    Re: Can honey cure autism?

    Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush.

    Re: Pseudo Name on Bee Source

    I came terms with the nerdy part of my nature long ago. Rio de Lobo was my screen name back in my gamer days. I have just kept using it for Internet purposes.

    I will jump on the mite band wagon. A couple of winters ago I had the same thing happen. I lost 7/8 due to small clusters, weak from mites, unable to move to honey within a couple cells distance. ...

    Anyway you go I personally believe you should view your first year or two as your practice run. Your bees may survive (that is the goal) but may not. The point is to learn, beekeeping is a science,...
