Got cows? Got sterile jars?
« on: July 09, 2008, 01:36:27 PM »
I'm not sure if this will be a big trend, but if AFB infests young larvae, who knows?

Probably the same kind of thinking that made someone try horse urine to treat menopause ("Premarin").

Probably has to be cow pee, not the bull's, cause male pee stinks, but don't ask my male rat terrier he thinks his pee smells like roses, lil Bast%@d!!!

Premarin isn't horse urine, they filter the hormones from the urine.

Holy cow.  You'll never guess what I just saw on ebay.

ummmmm...?  No, thanks.  I'll take my chances and not use cow urine on my hives.  Glad to know you can get it on ebay though.   :-D

Huh.  I wish they had indicated what they think the mechanism is and what exactly they are treating.  I can't see how this would have any effect on AFB.

Maybe you're right.  If I sprayed it around my cube at work, I think it would keep the pests (coworkers) away.
