Thanks. I plan on stocking up over Christmas and my birthday in January. Right now my bees are really growing and hopefully will fill out the supers in place soon. I might take one frame per box just to taste the honey but leave the rest for them over the winter.

I'll quit bashing the admin as soon as Trump gets in. Hops is right, I love the country, it's just the currant NON-leaders I can't stand. They are trying to destroy it.

seems to me Iddee is trashing the current administration, not the country.
We have that right here.
I found a link but it doesn't say too much, it does mention icann;

Hey b, Have more than you think you'll need. If you catch a swarm they'll draw an 8f deep out in 7-10 days during a good flow. When? It varies. I'll try to remember to shoot you a pm when it starts next spring. You'll be a couple of weeks ahead of me though.

I was just thinking - not long ago GM was building cars in Flint, Michigan and you couldn't drink the water in Mexico.
After 7 years of support from Obama and his Administration, GM now builds cars in Mexico and you can't drink the water in Flint, Michigan.
Hope and Change delivered!
Is this a great country or what?

As an outsider looking in and an occasional visitor the way you keep rubbishing your own country it seems in your opinion to be the "what" Try to look a bit more on the bright side of life!

is there cronyism between some of the pharm companies and the government?  sure, and this case proves it.  Remember though, cronyism only exists because of government.  The more government regulation, interference, and goodies, the more incentive for business (of any kind) to try to find ways to get into bed with government.

How does this case prove it?

Mylan had one major competitor - that competitor pulled their product from the market because it wasn't working properly (it wasn't injecting a consistent dose). Mylan increased their prices by about 500%.

Demand is static, supply dropped drastically - prices went up.  That's basic capitalism.

The argument that this is a problem CAUSED by regulation is absurd. It's a perfect example of how unconstrained markets work best for whoever has the most leverage - not necessarily the consumer.

Blacksheep, I'll try to post a link to what barhopper is referring to. It's a pretty good read. Basically this beek kept a record on his treatments over a period of time. Initially it worked great. Later on it seemed like the mites had figured how to do an end run around it. Right at the last the mites were exploding and exploding very quickly on him. He did the OAV thing and the mite population got back under control pretty quickly.

  The flat coated flanges overlap each other on the corners inside the hive body, this creates a continuous 3/8" coated flange edge inside. I caulk the seam between the hive body and bottom board to eliminate any small cracks that the hive beetle could fit through, believe me if there is "ANY" small crack above the coated flanges those pesty critters will find it. I use aluminum flashing to keep the cost down per hive, its cheaper to buy a box of stainless staples but thanks for the info....
