    Sticky: Re: Treatment Free in Finland

    Not much happening with bees.

    There has almost been no winter this winter. January temperatures broke the all time records in 60% of south and central Finland. The biggest lake near us got frozen...

    Re: Instrumental Insemination Equipment

    No I haven´t really thought of that at all. You get used to a certain enlargement. I never use the other lenses.

    Re: Instrumental Insemination Equipment

    Just make sure your insemination device fits on the microscope stand.

    I have this:

  6. Sticky: Re: A shift in message? The case for IPM instead of bond as the path to TF for new ba

    No I´m not.

    Kirchhain group is for carnica breeders only.

    Arista is doing this VSH breeding with one-drone-insemination system and artificial contamination of nucs. I have a timetable problem...
  7. Sticky: Re: A shift in message? The case for IPM instead of bond as the path to TF for new ba

    Ralph Büchler is talking in these videos about his own work in Kirchhain Institute. He might be somewhat involved in Arista too, but for exaple the protocol they use to find resistance is totally...
  8. Sticky: Re: A shift in message? The case for IPM instead of bond as the path to TF for new ba

    Good reason MSL to question the usefulness of pin tests.

    Did he show a diagram how had the SMR% developed during the years? The SMR trait (VSH) is, like he said, the one which matters.

    He did...
  9. Sticky: Re: A shift in message? The case for IPM instead of bond as the path to TF for new ba

    I have personal experience of this. When heavily infested, drones are hard to raise, and queens needed much more time to mate in my isolation apiary.

    And poor mating results (drone layers in the...
  10. Sticky: Re: A shift in message? The case for IPM instead of bond as the path to TF for new ba

    From the table (40min35s) can be seen that in after six years of work (2013-2018) they have about 10 colonies( or even less?) which are above 75% SMR. That is important because they survive without...
  11. Sticky: Re: A shift in message? The case for IPM instead of bond as the path to TF for new ba

    What are his results? How far has he come with TF stock? Or is he not breeding for resistance at all, just chemical free?

    A hive needs to eat about 300g of infected honey to get sick.

    Re: Premature ejaculation

    In the case of bees these were old mature drones.

    When doing insemination this phenomena is a nuisance sometimes. Sticking with a needle into the abdomen sides prevents this pretty much.

    Strange looking photos in their web site. Yellow carnies...never heard of.
  18. Re: How long can a colony stay alive without fresh air?

    Depends on the quality of snow, if terribly wet and condensed it could cause troubles.
    If light and dry I would not worry about it. Great insulation and bees warmth smelt enough to keep air moving.

    Pure Apis mellifera mellifera is a very calm bee, which has one an easy to notice distinctive quality: it runs like honey towards the bottom bar of the frame. When holding one long enough, they drop...

    Much of the film is recorded in Ruovesi, the place where I live.

    It is sort of a reflection of my childhood memories. Sweet memories!
