At our beeclub meeting on Monday night, we had a specialist from the Ministry of Lands and Agriculture come and give a presentation on pollination. Very interesting.
One member said that he had a hive that had some kind of poisoning a few years ago. He sent the bees in for testing to see what it was. There was a definitive chemical, can't recall which one he said it was though. But he said that they had to test for about 270 different chemicals to find the one. Now doesn't that curl the hair on the back of your head? Chemicals, yup, bad stuff. Have a beautiful and wonderful day, good health. Cindi
