    AFB Testing, who does it?

    I had my honey tested by Analytica this yeah, @Alastair . I'm pretty sure AFB was listed as an option on their test form. Probably best to contact them directly.

    Suspected Poisoning of Bees

    @Grant , @Trevor Gillbanks The unfortunate way this article has reposed on facebook make it look like Jose (assumin that is him in his profile pic) is the alledged poisoner!

    Tutin Alert

    my samples came back clean, unsurprisingly - west side of Hamilton city.

    Record keeping questions!

    2 3 excel; 1 tab per hive and I have a tab I set up to track the dates for queens for my spring nucs.

    Aggressive Bees

    if it was @frazzledfozzle expressing that sort of sentiment, the C would stand for Carnies...

    Solution to AFB?

    stupid auto-combine. this comment weas inspired by Alistair's post: We need an "OMG!!" button, @Grant For something like that you would need to be able to prove negligence, I would think. Good luck with that.

    Solution to AFB?

    so thats 3.2km... (had to use an online converter...) that would stuff a lot of urban beekeepers, but its an interesting idea.

    February 2016 Apiary Diary

    Do you do the extracting yourself, or get someone to do it for you?

    NBA vote "Against" and Unification

    I suspect I am not the only really little beekeeper to have this view: I have a hobby. Registering with Assure Quality / the NPMP is anlogous to registering a dog, and I think that is fair. However I'm not in an industry. And I dont expect to have to help pay for an industry.
  10. Have you tired a photocopier? :-P (seriously, don't. its very illegal to photocopy money)

    Queens' names

    I called my first queen 'Tabitha' - because I kept her in a TBH :-D

    NZBF Introducing Jeff Cameron

    Hi Jeff, If you looking for locals, I think your nearest bee club is Thames (but I could be wrong).
  13. My apiary is in my garden, so I made as apiary sign with brass letter-box numbers. One beek told me it was the "flashest damn rego sign [he'd] ever seen".

    Stolen Hives 2015

    the point I was making is that this is not necessarily a good plan for *all* beekeepers, as your post implied.

    Stolen Hives 2015

    Mine are in the middle of a city, down a RoW and on a rooftop. I don't think brands would make a difference to my 2-hive apiary. For a big commercial aipary on the other hand, that would be a different matter.
