    Personal choice is the key. If consumers would eat real food, not processed and take their health seriously, maybe these bugs wouldn't be so pervasive. How about our health care system that is...

    Thanks Vance, I appreciate your response. They took a lot today and tomorrow will be even warmer. Then it's back to winter. Would they start brooding up if I'm open feeding the pollen sub?

    It's finally warm enough and the bees are flying! I put out some dry Ultra Bee to keep the bees out of the pig's feed. The pig food has molasses in it and I want to keep them busy on something else....
