You can learn a lot about pollinators from this site.

Thank you Byron!

Disregard my request for this info under my "Use of Sevin Dust" thread.

Thumbs up A must see for every gardener.

Thank you Byron,

I really enjoy this site. As we integrate more fruit on our farm we would like to have a hive or two.

FWIW

Dave, author of that web site, said that a couple months ago
you could not purchase a queen from any source in the US.

The average value of a beehive, in court, from pesticide drift kill
is $10,000 (mostly against Chem Lawn companies)

Liz, and All.

I'll check out Byron's site tonight. But I already put a post on the other thread - Sevin.

So, it's not only chemicals, but Mother Nature also that is killing the bees.

later,
fred
