  1. So this honey will join the mountains in the shed awaiting the right price, am I right?
  2. Why are you chasing the Rata then. I would not it is not doing much
  3. Try "Intrepid" as an alternative spray. Uses pine needles as the base.
  4. Checked Lester's hives today and added a box where needed but what surprised me was to find swarm cells at this time of the year. I do not think the rata will amount to much, too early and already half way up the hill.
  5. correct.The bees are breeding and eating the nectar as fast as it being gathered. If I did not feed them I would have dead hives and dead hives do not produce honey.It lloks as though this week will be warmer than the last one.
  6. They are eating it as fast as it is coming in. Rata , odd tree, appearing at Jacksons so it is going to be early or a non event.
  7. On the true right of the Otira river.The large hill opposite the pub over the river.
  8. 1st S, Rata has burst bud on Goat Hill, so may be an early year.I also see Kanuka flowering which seems early
  9. I NO LONGER HAVE A SITE THERE DUE TO NOT PAYING THE EXHORBINANT FEES TO OUR BELOVEd doc
  10. Grant, As far as I understand the rules it has to be a stand alone enterprise and needs traceability in case someone gets ill.I heard of a guy who worked in a hotel, extracted his honey in the kitchen and was pulled up when he sold his honey at a market.
  11. I have not seen Merk on here for a long time either
  12. It is blowing here in the valley.We have had a dry November only 237 mm for the month.Drier than last year but at least we now see the sun for longer and it is sunny today.
  13. No ,you cannot unless you have an export licence
  14. As soon as I get my printer and scanner fixed i will send the reply to you.
  15. I see Rata is flowering at Fox River
  16. Forestry workers used to carry them due to wasp stings
