Re: Green Chapel Research Project
Nice one, sometimes guys like you come & go so it is good to see the bees are working out longer term, and it is still a pleasure wandering through your site, I still like that pic of the lizards at the hive entrance they still there?
Not sure about the mineral oil in beetle traps, if it does not come in contact with the bees I think you still comply. Some treatment free beekeepers use an assortment of methods to deal with hive beetles even special bottom boards etc and still consider themselves treatment free.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
