    Anyone know a reliable dealer where I can get Cliff Rose bush/trees? I've tried ebay and the seller smoked too much wacky-tobacky and sent them to the wrong state - never did get my trees.

    Re: What on earth is this?

    Has anyone checked with the local county extension office? Or a local master gardener? One of them may know what it is... sure is ugly, though.

    Lizards and Bees

    So I read on the internet that lizards eat bees.

    I also read that if a mouse gets into a hive, the girls will sting it to death and then coat it in propolis.

    DNA Testing on Honey Bees please

    First I tried Google.
    Then I tried this site, searching for DNA and/or DNA test.

    Would someone please tell me where to send bees to get them DNA tested?

    Re: New Pic Larvae ID please

    The green triangle was built on the underside of the inside cover.

    So far the local cooperative extensions service has had three people look at them and no one knows what they might be.

    I tried to attach a new pic here and it didn't work. So, I started a new thread (deep apologies to the site-gods) and attached a closer up pic. It is a little out of focus because it is a picture of...

    First the Bad News:
    This was inside the inner cover, located at the back of the hive. It was built into the corner. It smells like grass (Not marijuana type) and the blobs were soft and easy to...

    Re: Strange behavior?
