  1. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    Since here in the US we deal with a melting pot - the appearances don't matter much anymore.
    Nothing matters much anymore.
    We are really looking at a different animal in making we don't really know...
  2. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    In Russia, this is how it is with the Grey Caucasians.
    While they are easy to manage bees (very mild), they are very decease prone AND propolis hoarders.
    So this entire "healthy propolis" talk is...
  3. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    I actually watched this while lunching:


    Immediate comment:

    - it was stated how propolis is losing the bio-activity over time;
    months of exposure to elements (especially years) will make...

    Sorry falc for spooking you.
    Did not mean it.
    Thanks for the resources, I will check them out anyway - never know.
    Surely others will check too.
  5. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    At present, the parasitic mite is by far is the most harmful bee pest.
    This mite does not directly care of propolis much if at all.
    If it did, the propolis generating bee races would be mite-free...
  6. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    All this propolis is making my bee work harder.

    But I am letting the bees having at it anyway.
    They want it, they can have it.

    Is it making them mite-resistant?
    No. Not that I...
  7. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    Importantly:
    The very Grey Caucasion bee is a propolis hoarder AND is rather highly susceptible to Nozema and EFB/AFB.
    Both traits are present at once; this is a commonly known fact.
    Why and how?...
  8. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    Indication of the "melting pot" genetics we live in.
    If left alone for 50-100 years (no long distance trading and migration - the impossible fit) - we could very well start seeing some particular...
  9. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    Thought about this some more...
    Did you notice the commercials about propolis inserted into the presentation?
    I surely did.

    All in all - every time someone proposes to yet breed another "magic"...
  10. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    There is nothing new.
    You re-posted the same thing as in the original post.

    Now - these researchers should be going back to the Old World and study why is it the Grey Caucasian bees are the...
  11. Re: Are TF BeeKeepers Stimulating Colonies to Apply Propolis Envelopes in Hives?

    First and foremost effort and time should be spent on figuring out your genetics and local population status.
    I say focus on that first.

    There was a propolis discussion recently - search.
