My name is Dr Margriet Dogterom and am the founder and owner of Beediverse. I write this blog for all who love bees and who want to learn more about these wonderful creatures.
This morning I received an email from Norm
Subject: cocoon removal
” I have the cardboard tubes with liners.
Is it possible to remove the cocoons from this type nest?”
Yes it is possible. First try pulling out the liners. If the liner is dry, you can remove the liner and replace the tube with a clean liner. Unfortunately if there is any moisture, the liner absorbs moisture and breaks when you try and remove the liner. If this happens, the cardboard tube has to be unraveled to get the cocoons out.
My web site was launched today with two methods of secure payment options- Moneris and Paypal. Choose either one. It will be fun to add all those photos and videos as we go from one season to another. If you have any questions or edits please let me know.
I did send out emails today to let my customers know that the web site had been launched. I apologize for any duplicate emails you may have received. Thank your in advance for your comments. Margriet
