My bees are good natured. I rarely use smoke on them. The icing sugar makes them groom themselves and this knocks Varroa mites off. As the mites can't grip on the sugar dust they fall to the bottom of the hive and out through the special anti mite floors I use.
Most beekeepers use chemical controls but I don't like to. I have several other tricks I use to keep the mites down as well. The bee inspector is always impressed with my bees and very good at keeping me up to date with the latest methods so it works well for me. A little more effort then chemicals but cheaper and just as effective.

With CCD, the fewer chemicals bees are exposed to, the better, eh? :honeybee: :honeybee: :honeybee:

France: compulsory reflective stickers on all helmets

Hi, I’ve seen some Black reflective stickers on ebay and wanted to check if they would be ok to use? I’ve searched online and can’t find any details about the legislation that states on the colour of stickers that need to be used. Hopefully I can use the black ones so I don’t ruin the look of my helmet. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks

What next - post CBT

@jaykayg said:

@Stealth that's reassuring, thank you.

I would really like a Kawasaki W800 or Triumph Bonneville T100 next, but don't know if I'll be able to afford either.

The Black and SE Bonnies with 17-inch wheels and radial tires handle much better than the T100.

Great engine and transmission (except for not having a 6th gear) on the Bonnie.

Downside is the bike is heavy, the seat is uncomfortable (even the optional gel seat), brakes are mediocre, and suspension (particularly the rear shocks) is crap.

The other problem is that the Imperial Purple and Fusion white color combination is hard to find.
