    Default A chemical poll

    I know that one was just done but I wanted to be a little more specific.

    I think that there must be more people out there who use apistan. One guy is not supporting the entire business! Speak up! That is the only way to make an accurate poll, if everyone pitches in.

    Good luck w/ that. I've never seen a poll that had that much participation anywhere, let alone beeosurce.

    I don't think this kind of poll is going to provide any accurate info. Only 4 people have said they use Apistan and 29 who have never used it. Yet I know many people who use Apistan. Oh well... It is still interesting (:

    Oh, I took Never as in Never use it any more, not Never used it. I used it when it first came out. There wasn't anything else to use. But I stopped using it when it became ineffective. So I "Never" use it anymore. There are other things to spend my time and money on.

    That being said, a friend of mine who doesn't do beesource, so isn't going to vote, uses it annually and leaves the strips in his hives. He says that the ones that make it through the winter are the ones w/ the strips in them. The dead ones don't. I don't know if that's a good cause and effect assumption to make. I know it is against label recommendations. It does show up in his honey, but well below the tolerance level, extremely well below. According to the lab reports that I have seen.

    Maybe you could clarify your poll, but it doesn't look like you are going to get much response more than what you have gotten. But don't let me discourage you.
