  1. Beeswax from the brood next where the treatments have been or from the honey super where the treatments haven’t been ?
  2. Lol @ “regular beekeeper” I use latex gloves with the ox/gl staples no difference than putting in synthetics, Synthetics aren’t in the hives when honey boxes are on so has nothing to do with the quality of the honey.

    What was the multi floral standard going to be before it was changed at the last minute does anyone know ?
  5. It used to be NZ sold Manuka honey on MGO /UMF and that was basically the test that the honey was Manuka. Now there’s a whole raft of tests to be done to determine if it’s manuka and even then a good percentage of real Manuka honey is failing the tests. So Aussie are making it easy for their faux Manuka to be packed with numbers on it and any type of honey in the jar but as long as it’s got the required MGO that’s on the label then it’s good to go. I’m sure they will do very very well with a standard like that.

    Oxalic and glycerine

    @M4tt, are the staples still effective when moved to the outside of the brood area of the frame? im just wanting to make sure the varroa don’t get a hold in that critical early spring build up.

    Commodity Levy / Fight for the Industrys future?

    @JohnF I only brought it up again because of the hounding of @Ali about his/her status. I agree with @john berry It’s good to have input from all beekeepers for many reasons.

    Commodity Levy / Fight for the Industrys future?

    Thats from 2014 I know “commercial” beekeepers who have more hives than us and they have only been in the game 6 months in that sense 2014 is a long time ago !

    Agressive bees

    I know some have been burnt but don’t know numbers. A lot were saved by the helicopters dumping water on and around the skid sites which was awesome to hear .

    Commodity Levy / Fight for the Industrys future?

    I just deleted my previous post because I thought it wasn’t going to help in the situation but now after this one I’m going to say that @JohnF has been a very vocal proponent for the yes vote but is probably not going to be a levy payer and in fact being a researcher may even reap financial rewards from a levy . I like what @Ali has to say and I don’t consider the views extreme at all.
