    And I have thought about it. I know these things because I've been one of these well-meaning individuals and since learned enough to realize how ridiculous that is.

    Treatment free remains my goal, as it is, I'm sure for most of you. I have come to believe that commercial beekeepers are the ones most likely to get us there, as they have all the bees.
    So true

    who is ordering those expensive($300-$600) II breeders? Not joe blow split and let die.

    Giggle of the day: I'm reminded of the long held (for 20+ years!) belief and intuition of the scientific community of the Varroa destructor mite feeding upon hemolymph!

    Thanks.

    " Invest in swarm traps.
    Let no swarm call go unanswered." Even if the swarm comes from a 'commercial hive' that is so healthy it just has to replicate! ??

    So much chafe, so few kernels.

    Not sure why a guy who has been breeding his "strong bees and weak mites" for 12 years would want to pollute this awesome breed, with swarms of unknown origin.

    "A bit of a giggle" ha ha, yes, haven't thought about him in a while. I guess as long as there are people still willing to listen to a guy whose years of bee experience have, to this point, netted him some speaking engagements and a handful of live hives then more power to him. To each his own....

    Look at it this way:

    All of those unsuspecting sheep that follow him only to fail, will get a taste of REAL honey, and after they are done beekeeping , will gladly pay that rich price we are asking.
