Re: sick bees... and no inspectors! What now?
Have you ever had them inspected before? Who inspected for you the last time? Finger Lakes doesn't say much about where you are. Where are you?
Are you going to the Empire State Honey Producers Summer Picnic at Cornell's Dyce Lab? You could find out about where a club is close to you and get someone to look at your colony for you. Someone who knows what they are looking at.
I'd volunteer, but I don't know where you live.
Just because something is new to you, doesn't mean it is new, or revolutionary. Mark Berninghausen
