    Is fear of climate change/global warming not a priority any longer ? has it fallen out of vogue or something?
    What have I missed, I haven't heard the term uttered in months.
  4. Re: Oxalic acid is harmless - I don't bother removing honey supers any longer.

    Re: New York

    Maybe, but
    Maybe it's Larinus obtusis or minutus. Maybe moved in from PA or blew on the wind from MI. Could be a Urophora sp.
