Anything new in SHB control over the past 12-18 months. Been out of things for a while


On the outer Barcoo where the churches are few,
   And men of religion are scanty,
On a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
   One Michael Magee had a shanty.

Now this Mike was the dad of a ten-year-old lad,
   Plump, healthy, and stoutly conditioned;
He was strong as the best, but poor Mike had no rest
   For the youngster had never been christened,
A BUSH CHRISTENING - A.B. "Banjo" Paterson

If fipronil is authorised for use in Queensland, the DPI hasn't updated their webpage and registered beekeepers have not been notified.

This is the Apithor label
I looked up the permit  It is for emergency use in ACT, NSW, QLD, VIC, WA, SA  "IN FORCE FROM 29 SEPTEMBER 2010 TO 30 JUNE 2012."

Hey Slicko!

nothing new that I have heard of unfortunately.
My Screened Bottom Boards seem to be working well - did you use that mesh I gave you? How did you find it?
I think the holes in that mesh may actually be a fration too small, as I think my bees have started regressing as I am starting to get a few bees in the cooking oil now Sad however I got none through the mesh in the first 12 months.

The combination of foundationless and SBB have worked well so far this year - fingers crossed.

Hey Slicko, SHB are like fleas on a dog down this way and I am now using Apithor bait stations and they seem to work well.  I have learnt through two hives losses to tilt all hives slightly forward so any rain or moisture drains out.  It you don't the bait station gets wet and the SHB won't enter them, and it turns to slime in a week.
