    Re: Cow urine and EFB

    Very odd but the experiment and experiences described sound pretty legit. I was, however, left wondering what a chemical analysis of the urine used as opposed to other urines might reveal. I would...

    Re: had a cancerous tumor behind left eye

    Ya, the guy talked such a great game that he even had many of the long time commercials like myself scratching their heads for awhile. The kicker was many knew the family name through his father so...

    Re: New fight against the mite?

    I know the "RNA thing" has been experimented with for quite a few years now. I'm not enough of a scientist to understand if this is a new variation of what has been worked on in the past. The...

    Re: Almond Prices

    Welllll ya but this is a posting under "Commercial Beekeeping" at a time of year when all the commercials I know are intensely interested in the current bee supply and rental rates in the final run...
  6. Re: What are the bees gleaning from chicken feed?

    They aren't wasting energy they just know they need protein of some sort to commence brood laying in the late winter early spring. Its a good sign. The bees will abandon those kind of sources as...

    Re: Almond Prices

    Ha ha. Perhaps a few decades from now Near term if there is a threat to the almond pollination business it would be lack of water (the southern part of the valley is literally a desert) or self...

    Re: Almond Prices

    I think, by most accounts, prices are moving sideways. Dosen't seem to be much urgency from either growers or beekeepers.......yet. Stay tuned.

    Re: Global Warming

    I wouldn't call the electoral college bogus, as its pretty clearly laid out in the 12th amendment, but I think its fair to say its antiquated and actually predates a woman's right to vote by over 100...

    Re: Dumb Question

    They stay together because they are usually stuck together. However standard four way pallets use a "U" or "W" clip to mate two hives side by side and are handled and hauled "sideways" with...

    Re: Like sending bees to war

    I'm not going to defend this article as I think its basically a rehashing of the same old story we have seen reported for years and referring to glyphosate as a toxic killer of bees is clearly...

    Re: Credibility of Scientific Papers.

  23. Re: Warm spell for the next week, liquid sugar water or candy board?

    Are they light? If yes, I'd say some sort of cake. If not, I'd suggest leaving them alone for a couple of months. Feed demand is low until the queen starts laying in earnest which probably won't...
