Re: Dan Rather report on bee shortage in Calif almonds
i'd like to order about 5 lbs keith, do you have free shipping?
i think the nutrition angle is right on. mine have been on virtually 100% natural forage for almost two years, and are surviving without mite treatments.
the locations in and around monoculture ag just couldn't have the forage diversity that is necessary to get all those necessary amino acids.
the fact that well nutritioned bees do well in these areas suggests it's more a question of diet that exposure to insecticides.
keith, you may have saved the world as we know it. too bad it's a proprietary secret.
journaling the growth of a treatment free apiary started in 2010. 20+/- hives
