  1. Re: Will the coronavirus negatively affect the beekeeping industry?

    Your numbers kind of prove the point that the medical folks have been trying to make, but you apparently choose not to believe. The pandemic is about exponential growth. Your graphic shows the...
  2. Re: Will the coronavirus negatively affect the beekeeping industry?

    It's like trying to correct the flat earth crowd, thee is no point. They have a belief system and no amount of factual information will change those beliefs.
  3. Re: Will the coronavirus negatively affect the beekeeping industry?

    I know there are a lot of misinformation sites quoting that number, now lets look at the real numbers, taken from published sources as I type this.

    359,203 cases in the USA and climbing rapidly. ...
  4. Re: Will the coronavirus negatively affect the beekeeping industry?

    1. I'm starting to wonder if the initial fear of packages not coming was over-rated. Air Newzealand was still making daily direct flights from Auckland to Vancouver yesterday, one arrived at 9:30...
  5. Re: New Hives, Use Frames With Drawn Comb Or Not?

    If you buy packages from the early shipments in our part of the world, local sellers wont even give them to you without drawn comb to hive them on.

    Re: Is an AI breeder queen worth it for 20-25

    I looked in the dictionary. There is no slot for 'survivor stock' with respect to bees.

    My guess would mean, 'survivor stock' are bees that were used as props in a stupid television show.

    Re: A sign of the times

    That does depend on the type, and the manufacturer. The basic surgical masks are basically paper throw away. The N95 types in use in our hospital are re-useable, but they have to be send off for...

    Re: Best Laid Plans

    I will never buy nucs, no comb coming onto our property that wasn't drawn by our bees. If we have a desire to do re-stocking other than thru splitting our own, we buy packages. I really dont care...

    Re: Shelter in place...unintended consequences

    My guess it would be the same news outfit that told America COVID-19 was just a hoax and 'fake news', it would pass by the weekend.

    100,000 infected and 1700 dead. At what point does it stop...

    Signs of the times, lots of it is bad and in some cases devastating news.

    Then a ray of sunshine in the doom and gloom. Three kilometers up the road from us is the Shelter Point distillery, they...

    Re: the flow? aka hive weights

    12.7 over 10 days is not robbing. I've had my hive on a scale get into a robbing frenzy once, they did 12 pounds in 2 hours.

    Re: Any beekeepers sick w CV-19? SURVEY

    I know the poster is trying to imply that if you keep bees, there is a chance you are immune to COVID-19.

    I can say with absolute 100% certainty, this is not the case.

    Re: A sign of the times

    No, I didn't miss your point. You may have missed mine. When folks resort to name calling, with statements like 'brainwashed idiots', my point is, they are essentially describing themselves.

    I didn't vote either way, live in another country, but your description of half the electorated in USA is accurate.

    For places close to the border, it's quite common to have a tour bus that stops by seniors centers then takes them on a shopping trip north of the border once a month or so. They typically head to...

    Got a sneaking suspicion that'll do more harm than good, but, let me know how it goes :)

    You seem to be confusing the Canadian Honey Council with some form of government. The label I posted comes from the CHC website.

    Re: Understanding varroa treatment

    reading about varroa control on beekeeping sites you will find an endless litany of hocus pocus

    I've used oxalic and formic for years, mostly good success. I've also read a lot of the literature...

  23. Re: Bee-L member requesting Beekeepers donate their extra N95 Masks - DON'T DO IT!!!!

    The large scale experienced over 50 beekeepers you are worried about dont use OAV. They use blue shop towels. OAV is the tool of choice for backyard and sideline beekeepers.
  24. Re: Bee-L member requesting Beekeepers donate their extra N95 Masks - DON'T DO IT!!!!

    My wife is at work at the hospital as I type this. Daughter is at home in quarantine.

    If my bees end up untreated and die because I gave up masks to keep them healthy, it's a small price to pay....
