    Thanks Greg that was fun. They certainly look like productive little units. On the labor side: that yard looked like about 90 colonies and it looked like it took him 8-10 minutes to pull honey from...

    The animal in us is hardwired for the various survival traits listed above and could include cooperation when that is useful. The human in us, however, can learn to develop altruistic traits and / or...

    So if your labor is virtually free (a hobby) and you reinvest all sales proceeds to buy whatever minimal equipment you cannot produce, and split each year to fill your equipment, you could grow to...

    Sp, Did you already write about what made you decide not to use treatments for efb if you get reblooms and do you know a post number? I have not seen it in mine yet but assume I will get hit and plan...

    Yes. Since the merger and price hikes they have been more keen on making money and less keen on offering useful deals.... They used to be the lowest cost bee supply.

    Agreed salty. But the thinking that we will be better off if we can automate so we have fewer employees is akin to the thinking that perpetuates slums. I am not opposed to modernization and...
