  1. Re: Using the word "Organics" on your honey label

    Re: Varroa Gate?

    Has this product hit the marketplace yet? Or is it still sitting in the pipeline? If it is not being sold yet it must mean there were issues.

  7. Re: Recommendations for Inspiring and Innovative Beekeepers

    That's a myopic view. What beekeeping product have you invented in your backyard lately? Did the public think it was so good that they crowd funded millions of dollars to invest in it? Is it now sold...
  8. Re: Recommendations for Inspiring and Innovative Beekeepers

    Innovative, what about the Aussie 'flow hive' inventors. Largest step in beekeeping since 1851.

    Re: Washboarding Bees

    I agree. I told him, the queen bee breeder, that is was more to do with bored bees. However, their proboscis is extended when they are doing it.

    Re: Washboarding Bees

    Has anyone researched this particular behaviour? Seems not. I was visiting a queen bee breeder over the weekend and he said it is a trait that he likes to see in his colonies. That is the reason...

    Re: Washboarding Bees

    That maybe so, but some colonies show much more vigorous wash boarding than others. Are they displaying more hygienic behaviour?

    Do washboarding bees exhibit a cleaning gene within the hive as well. Any research done on this?

    Re: Feeding Syrup in Communal Feeders

    Perhaps 'prevalent' was the wrong word. I have had two cases of AFB in an apiary of 20 hives over the past 5 years; but it is out there.
    My worry is that by open feeding a feral colony or neglected...

    Feeding Syrup in Communal Feeders

    In my area American Foul Brood is prevalent. Next spring I am considering open feeding syrup in a communal trough rather than inside the individual hives.
