  1. Re: I need a hayfield sprayed for briars/wild blackberries...

    I certainly thank everyone for all this input. Brad, you're making me feel better about this, too. In reality, it appears a bioassay is what would really tell me what I need to know.

    I haven't...
  2. Re: I need a hayfield sprayed for briars/wild blackberries...

    What if you were going to plant pines on it or graze chickens free range on it...picloram in the eggs? It's a year-to-year agreement.

    Thanks for the continued help.
  3. Re: I need a hayfield sprayed for briars/wild blackberries...

    Thanks for the reply, Brad.

    The rental is verbal, a handshake. The renter and I discussed the spraying and the agreement was that he would contact me with the name of the herbicide that he was...

    A follow-up on the Surmount. I'm not a happy camper. The bees *seem* to have taken it ok, but what I'm finding out this stuff is very persistent in the soil and basically the land is only good for...

    Re: Robert Russell is a fraud

    Wow, the epic con...what a fiasco, and rip-off.

    These recent posts made me look to see if the old Russell website was still up. It's not, but the "State Operator Program" version of it is. This...

    Re: Kelleys

    I think Lyles might have been the tip of the iceberg last year when he posted his dissatisfaction with Kellys. :(

    I haven't purchased much in the last year or so, frames and foundation was what I...

  8. Re: Greenbeehive.com anyone buy from them in past.

    Mike, I run all 8-frame medium boxes...both for brood and honey. I dedicate three brood boxes to the bees...that's their's. Anything above that I feel free to harvest. I usually figure three brood...

    Re: Bees held for ransom

    $1200 for a dozen good hives would be a steal.
    $1200 for six good hives would be a very good deal.
    $1200 for three good hives....I'd pass.

    Sounds like anger...or simply arrogance of the spoiled...

    Re: Fischers honey be gone or bee be gone or somesuch

    Tends to make me think it is definitely a shelf-life to BQ. It would be nice if the bottles had a date code on them. What you experienced is what I experienced three years ago with my bottle. This...

    Re: Incredibly aggressive bees

    If for no other reason, the bees will quit building queen cells when they run out of larvae that they deem acceptable for queen making.

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Sure, I'm a vegetarian....send me all your ribeyes, NY strips, etc., and I will keep them safe. ;) I'll take care of your snapper and grouper filets, too. Got any quail or turkey? I don't eat...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    I have no doubt that it happened. The human race has been, at the least, a semi-nomadic creature since we have existed...populations increase and so the boundaries of their domains expand. Beyond...

    Re: Fischers honey be gone or bee be gone or somesuch

    I'm wondering if it has something to do with the shelf life of Bee Quick. Three years ago was my first honey harvest. As a newbie I wanted something that didn't stink being as I'd read so many...

    What difference does it make if you do the sugar shake at the bee yard or 50 miles away? Will the bees mysteriously eat the mites or something while they're traveling? Seriously, I'm curious why...
