Mann lake is selling packages sourced from a large unnamed operation north of me.
They advertise them as "certified hive beetle free by the state of California"
As the hive beetles are known to be here how can they say this?
Who or what agency is "signing" this certificate? Does anyone know?
Has anyone asked ML for a copy of the paperwork that "proves" this?
What happens when someone gets a package with a hive beetle in it?
