  1. 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 consider myself somewhat right of center on the political spectrum who generally believes the constitution with all of its amendments must be respected as written and not as someone deems they...

    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: Using Dogs To Detect Bee Diseases?

    Fortunately I haven't experienced any AFB in nigh on two decades but the smell is still something that I will neither forget nor need a dog to diagnose.

    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.

    :thumbsup: Well stated. It’s also noteworthy that preliminary results of studies are often reported as facts well ahead of any peer review process.
    Even the esteemed New England Journal of...

    Re: Credibility of Scientific Papers.

    You got me there Bryan but given the fact that the English language lacks a singular unisex pronoun I suppose I should have referred to said scientist as “his/her” or maybe “her/his”. :rolleyes:

    Re: Credibility of Scientific Papers.

    Interesting. One of the problems I have is that these “studies” are usually legit to the degree that the public needs to understand that they are quite often funded by a group looking for a...

    Sticky: Re: Pollination prices

  18. 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...
  19. Re: German Black bees in the Southeastern US actually Apis mellifera iberiensis?

    The vile smell of AFB will be forever etched in my memory. I did, however always feel that AFB was more of a result than a cause of poor bees. Long before there there was any talk about hygienic...

    Sticky: Re: Bulk honey prices and market outlook

    Someone in Montana raised 10,000+ lbs of honey off of spurge? I’ve seen bees “fatten up” a little off of the stuff but never enough to harvest.
