Contentious & Argumentative Beekeeping

Happy Last Days Of Summer! We are David and Sheri Burns from Long Lane Honey Bee 
Farms and honeybeesonline.com. It's finally almost here. Fall will arrive on September 22nd, 2018. Four days away. Are your bees ready?  Our lane is lined on both sides with an abundance of goldenrod. And yes my hives smell weird! Nectar produced by fall asters make hives take on a funky smell. Don't panic and jump to the conclusion that you have the dreaded, smelly American foulbrood disease. Probably just a fall crop of goldenrod.

Sign up in September and receive a free winter-bee-kind on your December anniversary. Free shipping too. Click here to sign up for BeeTeam 6 now. In the last BeeTeam6 teaching video, David explained to subscribers how to evaluate frames in the fall to help determine if a colony has 40,000 future bees of winter physiology needed to carry the hive through winter. Remember, all the bees you are seeing now as adults will only live until Thanksgiving. They are mostly summer bees which die in 45 days. Bees of winter physiology live 4-6 months. Are you missing the steps needed to raise winter bees?

Fall Tips
David has an entire article dedicated to explain bees in the fall. One thing David writes about is mites. Mites are shifting from drones to workers and increasing in number, spreading viruses in your colony in the fall. If you think you do not have varroa mites, you are wrong. All colonies have mites. In our winter classes we actually teach you how to test for mites and calculate your hive's percentage of infestation. Do not think you do not have mites simply because you do not see any. You have them! Get rid of them. Mites prefer drones, but now that drones are being killed, mites are now parasitizing your worker brood--soon to be your winter bees. And when mites have viruses, they spread them to worker bees which shortens the life of that winter bee from 6-9 months to 3-4.5 months. That means a bee born in October will live until May or June without viruses spread by mites. But, if a winter bee has a virus it will only live to January or February. Sound familiar? If you do nothing to get rid of mites then your hive will probably not make it to see March or April...READ MORE

Hello everyone here in this forum i am so glad that i have this great opportunity to come out here and share my testimony on how Dr idahosa was able to cure me totally from Hiv disease, i have been suffering from this Disease for approximately 4 Years now, i have tried various ways to get rid of this Virus out of my body, i have also purchase for Medical treatment from my doctor but they all failed, sometime back now while i was browsing the Internet i found some good quote concerning Dr idahosa Herbal Medicine, and how he has been using it to save souls from Different Disease including Cancer, someone also said she was been cured of Hiv from his medicine, and they gave out his contact details in case anyone needs his help, i decided to contact Dr idahosa and i told him about my Hiv illness he told me not to worry that he was going to send me his herbal medicine all i was to do is to send him my personal details and also my home address so he can post the Medicine to me, actually i did all that was required by this Man, i took the medicine just as prescribe by him, he told me to go for check up in the hospital which i did and to my great surprise my Doctor told me the Hiv Virus was no longer there, i even went to other hospital for better confirmation its was still the same thing, Today i am so happy that i am Negative again, Dr idahosa has given me reasons to share tears of Joy, you can reach to Dr idahosa on his email address at (dridahosasolutioncenter@gmail.com) or call his WhatsApp number +2348134261542
