    Blame Thy Neighbor

    doctors are not the all knowing beings you may think they are. I would not trust my doctor to check my eyes as they don't train for that, just as i would not trust my optician to do a prostate check as they don't train for that'. Having asked my optician about $2 shop glasses, they are fine for short stints, but if you read a lot or spend a decent amount of time or its your job sitting on a computer all day, then better quality glasses are far more comfortable. My wive had a computer all day job, and when she got better quality glasses her headaches went away. I have glasses from supermarket all over the house, shed, trucks etc for short stints of reading but if I want to sit and read a book or look up the internet i have a better quality pair glasses for that. Im not against doctors, they just don't know everything.

    Battle for Manuka - Government lends a voice

    We will take any help from govt we can get, but now he is acting PM, if Winston can now put some Govt money into the fight for naming rights just as the Aussie govt has done, then Ill believe he means what he says.

    What are bees foraging on 2017/18 season

    @kaihoka The hakea is flowering here. 1 bee working it.
  8. Good luck with that Winston The average Aussi doesn't give a Hoot what the New Zealand Government does or says. It probably follows that the Aussi business community and Govt is the same. They just laugh and go back to business. The answer to this issue is probably about heading the Aussi's off at the consumer level rather trying to take them on directly.
  9. Yesterday
  10. I am not sure that all New Zealanders understand the importance of protecting NZ Manuka now and in the future. The battle is worth many $millions. The future value of this industry depends on our ability to defend and differentiate New Zealand Manuka form copies, and nock off. I have no political leaning to the current government but I must applaud them when at last a senior MP stands up and gives voice to this battle. https://www.manukalover.com/single-post/2018/06/15/Winston-Peters---The-Battle-for-Manuka Hopefully this is just the beginning

    Yes, in his opinion what is the lowest effective concentration of OA in GL Ive been in contact with him and know that this is one of his own questions so an update would be great I have also described the Paper Tape system to him so any feedback on that would also be interesting.

    Honey Nutritional labelling

    As I understand Food Safety regulations, the generic label is sufficient.

    Rusty Queen excluders - Stainless Steel?

    Hi @MackAp, MAQS recommend removing the queen excluder prior to treatment in case the bees try to move upwards away from the MAQS and leave the queen behind. However, your feedback is valuable and i'll pass this on to the product team to look into some options
