  1. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    You are right.
    I apologise for lowering the tone of the forum.
  2. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    And why would you suspect that? That is not what I said at all.
    Congrats!
    Holiday over.
    I'm out of here. Toxic bunch of jerks.
  3. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    I'm over this. I see now why Sybille left.
    taking a holiday from stupid.
  4. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    No, not misrepresenting facts.
    The hive is now going into its third year- same colony in the same hive body, a supersedure Queen from last summer.

    Reset year, in that, due to its very small size...
  5. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    Big Fat sigh,
    C'mon OT, you got pulled up for trolling me at the other forum for pretty much what you are doing now, massaging and misrepresenting facts.
    I was going to suggest we take this to the...
  6. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    Yes I did call them nasty, much the same as I would about Having to take Penicillin to combat an aggressive infection. My stance has always been that there is something not right with having to...

    I wish.
    As you know, Alastair, he is just too busy to be a mentor running beekeeping courses up and down the country, dealing with his own hives and a young family. I am just very thankful that he...

    Well!
    The inspection went really well.
    No CBPV.
    Ton of pollen as well as capped stores and open nectar.
    No brood disease.

    He said they had obviously had a brood break and now there was a frame...
  9. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    Nope, another Apilife. It worked last spring, they bounced back only for me to mess up again in late summer/autumn thanks to Dan they scraped through for another year.

    Then I wondered if they were...

    Sticky: Re: Riverderwent Survival Treatment Free 2017

    If you really want to find the Queen would a Taranov split work for you?
  11. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    I did that this year and was surprised to find only one mite in one drone cell. I chose the frame that had the smallest amount of capped brood on it due to almost having lost the hive and wanted to...

    Re: A question about spacers

    As another newbie, I advise to keep the frames tight together. The bees will work with what they have and doing this will mean less mess ups than changing things til you get the hang of them....from...

    Sticky: Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?

    I just have to ask, against my better judgement....Why not just leave them alone and set out bait traps for when they swarm?
