    SHB samples

    I'm looking for some samples of SHB larvae, and even the beetles.

    If interested in helping out, I can send you some small vial with alcohol for collection. I'll pay for all shipping.

    Thank you.

    What are you looking for in the samples you collect??

    What brand of alkehaul is in the sample bottle, and how big is the sample. may require several collection bottles you know!

    Do they need to be caught without oil traps for your purposes? I know I have a few from checking the oil traps, but not so many that I can find them when searching in the hive for them.

    I don't think it matters about the oil.

    As for the alcohol, If I use the good stuff and enough of it, I'd probably just end up eating the worms come Saturday night.......

    First cutout I do in the spring, I'll leave some pollen comb out for a few days and send you a few hundred larva and eggs. I don't have any this time of year, tho.

    We could send you some live samples in a box with holes to let them out for you if you'd like... that way you'll have as many samples as you want for generations to come...

    Ohh and while we are shipping you the SHB can we dust them in AFB spores, and Nosema --then you can truely get a idea on how resistant your bees really are

    Is it true??? If a man is alone in the woods, and a lady isn't there to hear him and he speaks, is he still wrong?

    And while we are fulfilling your entire christmas wish, to help keep the SHB from being lonely, perhaps the Japanese would be so kind to donate a few dozen Japanese Giant Hornets Queens --now comes the real resistance test ehhh!!! ( For delivery/ release in late April. )
