Re: Set It and Forget It?
Not my feelings, it was your comment about Squarepeg that was callous. Where were you while he was fighting a battle with efb that was obviously imported to his yard from a neighboring apiary run amok? You think bacteria just spontaneously generate? Years of hard work were destroyed by the carelessness of someone who apparently couldnt be bothered with taking care of their own livestock, which is what bees are in a managed apiary.
Edit, I'll put it another way. Suppose YOU contracted an STD. Do you think your spouse would belive that it "just happened", or would they correctly assume that it is because you had "close" contact with an infected person? SP's bees had contact with someone else's infected bees. The only thing appalling is that you do not seem to understand how EFB is spread. Here's a hint, it is not airborne.

Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
