    Pest Control Company Takes Responsibility for Declining Bee Population - November 2, 2012 by Mr HomeBuilder

    This week Bill Romine, owner of Paradise Fibers and Yarn in Spokane, helped save a swarm of wild bees from extermination after a call from a local exterminator. But why would anyone risk life and limb to save bees?

    Spokane, Washington (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

    Bill Romine is a local business owner in Spokane, he raises sheep and among other things, fruit trees. To have great fruit trees you need bees and noticed there really werent exactly an abundance of bees around. Honey bees in general havent been doing well recently with all the pesticides and other hurdles for them in todays modern world.

    Bill contacted the local pest control and fire departments to be alerted of any calls of problem honey bees in the area. He soon started getting calls from all over the city, everything from a swarm in a tree to bees living in the wall of a residential home. It's no wonder there are a shortage of bees..

    Bees are amazing but sometimes make some strange choices. Bees typically will build a hive inside a tree or other sheltered location and survive, hidden through the winter eating the honey theyve stored up. Bill received a strange call about a swarm that decided to build their hive around a bush and better yet, next to a busy strip mall. This unique "bush hive" they built over the summer unfortunately would not protect them from the winter cold even if the mall hadnt called the exterminators.

    He headed out to the busy strip mall with his bee suit and smoker and carefully clipped the hive out of the bushes. This is essentially the beekeepers equivalent of separating Siamese twins with maniacal Alfred Hitchcock seagulls dive bombing you. He then carefully transported the large hunk of hive dripping with honey to his custom natural hive he had prepared out at his farm. Although there wasn't enough honey for Bill to harvest any, he takes pride in knowing the bees are still alive and still contributing to the ecosystem...the honey will come next year.

    Bill is known around Paradise Fibers as Ulee from the movie involving bee keeping, Ulees Gold starring Peter Fonda. If Spokane bees get into trouble they can count on Bill to come to the rescue. Bill is officially becoming a bee hoarder out at the farm but A&E TV has yet to create the reality show.

    Paradise Fibers has been in business selling knitting yarn and spinning fiber since 1995. Paradise Fibers has a full featured wool shop with everything from spinning wheels to weaving looms and beyond. The company is family owned and operated and consists of a sprinkling of Romine family members, some amazingly dedicated fiber junkies and 1 boy aspiring to be a stunt man.

    Yellow hope for banana pest control - October 23, 2012 by Mr HomeBuilder

    THREE years' control of banana weevil borer and suppression of rust thrips have been achieved from a single planting application of controlled-release imidacloprid granules in North Queensland banana trials, conducted by Crop Care.

    The planting treatment also controlled greyback cane grubs, and there was no mite flaring in treated crops. Crop Care suSCon (sustained control) products business manager, Kerrie Mackay, said that a submission for registration of this new-generation controlled-release product - suSCon Yellow Intel - was now before the Australian Pesticide and Veterinary Medicine Authority.

    She said the current method of controlling banana weevil borer and rust thrips is annual stem injections of imidacloprid into banana suckers.

    "This is very labour intensive, so banana growers are keen for a longer-term, lower labour alternative," Ms Mackay said.

    "North Queensland agricultural consultant Harry Townley saw the potential to use controlled release technology to control these major insect pests in bananas, so approached us to consider developing a suitable suSCon product.

    "Crop Care's patented suSCon (sustained control) technology allows the active ingredient to be gradually released at the target site over a prolonged period to provide long-term control over pests, with minimal impact on the environment, reduced applications and improved safety for operators.

    "For six years, we have been working with the banana industry to develop suSCon Yellow."

    She said Harry Townley had conducted nine long-term field trials from 2006 to 2012 on Innisfail, Palmerston and Kennedy properties to evaluate the new product.

    At each site, the use of suSCon Yellow granules at planting was compared with annual stem injections of standard products. Each banana crop was studied from planting through to the harvest of fruit from second ratoons.

    Ms Mackay said the trial results were very promising for banana growers, with the suSCon granules providing the banana corms with good protection from banana weevil borer damage in first and second-ratoon crops.
