Yes they’re definitely here.
Dianne

Is there a good local source for OA?
Brian

Swarm list question. When the swarm text says swarm at 3 feet 6.5 miles away.Where is it measuring the 6.5 miles from? My house? PUB?
Susie Wilcox
24:34
Maybe Cully Farm Store or Hive and Garden. I order it online.
Kevin Finn
24:35
Your local hardware store will have OA.
Susie Wilcox
25:32
Kevin, is the hardware store 94 or 96 percent OA?
LoriBennettUS OR
25:45
Are there natural predators for the hive beetle that could break their cycle while in the soil? If so, do they have specific pollinator plants to attract the predator?
Susie Wilcox
26:06
And yes the swarm location is measured from your house.
Kevin Finn
26:51
According to the Manufacturer's MSDS it is 95-100%:
Susie Wilcox
26:56
I don’t know of any predators for the hive beetle larvae.
Susie Wilcox
27:28
Oh that’s good to know I can get OA locally. I’ve never looked for it in stores.

I’m curious to know what efforts you make to mimic the overhead insulation of a bee tree, since most of the insulation in a bee tree is above the colony and the colony thusly benefits from that large amount of overhead insulation.
Ryan McDonnough
01:10:05
How do you go about assessing a colony’s mite load to know when treatment is necessary and to assess treatment efficacy?
Dianne
01:18:37
I am a new beekeeper and I found Dr Ramesh Sagili presentation last month very useful for Varro Mite control. I think it is still available on the PUB website
