  1. I've seen some rubbish spouted on this forum over the years. Some stuff on this thread takes the cake. I've just watched the segment. Dunno what you're all complaining about. MPI might be quite pleased to be described as greenies.

    I seriously doubt any of them would have the nous to know what you were talking about or care enough to bother trying.

    Don't, as the wheels fall of the economy late this year or next. Maybe counselor?  Definitely roading.

    The economy is slow to fall follow.


    Economy or no economy, drains still block, pipes burst, rats eat wiring & washing machines burn out. And old tradies die.

    I know it's hard to imagine but some imaginary unscrupulous beekeeper might just dump a site and between three or four of mine and then leave them to die of AFB in the autumn.Having to burn 50/60 hives would be a severe blow to me but having to burn all my honey supers would be the end. 

    So is this burning of the supers where the arbitration comes in...they shouldn't be burnt because you might need them, or they mightn't need burning as the experts say ?

    I fully accept there are times when the destruction of this type of material is a really good idea and I'm sure a lot of thought and consideration  goes into the making of this sort of decision but there seems to be no provision for arbitration.

    Can you dream up a  hypothetical scenario when arbitration might be desirable ? Seems to me the "thought and consideration" presumably by experts would preclude any arbitration (argument?)

    Oh and while I'm ranting, journalists what happened to balance and fact checking stop.


    That went down the tube when you and half of NZ cancelled your subscriptions.

    Same, I only use sprays after I've weedeated and come back around after the flow, now with my pallets making hives 16 inches off the ground and nowhere near spray will I get residues???

    Hopefully not otherwise I got to go back to just weed eating which is alot of work.

    I think it's everyone else's spray not just yours.

  8. If the hive has died because you closed up the entrance which it sounds as though you did, the honey frames should be fine. 

    You would have been allowed to tend those bees during lockdown, as bees were categorised as "livestock"

      Mt Maunganui is very busy.


    I have spent a few days in the Mount, killing time while bikes getting looked at. It's completely unfathomable to me the attraction of a place where you  have to fight for a cafe table.
