If you had visited my web page, this post would be unnecessary. However I will repeat it here for everyone. I lost all but 8 colonies due to genetically modified soybeans and corn in my area. Colonies that I sold are doing well and everyone is happy with them. A beekeeper neighbor lost all his bees as well. From what I can find out, all colonies outside the flying range of these crops have not been affected. The big chemical companies have so much money that they can buy their way out of any liability.
Yes you are correct that it has been an almost perfect spring and had the bees not all died, then this would have been resolved. The bad news is that this problem is only going to get worse. At least Europe is smart enough to outlaw GMO crops.
That website just hasn't been updated yet. I just updated the Long Creek site and that one is next. Anyone can call or email if they want but it won't do any good. You got what you wanted so go ahead and gloat.
call or email?! very funny.
ditto on the gmo soybeans and corn, wish there was a 'violin smiley' i could insert here.
this is just another excuse of your long list of excuses to add to the pile
how many folks did you take money from this spring? let me guess, the gmo killed off your bees before you delivered any queens or bees, but.....you have their money and can't pay them back?
i suspect that we will start hearing from them soon enough.
You mean all the fake orders? Calls and emails then never hear from again?

If I didn't want to sleep at night, I'd advertise on the internet, collect peoples money and provide nothing in return.
$100? try $175 and $275 an hour....
BTW, hmmmm on the fake orders by phone and email you never heard back from, maybe the 'powers that be' are starting to pay attention to your less than honest business practices. someone's 'fishing' around. if i were you i might be concerned about the men in black suits with badges showing up on my doorstep.
I can tell you one thing, it is far better to give a product away, than to recieve the negative comments from said customer. The damage is far worse by not making that customer happy. This is true in bee keeping as well as IT industry, farming, and every other business on the planet.
This week I received the spray gun I had ordered from Eastwood, and set about cleaning it before use, according to the instructions that came with it. One of the final steps was to remove the nozzle to clean the needle. With all my might, even having the gun in a vise and using a hammer on the wrench, I could not get the nozzle to budge. I called them up next day and explained the problem. Customer service apologized and said a new one is on its way and that I didn't need to return the first gun.
This problem had all the potential of making me an unhappy one time customer, but by not making me go through the hoops of having to return the damaged product I received, they gained a repeat happy customer.
