Re: Something needs to change - looking for suggestions
Thanks Rader, you got it.
Treatment is a tourniquet. Barbaric and only worst than the alternative. But then I still eat supermarket chicken. What is an acceptable loss? Anything less than 100%. TF is still overly sensitive to the 100% problem. It really does exist.
Comparing losses between a stationary TF keeper and a mobile commercial treater should not be the focus. That is like comparing free range chicken and a broiler operation. So different in so many ways. It is really illogical to be running a stationary small operation like a mobile commercial one. Here I expect that the TF and treated losses are similar; all over the board and unrecorded.
Package pickup day; 50 to 75 new keepers in full armour to watch a package being installed. TF will not kill most of those bees, lack of follow through will.
I really do not see much TF bashing anymore except for witnesses to the losses of the dreamkeepers. That is more overbuying by newbies than overselling by TF in my view.
whalers asked a fair question. How do I get where I want to be, hitting the brick wall again hurts. Nobody is saying turn around you are on the wrong road. Saying go around the road block instead of straight through it is not slamming TF.
