  1. It goes very fast not as much suffering as gasoline or poison. You can get the stripscan in winery supply.
  2. In Germany they use Sulphur Strips, they are killing faster than gasoline and kill quickly the brood as well . It is used in the evening when all the bees are back and there is no problem with fire regulations. In Europe it is common to sterilize the poly hives with caustic soda after AFB.
  3. I had a dream and in this dream someone told me if you like to keep the competition away you need to make it very hard for the opposition to fulfill the requirements, if you powerful enough so you can have a influence in the wording or as you are the specialist with all the laboratories you can even give advice how the wording should be. I know from a Raw Milk place as they worked on getting a permit to sell Raw Milk one of the requirements was they need to have a turnaround for milk tankers ??? She didn't apply to sell to fontera neither selling in truckloads wonder where this passage in the text came from. 8 Years ago I where talking with a beekeeper and I told him if beeks don't stick together and create their own market they will be gone, he laugh at me and said never that will be. In some years time when they have set up the plantagen you will be allowed only sell Manuka from plantagens. In the name to protect New Zealand Honey industry. Who will be the honey industry? Only the ones who can export.
  4. Why all this waste of money for the name of Manuka? I think the money should be spend on advertising and adjudicating people why NZ Manuka is the best. Build up the best reputation and no manuka honey should leave NZ in drums. Quickly customers will look for the best Manuka and forget the not so good ones. There is a lot of things like Champagne,Prociutto,and so on protected, in the end people eat what is the best.
  5. View Offer Nassenheider Proffesional Total height is now 70mm only - therefore it even fits into a feeder, turned upside down! The tank is a bottle - You can fill it under optimal safety conditions in your workshop and transport it closed to the bee yard. The tank capacity is now 290 ml, enough to treat even the biggest hives with formic acid, without the need of filling it up again. The whole Evaporator is a compact item. The horizontal wick lies inside a tray, to save the young brood from the concentrated formic acid-fumes and liquid acid. The evaporator is standing absolutely stabile inside the tray. Innovation: Two drip trays plugged together allow the clean and convenient storage of the evaporator with accessories until the next season.

  7. I had this once, a swarm was in an Avocado orchard as I was shaking them I could see they had build comes on the tree??? They where not after a hollow tree or so and certainly they did not behave like a swarm. ouch
  8. Swarm season is coming early this year I guess. That for I thought you need to see this one could,t stop to laugh.
  9. They are actually just starting to flower and bees go crazy on it. I don't know the name but always surprised how big the spike is.
  10. So don't you dare let your bees come to my side and mate my queens as I am a pure breed queen breeder. Don't you dare let your bees pollinate my black tomatoes as I am raising seeds of them and can't have lack and yellow ones! Don't you dare to let your bees fly on my land as I am allergic! ........ ........ and so on. I think it's quite a selfish thought.
  11. Just found this webpage I thought is quite good as a lot of beeks asking for calculating solutions. https://www.bartelt.io/en/labtools/solution-dilution-calculator/
  12. Not with polystyrene hives hahaha
  13. Just treating a hive with formic acid 70%, day 16º nights have been 5º to 8º. Just checked today all is good formic is evaporating quite well wick in the tray is not to wet. Good varroa drop.
