    Bees in the trash

    Hi, all,

    yesterday, I was at the gas station and I saw honey bees going in the trash by the pump.

    Now, this gas station is about one mile from our hives, as the bee flies, so I said to my wife,...
  4. Re: clarification: varroa mites -> deformed wing virus -> colony collapse

    To answer my own question.... I was poking around and found this article:

    Here is the link to "Nutrition, immunity and viral infections in honey bees":...

    Thanks AR
  6. clarification: varroa mites -> deformed wing virus -> colony collapse

    Hi, all,

    I just wanted to be sure I got the basic facts right.

    At this point, it would appear that varroa mites are basically endemic in honey bees in America, whether feral or kept as...

    Re: My experience with Minnesota Hygienic bees

    The one fact I have heard about getting a particular strain of bees. Really really hard to keep the line pure, due to how bees mate and reproduce. You would have to constantly requeen, unless your...

    Re: My experience with Minnesota Hygienic bees

    I agree with this point, too. Let's not make it personal. That has little to do with observation, data, and results.
  9. Re: not new to bee stings, but I just had a real bad reaction

    Thanks for your feedback Ruthie. Yes, I was thinking this could have been why. Where the bee stung me, there wasn't really anywhere for that venom to go but into my blood, and I believe the face...
  10. Re: not new to bee stings, but I just had a real bad reaction

    This is a tough one. I'm not that old (46). But I do have a heart condition, a heart block. We'll see what doc says.

    Hey Cyberman, how did you hear about the Minnesota bees in the first place? Also, I do commiserate with how you are experiencing the forum. It is probably best to post in the treatment free...
  12. Re: not new to bee stings, but I just had a real bad reaction

    No, you're right. I'm just wondering what other's experience has been.
  13. Re: not new to bee stings, but I just had a real bad reaction

    Yep, I definitely want to get tested again. She did it earlier this year, and the only thing of note was an allergy to roaches!
  14. Re: not new to bee stings, but I just had a real bad reaction

    Anchors,

    hey could you tell me more about your concerns about EPI?

    thanks,

  15. Re: not new to bee stings, but I just had a real bad reaction

    Nah, it was absolutely a honey bee. I was in the flight path they use when they are zipping to the hive and one bammed into my head. When I was rubbing my forehead trying to feel for the stinger,...
  16. not new to bee stings, but I just had a real bad reaction

    Hey, y'all,

    I got stung on the forehead Saturday. I didn't think much of it because it certainly wasn't the first time, and it didn't seem to me that the bee lost her stinger in my head, couldn't...

    This is an amazing book, both for the insightful conclusions of the research and the book is well-written, too.

    Re: Swarm Traps

    point well taken.

    I'm doing some experiments around feeding, so it would be more of a problem with me.

    Re: Swarm Traps

    You'll see my thread elsewhere which is a variation on your question. There is some downside to catching a swarm late in the season, being that the swarm is likely to be on the weaker side. So it...

    Re: dearth - take 'em down?

    Hi, all,

    I live near Atlanta and this is when the dearth usually starts.

    I'm thinking to take down the traps I put up for a couple of reasons: not sure that I want to deal with a late season /...
