Re: honey bees evolve rapidly -- genetics of wild bees in NY

Not a wacky at all. I try to tell people to drop the Walmart mentality all the time in beekeeping.

Most hives are ready. There are some laggards that are gonna die but for the st part everything looks good.

lharder: you ever read much on Permaculture? If not you're already in the same vein.

Re: Starting from Scratch

All my stuff is caught. I take all comers and let everything sort itself out. I inspect if I think something is wrong. Otherwise I leave them alone. I was told there were no here ferals too. Don't give up if you have trouble finding them. Once located they usually repeat yearly. If they come from so...

Re: Starting from Scratch

Lharder I'm running some pseudo - feral hives. 3 deep hives that I don't super and catch swarms off of. I did a couple this year. Next year I'm shooting for 10-12. Caught 4 NICE swarms off of 1 of them. Will be seeing what happens next year.

Re: New in Indiana

The Bloomington area is gonna have bees there. I'd net money on it.

Re: New in Indiana

I'm near Richmond, IN. I know of a couple locations around the state where there are feral bees and several widespread friends have told me of swarms they have witnessed.

I'd be glad to help you find some trapping locations if I can.

Re: RE: Re: honey bees evolve rapidly -- genetics of wild bees in NY

I'm sure Seeley has been saying the same thing, he got tired of the denial so got some people together to nail it. I'm a bit surprised this work wasn't done a bit sooner. It looked to me an obvious PH.d. project. If people are out examining genetic variation of back swimmers as a function of spatia...

Re: deformed wing virus

Nicole. Are you certain there us no feral bee population near you? If there is a river valley within an hour of you that has trees large enough there may be bees there. I know nothing about your area, but if bees have ever been kept near you there are bees there now. Have you ever been out and notic...

Re: ccd in tf bees

Mr. Bush it seems logical that a change in micro-biome of the inside of the hive could have these effects allowing normally non-pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and viruses to cause problems just as in humans. The "syndrome" type presentation could be accounted for in such a scenario. Has there...

Re: honey bees evolve rapidly -- genetics of wild bees in NY

This is something that I have been talking about in my area for several years now. The idea that all of the feral stocks died was a false. I cannot believe this news has not generated more discussion. This should be info enough for everyone to be out building swarm traps and looking for places to pu...
