    Re: Like sending bees to war

    I don't know how prevalent glyphosate is in almonds either... none of my growers are using it during bloom if it all. My main yard sits in an orchard, and he cuts and bails whatever grows between...

    If you're not really sure on the issue, pull a frame of larva at night, the yellow will really stand out then and be very apparent, especially on older comb.

    Sticky: Re: Finding Mite Resistance - The Journey

    I gave it up..... LOL, j/k. I can, I've been so busy with work and stuff haven't had time, but 2019 wasn't too bad. I can start giving a recap and progress report from then on.

    Sticky: Re: Pollination prices

    I'd like to see them try as I see it as a logistical nightmare.... I can see it as a good alternative when bees are scarce, but if bees are available, why risk it. Even on the flipside, you can't...

    Re: Seeking advice for Breeder Queen

    Caucasians are not known for spring build up, they're actually kind of slow to build up, but once they get going they do alright.

    Re: Cherry Blossom Honey

    The only other thing about cherries, I do not think they're very attractive to bees, if anything else is blooming they will work that instead.

    Re: Cherry Blossom Honey

    You would need acres of trees... I don't know if they even produce much nectar either to make it worth while.

    Re: Penn State "COMB" project posts Dec 2019 update

    I think this discussion is quite interesting. I think this study has some decent merits but it's also flawed in a few areas. Starting with a single stock was an interesting choice. When you think...

    Re: Dead virgins in JZBZ cages
