finsky, well said about the authority things. but what soviets have to say about (well, had to say) about their authority is just true. lately, anywhere i look i see false "scientifical prooved" information, literally ANYWHERE!!!
may i invite you to check out the "coffe house", there's a tread about global warming named "bann the usa", by me. but, this is just one, ONE of the things.
i don't know how dependant are you on beekeeping but i actually don't need bees, never have i needed bees, but since i got them, i just want to have them, although by now i've spend ugh, too much and got nothing, and probably never will get much, but i don't care. anyway, what i wanted to point out is that i will try the whole "natural" beekeeping, if it won't go, it won't i'll step to your side. so far i do not see a reason why i shouldn't be "against" your way of beekeeping, so far what they say about natural beekeeping seems logical, and they say it works, who in the world wouldn't give it a try?
they promis less work, less trouble....
just hope we can talk about my resultst in the next 5 years ;)
