You just cannot get away from me being a beekeeper and that’s all, I have tried hard not to mention my other interests ( we would be here all day if I told you halve of them) I genuinely want the discussion based on the line I am proffering but people like you make comments to throw others of the scent instead of presenting an fact based argument. It would be acceptable if I was the only person in the UK selling these products but I sadly am not,The first two paragraphs, although one applies to treatments and the second to feeds, appear to display a dichotomy in the approach to knowledge.
By fake news I am meaning that the thread started very much in the style of advertorial, and as such has to be treated with extreme skepticism. There are no references quoted or sources mentioned, which means it all needs to be fact checked as much as may be possible before one can begin to evaluate the veracity of the statements.
The very position of being an advertiser in the forum means that it is very difficult for constructive and informative discussion to occur, without the suspicion of there being a commercial angle that biases posts. I do not think one can really ride two horses.
On the other hand, if it does promote truly independent discussion with verifiable facts from authoritative sources, then it may have some benefit. Personally I am with Pargyle in that I prefer that the only stuff in hives is that which the Bees take in.
I also believe that nothing should go into the hive, with the exception of treatments as required, I occasional feed a syrup.
