Hey kathyp super bee do you treat your bees with chemicals?

no more than i need to and not without consideration for consequences.

a reverence for all things natural is misplaced worship.  go visit some places that do not have access to our "chemicals" and tell me that you wish to live that way. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

kirko

More important Do you treat yourself with chemicals? "Pure" water, soap, tooth paste, hair color, sweat preventer, alcohol, coca-cola, salt, sugar, allowed ingredient, cotton clothes, paint your walls......

If your child has louses in his/her head, do you use chemical on your child to get rid off louses or do you let nature handle the case or do you cutchild hairs and wash the head wit pure water?

In my city pure drinking water has 16 added chemicals. You you know how much your drinking water has?

Finsky, now you are scaring me.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day, Cindi

I see "silver" mentioned in there.  Anyone use colloidal silver water?  Google that one.

[I see "silver" mentioned in there.  Anyone use colloidal silver water?  Google that one.]

Colloidal Silver doesn't negate any of the other nasty elements found in "pure" tap water.
And colloidal silver has a limited viable life - exposure to light quickly dimishes its positive properties.

It is the absolute best antiseptic (as it leaves no surviving bacteria to evolve to stronger strains).
I've even considered it in treating "Nosema" apis as it also works well as an anti-fungal.
Not to mention its cheaper to make than to buy Fumigil-B.

We make our own colloidal silver water, keep it no longer than one month, in a brown bottle in a dark cupboard.  After one month, we discard and make a new batch.  We do not keep it anywhere near our microwave either.  They put "silver" in the eyes of babies when they are born to prevent disease, this has been done as long as I can even remember, when my little gals were born, that was a long time ago (hee, hee)  ;) :) :)

I have seen miracles with use of this water.  One that particularly comes to mind is the curing of our little pittbull of the parvo virus when he was a young dog.  Most puppies do not survive this virus, even with veterinary intervention, (which by the way is about $1,200, if the pup makes it).  Colloidal silver water no doubt saved this puppy's life, I saw positive results within a few hours of injesting this water, which was poured down his throat.  Powerful stuff.  I could cite many many instances, but I think many of you would be bored, as this would be telling a tale which has already been told.

Johnson & Johnson is even making a bandaid that has "silver" in it, yep, bringing back the remedies of old.

Long before refrigeration was around, this is heresay, people would put silver in their milk jugs to keep it safe for human consumption.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day, best of this great life we live.  Cindi

    The solution to a problem is often found within the problem itself .

We have last spring competition between  bottled well waters  and the city water was here the test winner.

It depends how good is origin of city water. We have 120 km long tunnel from inland lake to capital city. Tunnel goes 30 - 100 meters under ground level . The lake itself is 120 km long and second biggest lake in Finland.

But in many towns in Finland raw water is bad. You may see that to make pure water is big job. Small towns are able to do top quality water in their small factories.
************

Here nature water is acid and it dilutes metall from water pipes. So pipe water is here pH 8 and in soil it is about pH 6.

Some families have got red hairs when they have not handled raw water with chalk.  :shock:

I take city water to my summer cottage for drinking.

Chemical treatments make Resistant Mites and Weaker Bees.

This is true if you use Apistan. It is a fat soluble stuff.

When we use organic acids or thymol, they do not accumulate into wax.

Only harm is to avoid larva violations.

Reinbeau,

Excellent book. I particularly enjoyed his analysis of the "organic" foods industry as a whole. An excellent companion is Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegitable, Miracle.

On order from Amazon, I think it'll be here next week (I've been meaning to read it since it came out).  She wrote one of my all time favorite fiction books, Prodigal Summer.  I can't wait to read this new one.
