About those doctor deaths read this one.

If everyone wore seat belts then all vehicles deaths would involve the wearing of seat belts.

If I am not mistaken, fumigilan medication (and other bee meds) should not be used after two weeks of storage.  Something brought up in the cobwebs of my mind.  They also should always be mixed into cool syrup, not heated syrups.  Heat destroys the effect of the drugs.  Best of the wonderful day, good health.  Cindi

Thanks much Cindi,

I made the syrup 9 days ago and medicated it two days ago.  I called my guy at Dadant and checked with him.  He said I'd be fine for using it this weekend, which is when we think the bees are arriving from California.  And actually I pre-diluted it in 45C water then added it to syrup that was just around room temp.  instructions recommend that warm water premix.

Mklangelo.  115 F is an OK, warm temperature, should be OK, I was referring to very very warm water destroys effects of meds.  Good luck with the new bees.  Have a wonderful, beautiful day, along with great health.  Cindi

Thanks very much Cindi!  Such a nice lady!  Now if my bees ever get here I'll be just fine.  *taps foot impatiently...*

Mklangelo.  You know the old rhyme, good things take time.  Be patient, patience is something that not all of us possess, do strive to possess this wonderful human attribute.  It could be yours to hold in your hand, if you nurture is gently.  Good luck with your bees, I cannot wish this more than anything else for a new beekeeper.  I have learned an eon of lessons through my failures in my first 2 years of keeping bees.  I will never, ever forget these lessons. 

I have had lots of success as well, but I think that we learn more through the agonies of mistakes.  These we reflect on, far more than our success, and we learn.  I don't care who you are, we are human, and we are the same, we all share this, I know that.  AND, I honestly think that that is a great and wonderful thing.  We will all become great beekeepers one day, with oh, so healthy bees.  Have the beautiful, wonderful, day, and good health.  Cindi
