GARDENING AROUND THE HOUSE / Re: Natural Fence
« Last post by herbhome on February 21, 2017, 09:31:32 PM »
The pioneers here used wild roses as a natural fence. Bees don't care for it much. Once started they are near impossible to kill out without herbicide. Osage-orange, also known as Bois D'arc, is a good one I think the bees would like.

Yesterday the bees were working my bird feeder, today the maple tree in my front yard. This may not be so good, it's mighty early up here.

Yeah, Paul Stamets was trying to make metarhizium anisopliae into a treatment for the Varroa mite.
I'm guessing he wasn't able to get a patent, don't know.

I would advise between 2 and 4.  Anymore than four when you don't know what you are doing is a bit too much.  Any less than 2 is too little.

>metarhizium anisopliae

There was a lot of hype on this about ten years or more ago.  Don't hear much now.
