    Re: No harvesting?

    Re: Modified Hive

    I dont know how a camera would be any good because of the frames. Holes in the side of the box with a borescope camera would work but I don't see what info could be gathered without it being able to...

    Re: No harvesting?

    So I just thought about this. If I use shop towels, and say in a week it starts to get cold, will that stop them from moving up to the honey? Any one use shop towels in the winter?

    Re: No harvesting?

    I noticed the mites under the capped drone when I was installing the strips. I have a good amount of shop towels so I don't need to invest in those. I'll do more research on that way of application....

    Re: No harvesting?

    Re: And now this.... GM bees.

    Ok I think I'm starting to get it. So if the seed came in direct contact with the Radioactive material it could become radioactive. But since the source is sealed and the radiation passes through the...

    Re: No harvesting?

    No I didn't. When I was treating them I accidently cracked open a drone cell and there were about 3 mites in there. I'm not sure how accurate something like that would be. I've never seen any hive...

    Re: No harvesting?

    Re: And now this.... GM bees.

    Wow. It truly does amaze me how we can do all this. Mostly because its beyond what I have learned. As far as the Mutagenesis, doesn't the radiation leach through from seed to food to seed? Or is it...
