a=% of workers infested
b=# of mites per 100 bees
c=% increase in mite infestation from "1a and 1b"
1. 4.8 cell size-(a)=10.3; (b)=15.6;
2. 5.16 cell size-(a)=13.95; (b)=17.7; (c) +35.4%, +13.5%
3. 5.27 cell size-(a)=19.2; (b)=24.4 (c) +86.4%, +56.4%
Don't keep saying there aren't any studies that show that small cell works.
I will say this, I have a completely different way of looking at things than Jennifer, not to say I am right and she is wrong.
First, she touts GMO (genitic modification of organisms) as being successful. I don't agree at all.
Second, I have listened to her assumptions and her analysis of her results, and how the study was conducted, and I personally don't think it shows anything reliable nor useful. No disrespect to Jennifer but we simply have a different way at looking, viewing, and anylising things.
