  1. or has woken up with a lot of dead hives, and either has some good manuka sites/ is scared of those who have a share in the dead hives / hasn't checked the honey or hive market recently / has found a sucker to buy them
  2. insured? any current or ex-employees with a possible grudge or bills to pay?
  3. From some Facebook page: "Anyone know who has the bees on Piako road (near Valentine rd) C0657. Looks like some lowlife has tried to help themselves, straps cut & lids on the grass of these 2 hives"
  4. Plus an average width of tree crown cover of at least 30m, it's this one that disqualifies a lot of riparian planting. Also worth checking how many years of growth are ineligible for credits if funded from one of the afforestation schemes. Anyway, sounds like you'll get good advice. Although I'm often critical of MPI, I think their forestry in the ets fact sheets are pretty good
  5. Re the carbon credits, check the forest land criteria on Mpi's website, particularly the required dimensions and possibly the crown canopy cover requirements
  6. How much energy and bee numbers do you think get used up defending a hive from investigation by scouts from hungry hives And from flying more due an unseasonal winter = plenty of flying days and micro.flows
  7. Really dry summer in Nelson right? Wonder what sort of things that caused. Another thought, I know that Argentine ants cleaned out a few hives in or around Nelson late last summer and they're spreading, could they have struck?
  8. Someone set up a bottling plant? It feels as though there has been more concentrated/deluge style rain this year, not sure how available data series that show that are? Obviously a normal rain gauge checked every day or so won't indicate that
  9. might be worth locking this - i got an automatic reply from Kellee's email address saying that she no longer works at hills labs
  10. smart exit sale rate, they'll hopefully be smiling forever
  11. also an interesting forestry read: https://www.woodbusiness.ca/highlights-of-the-global-softwood-log-lumber-conference/
  12. a mate with no idea about beekeeping but a fairly good eye for a market deal wanted to talk about comvita shares with me recently, the questions he asked me and my answers left him uncertain on whether to gamble and he was going to do a lot more digging - funny, cos my view on my answers was a definite no on the gamble. Then again, i'm not a speculative investor not really so much related to international buyers testing, more to do with oversupply due to some beetle in russia or something along with the trains from germany
  13. much the same as in summer, keep shining those pants
  14. i sure hope nobody stupidly advances licensing or quota or similar in the next two years - suspect that the problems will have mostly disappeared by then, but the increased costs and bureaucracy you're suggesting would remain
