    Re: What causes bee paralysis?

    3 of my hives had CBPV last year also. They all 3 made it through the Winter; 2 of them now, when tested, don’t show the CBPV anymore, but they show APV, which I am told is very sensitive to varroa...

    Re: What causes bee paralysis?

    There is no treatment for n. cerana, either the bees can live with it or they can’t. Why dont you get involved with NY Bee Wellness, the virus mapping program? You send the samples to a lab in...

    Can you show me where that was said from the Bee Guru people? I have not seen that at all. I’d appreciate it, thank you. Deb

  8. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    This app is a citizen science project! The more info uploaded the more refined the app will be.
    Take the reading then inspect. Write what you find in the hive in the notes part of the app. I agree...

    Re: HELP ME! no fall flow?? lazy bees???

    They could have swarmed and not known, sometimes they are pretty sneaky with that, unless you inspect every 2 weeks and catch them drawing out the queen cups. Don’t be afraid to super early, and not...

    Re: Late July swarm cells OR supercedure?

    thanks for the reply; no other brood there at all, just that one cup filled. Everything else was new wax. With honey bees anything is possible. The hive is doing good, an overwintered Saskatraz...

    Re: Rubber Mulch and Bees?

    This is an opinion, I myself would not use rubber mulch. The bees clean house and pull everything they don’t want from the hive and deposit it in front, so you want it somewhat bio- degradable (not...
