I would love to see how they detect a bug on a bug???
you do know if you just leave the boxes empty in the back yard, it won't cost you a penny
I use the exact treatment schedule, how expensive is it to keep buying bees? that treatment schedule works up north especially when your neighbor hood beeks are to cheap to treat causing mite bombs...
if you drill your hole in the crack between two brood boxes, you go above the bottom frames and below the top frames, and especially in cold weather the vapor comes out the entrance and out the top,...
been using formic since mite away II, never had a problem, you make the call.
if the bill would accomplish d. above I might agree with you, but the bill will not do that. knowing where the bee keeper lives and the county they have bees in, doesn't help identify what hives may...
no matter what you do the snow is going to bend the wires down and short them out, I disconnect the bottom wires for winter, battery doesn't make it that long any way.

and if you look at the second person...
well we have had other people complaining about MAQS not working, but in all cases they tested right during or right after they put the strips on or as they removed them.
from the nod web site
love the article
no, we are lawless :applause: only have 2 1/2 bee inspectors, and registration is optional, but you can request an inspection, since the commercials are leaving for nicer weather, I would expect the...
oh ya but your missing the L. :shhhh:
I did not sure why it applies to bees, real life yes :lpf:
if you join the bee club above, and the person selling the hive is from Ithica one of the members probably can give you a run down on the person, and possibly the person belongs to the club. very...
secrecy, well NY has a history of problems, one of the ways you don't get other hives into your area is you don't advertise. advertising local honey doesn't say that you have hives at that location...
