    Re: Chinses Swarm commander

    I try not to buy anything from china if I can help it.
    The real Swarm Commander has caught 8 swarms for me so it was well worth the price.

    Re: uugh, wax moths...

    I wonder and would guess, if you froze the frames for a week, then thawed then for a week, then froze them again, would that end the life cycle?

    Re: Is fall treatment for varroa obligatory?

    If you're going to treat, then treat. If you're not going to treat, then don't.

    But if you are going to treat, the "generally...
