Anyone ever checked out Randy Oliver's website: scientificbeekeeper.com? Our club president was talking about the site the other night, said there was some pretty good information on disease/treatments.

On regular basis, like his style. Very informative/educational for all beekeepers.

I would say a highly recommended site. Some of his 'articles' are a bit exhaustive... there is almost always a pearl buried in all. on a couple I would say represented 'voila' moments for me... always in regards to the current health issues of honeybees.

I was just looking at his site, didn't know if it was ok to bring the link over. When I asked at my first meeting what magnification was needed for Nosema, I didn't get an answer. This is part of the koi hobby that fascinates me so I was thrilled to find a scoping guide. Don't want the parasites but do want to be able to find them.

I was trying to use my microscope to determine nosema and found his site and recommendations. I went there a couple of times afterwards but it does not look like it is changing. Is my bookmark maybe to a specific section (in other words are you guys finding it changes monthly)

A while back, Randy lectured at a beekeeper's conference in Israel. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend, but I heard some very good reports. He's top notch and thinks "out of the box". His site is a a gold mine.

I'm going to see him this weekend at the Dadant 150th Anniversary Celebration in Hamilton, IL. Should be good stuff, looking forward to it.

Great link! Thanks, will get right to reading. The yellow background on his site does some crazy things to your eyes when you return to a white page.

That site is where I go to get clarity on mite and nutrition issues. I drank the kool aid. ;)
