    Aerial spraying of willows Turangi

    You'd expect it to be Roundup if anywhere near water...
  2. Not quite right either. A government department is an agent of and subject to the direction of the elected government, but it is not THE government.

    Repairing plastic liner in drum.

    Didn't know I was. And I don't care if I am. No, I'm just trying to stay off here a bit more.
  4. There are several NZ sites. This is one of them...... https://www.landcareresearch.co.nz/resources/identification/animals/bug-id/what-is-this-bug

    Wasp nest close to my hives

    I thiiiink it's any of the oily ones. Not water. Or I might be thinking of sardines.

    More by-kill

    More careless use of something or other.... https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/110596758/thousands-of-bees-mysteriously-dying-in-christchurch
  7. Right, I see. So you'll call your next son Sue ........
  8. So if you're attending a party and you're conversing in depth with a Dath Vader costumed person using a voice synthesiser you're not going to wonder who this person really is ? What's the difference between that scenario and this forum ?

    Look at all the green in those photos !

    Oxalic and glycerine

    Is the thread properly biodegradeable like a rayon/viscose/cotton or is it a plastic that simply breaks down into smaller fragments ?
  12. Nice weather we're having. A drop of rain would be nice too.
  13. Maybe because most of us didn't think there was any bullying going on ? Maybe we were all fed up with the endless squeaking wheel ?

    I can't recall what I use now, it's a couple of years since I contacted Donaghies who confirmed a product that M10 stocked was fine. Dr Google has info.....there are a couple of plastics that are ok, but the original and most expensive of course is cotton. And there's plastic sheathed cotton......

    Not an intelligent one who long ago sampled one cell full of late comb and felt rather odd thereafter. And did it again to make sure it wasn't a dream....
  16. I've found just the thing for you...... https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Foldable-Headwear-Sun-Umbrella-Hats-Cap-Hands-Free-for-Fishing-Hiking-Beach-Camping-Outdoor-Sport/32713119333.html?src=google&albslr=226897904&src=google&albch=shopping&acnt=494-037-6276&isdl=y&slnk=&plac=&mtctp=&albbt=Google_7_shopping&aff_platform=google&aff_short_key=UneMJZVf&&albagn=888888&albcp=1705442617&albag=67278010035&trgt=296904914040&crea=en32713119333&netw=u&device=c&gclid=CjwKCAiA767jBRBqEiwAGdAOry6PyKCitW_zPFP_88xjUzGcCeq4B1x-VOQUmB3H6r8JbYC1FA4s3RoCQwsQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Be aware that not all "sash cord" is sash cord. Some stuff looking like and labelled as such is NOT UV STABLE, and only lasts a summer or so.
  18. That's all PPBK that anyone could do, even me. It doesn't define the entity doing it. Being a public company would have to be one defining characteristic wouldn't it ?
  19. I think you are a very capable moderator @Daley

    And hell will freeze over before I pay some scientist to tell me my honey is safe to eat. @M4tt are you dead yet ?

    My labelling states eat at your own risk.
  22. What's gender got to do with it ?
  23. It's a shame everyone isn't up front with their forum registration status. The urge to ask you doesn't arise because you're up front. I too could rant on and on but don't because it's actually none of my hobbyist business.

    Lots of people do contemplate it and more.....just as in every field of human endeavour we're dragged down by laws made necessary by the lowest common denominator.
