    At present we are hand harvesting and cleaning pasture grasses for weaving Bee Skeps. We’re suppling our grasses to a teacher of Skep Weaving in Camas WA.
    This crop is most gratifying to work with. We use to simply brush hog it into the ground. I’ve alwas loved how beatiful and stately these tall grasses stood in our pasture. Now they are honored by being woven into fine housing for honey bees.

    I dont even know where to begin other than Angry and frustrated in addition to frightening considering that the Industrial Ag boom of the 50’s 60’s is the glaring elephants in the room. This idea of vaccinating bees is their final coffin nail. https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2018/12/07/674587061/worlds-first-insect-vaccine-could-help-bees-fight-off-deadly-disease?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm;_c

    Study reveals best use of wildflowers to benefit crops on farms

    For the first time, a Cornell University study of strawberry crops on New York farms tested this theory and found that wildflower strips on farms added pollinators when the farm lay within a "Goldilocks zone," where 25 to 55 percent of the surrounding area contained natural lands. Outside this zone, flower plantings also drew more strawberry pests, while having no effect on wasps that kill those pests.

    Organic insect deterrent for agriculture

    Traditional insecticides are killers: they not only kill pests, they also endanger bees and other beneficial insects, as well as affecting biodiversity in soils, lakes, rivers and seas. A team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now developed an alternative: A biodegradable agent that keeps pests at bay without poisoning them.

    "Honey bees and other pollinators are as much a part of agriculture as cattle and corn. We hear a lot about protecting pollinators, as we should, since losses of honey bees since 2006 have been at unacceptable and unsustainable levels. When it comes to protecting pollinators from pesticides there are a few key risks that need to be managed. While this article deals with protecting pollinators from pesticides, I’ll note that pesticides are not the sole cause of pollinator losses and may not be the primary cause of those losses. However, pesticides are under our direct control and we can take steps to minimize their effects on pollinators."
