Spring management of honeybee colonies determined by colony needs rather than by calendar
by J. E. Eckert
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: If the beekeeper, at the time of the spring colony check, cannot diagnose the cause of any abnormal brood in his hives, he should get in touch with his county apiary inspector or send a description of the symptoms to Professor J. E. Eckert, Division of Entomology, College of Agriculture, University of California, Davis, California. If dead brood is present, a smear of a dead larvae placed on a piece of para-fined paper, folded to protect the smear, should be included in the letter for microscopic examination. Do not include any bees or whole larvae.

Frozen food storage units not always adequate for best results in home quick freezing
by Lenora A. Hohl
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: The increasing popularity of frozen foods, and the greater postwar availability of freezing storage cabinets for the farm and home, have brought about a need for a clearer understanding of the uses and limitations of home freezers.

Early recognition, regulatory control of cattle scab important to avoid heavy losses
by Dean P. Furman
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: In California the name cattle scab is most often applied to a contagious diseased condition of the skin caused by a small mite, known as Psoroptes communis bovis, although as a general term it actually denotes skin infestations by four different kinds of mites.
