    Henderson County beekeepers group launches annual school - February 9, 2015 by admin

    HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) When it comes to Henderson County's $38.5 million fruit and vegetable economy, local extension agents say you can largely thank a winged insect from Europe.

    Western honeybees, introduced to America by settlers in 1622, are responsible for pollinating about $15 billion worth of crops nationwide, said Cooperative Extension Director Marvin Owings Jr.

    "They're extremely important to our apple growers, particularly our fresh fruit growers anyone growing small fruits such as blackberries and vegetable farmers," he said. "One out of every three mouthfuls of food you eat every day is thanks to a honeybee."

    But honeybee populations have been in severe decline for more than a decade, apiarists say, thanks to a combination of pesticide use, loss of foraging habitat, climate change, parasites, viruses and predatory insects.

    "Billions of dollars have been spent on pest control without the consideration of consequences on the honeybees and other useful pollinators," said David Stallings, vice president of the Henderson County Beekeepers Association.

    Part of the problem, Stallings says, is that most of the estimated 2 million honeybee colonies left in the U.S. are part of a commercial pollination industry that trucks hives all across the country, spreading crippling diseases and parasites.

    So just as agricultural groups have begun promoting locally grown foods, the Henderson County Beekeepers are pushing homegrown bees. Hobbyists can help meet local pollination needs with bee colonies acclimated to this area, they say, using fewer chemical drugs than large commercial apiaries need.

    The association recently kicked off its annual six-week Beekeeping School at Mountain Horticultural Crops Research station in Mills River to help foster a new generation of apiarists trained to provide the pollinators, honey and beeswax of the future.

    Co-sponsored by the local Extension Service office, the school meets every Monday from 7-9 p.m. through March 2. Topics covered include the biology and life cycle of honeybees; getting started with small, nucleus hives; swarm control methods; nectar plants; hive products; and dealing with brood diseases, parasites and nest scavengers.

    Once the school is over, association leaders say their group continues to provide support and guidance to newbie beekeepers, a necessity in today's complex apiary environment. Weather permitting, the group holds workshops at Historic Johnson Farm on Saturday mornings.

    This Popular Gardening Stock Is Poised For A Double-Digit Breakout - February 8, 2015 by admin

    Even where I live in Canada, glimpses of bare brown earth are starting to dapple white snow. It's not yet time for me to plant my garden, but that moment is not far off.

    I'm not alone in my interest to grow some of my own food. Gardening ranks as one of the most popular outdoor leisure activities in North America. Additionally, the National Gardening Association reports that a well-maintained garden can help save you several hundred dollars a year in food costs.

    Gardening is expanding beyond backyard plots, as community gardens and even urban apartment gardens increase in popularity.

    A key beneficiary of this increasing interest in gardening is Scotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE: SMG ) . The Ohio-based company was started in 1868 and is the world's largest marketer of branded lawn and garden products.

    Its global consumer segment, which accounts for roughly 90% of revenue, sells such products as fertilizers, grass seed, spreaders, and plant pest and disease control products. Some of its better-known brands are Scotts, Miracle-Gro, Ortho and Roundup.

    It also generates revenue through its lawn care service division, which is the No. 2 player the country and provides residential and commercial lawn, tree and shrub care, and pest control services.

    In January, the company acquired Action Pest Control, one of the largest exterminators in the Midwest. Management said this is part of their strategy to grow in the $7 billion pest control market.

    They also see growth opportunities in hydroponics, indoor gardening and natural/organic products. With the USDA estimating about 15% of the world's food supply is now grown in urban centers and interest in edible gardening growing, especially among millennials, the company has increased spending on natural product R&D by 15% since 2012.

    While revenue growth has been minimal over the past few years, the company has ramped up profits significantly. Adjusted earnings per share ( EPS ) grew 39% in fiscal 2013 and another 18% in the year ended Sept. 30, 2014.

    This strong earnings performance allowed Scotts to issue a special dividend of $2 a share in August and initiate a $500 million share buyback program. Its regular quarterly dividend of $0.45 presents shareholders with a 2.7% forward annual yield.

    That bites! BG among worst bedbug cities - January 29, 2015 by admin

    Bowling Green is 48th on pest control company Orkins annual Bedbug Cities list.

    Based on the number of treatments the company did in2014, the list is comprised of the 50 most bedbug-ridden cities in the United States. This is Bowling Greens first time on the list.

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said bedbugs are small, flat parasitic insects that feed solely on the blood of people and animals while they sleep. They are reddish-brown in color, wingless, can range from 1 millimeter to 7 millimeters long and can live several months without a blood meal.

    Theyre a quarter of an inch long and easily seen. Droplets of blood are found where bedbugs are hiding,said David Burton, environmental health program manager at the Barren River District Health Department. They are relatively easy to find if you take the time to look and know what youre looking for.

    Bedbugs can be in places that are clean or those with poor sanitation,saidShellie Miller, branch manager at Orkin in Bowling Green.

    Theyre very nondiscriminatory.They will reproduce anywhere, she said.All they do is eat blood. Thats all they need to survive.

    The health department handles reports for bedbugs in hotels, motels and schools.

    We inspect and issue operating permits. Bedbugs are listed as a nuisance in that they bite people and are hard to get rid of, Burton said. They hitch rides on your clothes and just about anywhere. Theyre not listed as a health hazard.

    When environmentalists find bedbugs, they refer the business to a licensed pest control operator as well as to the Kentucky Department of Public Health website atchfs.ky.gov/dph/ or the CDC website at cdc.gov.

    Theyre pretty common. You just have to be watchful, Burton said. Check the bed, bed covers, walls behind the furniture. Just be thorough.

    Commercial Pest Control Sydney - January 24, 2015 by admin

    There are so many insect pests that can cause harm to your home and your health that commercial pest control is essential to get rid of them.

The trouble is that these pests rarely leave visible signs of entry and you may not realise they are eating your home until cracks appear in the ceilings.

    Silverfish can get into clothing and books and ruin them, especially if they are stored without protection and rarely touched. These little pests scurry away so quickly that it is often difficult to see them, but if you see pages in a book shredded or find holes in your best tablecloths, suspect silverfish. Fleas are another type of insect pest that can quickly get out of hand, especially if you keep a dog or a cat. Fleas lay eggs in the dust, the carpet or in the cracks between floorboards so you dont always get them with flea bombs or other home treatments.

    Business backing keeps DOC on track - January 22, 2015 by admin

    Momorangi Bay, on Queen Charlotte Drive, is the location of a partnership between Kathmandu and the Department of Conservation.

    Commercial input from high-profile businesses is helping to protect and preserve more of New Zealand's assets than the Department of Conservation can do on its own.

    DOC commercial partnership unit member David Ross said partnerships with businesses were a way the department could operate outside its normal budget, but they didn't mean DOC had fewer resources.

    "Conservation is a big task, a big part of New Zealand, too big and important to be left to DOC itself. Partnerships are about engaging and working with other people, not about saying 'we don't have enough money'."

    Commercial partnerships were not new, Ross said. The kakapo recovery programme partnership with New Zealand Aluminium Smelters dates back to 1990.

    DOC had working relationships with many businesses, such as outdoor pursuits company Kathmandu which supplied equipment, and commercial partnerships often developed from these, Ross said.

    "It's quite an organic process," he said. "We don't sit here with a list of companies making cold calls."

    Kathmandu is one of two partners in Marlborough, working with the Marlborough Sounds Restoration Trust, mainly in the Momorangi area. The deal is worth $25,000 per year for three years with a review.

    "Camping is a key part of their business and so it was natural for them to get involved in something like this," Ross said.

    "We have a programme of conservation planned for Momorangi and as it develops there will be signs and Kathmandu will have opportunities to engage with the public on site. There's also media recognition and Kathmandu communicates with its customers through newsletters and its staff."

    Union's fears over handling of plans to move Middlesbrough Council services out of town hall control - January 22, 2015 by admin

    Concerns at how plans to move services - including bin collections - out of full council control in Middlesbrough are being handled have been expressed by unions.

    Middlesbrough Councils executive approved yesterday a proposal to form a joint venture company (JVC) with a public sector partner - Norse, owned by Norfolk County Council.

    The plans would affect 1,400 workers in environment, property and commercial services.

    It is part of the councils Change Programme devised to deal with budget cuts but councillors have stressed that the move does not mean the services will be privatised.

    Unison branch secretary Ian Campbell said unions were aware of plans under consideration but raised worries over Middlesbrough Mayor Ray Mallons call for it to be implemented before he leaves office in May.

    Tony Parkinson, executive director of commercial and corporate services has said the process would normally take six months but could be done in six weeks with the appropriate level of resources.

    Ian Campbell, Unison branch secretary, said: We understood that given the financial circumstances, what was being considered was the best option for the town and for the staff.

    We believed that this idea was at its early stages of consideration and much more work was needed before there would be a final decision - that it was too early for details to be shared with us.

    The apparent report of a need for this to be done before Mayor Mallons departure in May has come as a shock and we need further details from the employer to be able to make a more informed comment.

    The services to be considered for inclusion are: building maintenance, building cleaning and caretaking, bus station management, security and CCTV, pest control, bereavement services, Ayresome Industries, school catering, Tees community equipment service, waste disposal contract management, environmental education and enforcement, dog wardens, refuse collection, green waste collection, kerbside recycling, area care (grounds maintenance and street cleaning), parks management and maintenance, cemetery and crematorium maintenance, burials, highways inspection, highways maintenance, winter maintenance, fleet maintenance, vehicle maintenance, strategic property management, commercial property management and valuations. Others may be added.
