  4. Re: Why haven't we put together groups of beekeepers to breed mite resistant bees?

    I'm going to have hives on 'beans and cotton this year. Spraying is inevitable. How do any or all of you handle moving? Take supers off? Leave 'em on? Or, just keep the hives far enough away so...

    Re: cornmeal for bees

    Also. The amino acid profile in corn is extremely limited. The leftover waste from ethanol can't be used as a protein source in anything but ruminants (cattle, sheep, etc.), even though the protein...

    Noticed my first load of bees Friday on U.S. 78 (I-22.) I thought it odd that a load would run I-22 to I-40 instead of the southern route of I-10. Are there many commercial operations in north...
