How Ticks Get On Humans

How Ticks Get On Humans

   When you find a tick on your arm or in your hair it has most certainly crawled all the way up your body from either your foot or leg.  Ticks wait in the highest levels of vegetation for a host.  As our least favorite blood sucking parasites, ticks will climb to these perches and extend their legs in what is referred to as questing posture.     Ticks possess olfactory sensory structures on their front legs (Haller’s organs) that can detect an approaching host.  This process is in effect helping the tick smell a potential host using its own legs.  This is one of the...

CDC recommends Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) for repelling mosquitos
 One of the main reasons for using Eucalyptus Lemon in our initial testing was that it is the only organic compound recommended by the Center For Disease Control (CDC) as being effective in repelling insects such as mosquitos.  Our testing is consistent with their findings and we feel it is the perfect natural ingredient to use as an alternative to harmful chemicals such as DEET.      Applying our Catskills Gold Bug Repellent every 60-90 minutes in bug ridden areas provides natural protection against mosquitos and other annoying insects.  We use the highest quality USDA certified organic Eucalyptus lemon oil for maximum effectiveness....

PH levels and cancer

PH levels and cancer

   The Potential of Hydrogen Scale (also refered to as the power of hydrogen scale)  is used to specify acidity or basicity of a solution and was first introduced around 90 years ago.  Many studies have linked the incidence of cancer with relative PH levels in the body.  When talking about sensitivity to slight changes in PH levels it is important to note that it is a logarithmic scale (like with earthquakes) where a seven is ten times more acidic than an eight.  This is very important when we consider the findings of scientists like Otto Warburg who determined that cancer cells both form and thrive in...

The Passing of a Chlorella Pioneer; David Rockefeller (1915-2017)
   David Rockefeller passed away last month as the age of 101.  He was perhaps the most important person on earth in the researching the capabilities of chlorella.  The Rockefeller Foundation studied the nutritional importance of this micro algae and the possibility of using it to solve world hunger.  It discovered (along with research in Asia and by NASA) that chlorella is the most complete food on earth and its nutritional attributes are basically a cross section of what constitutes a balanced diet.     Just a couple tablespoons of chlorella fulfills the bulk of recommended daily allowances for more than a dozen vitamins and minerals.  Organic Chlorella Tablets...

The War On Honey Bees
Posted by James Quinn

The War On Honey Bees

  This is a brief rundown of the observances of recent bee activity in the foothills of the Catskills mountains.  Many factors threaten the survival of honey bees, but yellow jackets are a huge threat in our micro biosphere.      Yellow Jackets, particularly in many Northeastern United States cases, Vespula Germanica* (a relatively new species in North America) are aggressive wasps that will attack and destroy honey bee hives (especially small/weak ones).  Ideal conditions for this occur in late summer and early fall when wasp populations run at their highest,  just as droughts set in; more wasps/less food.  Vegetation becomes more scarce and...

Our Current Beekeeper Map

Here is a current Beekeeper map showing our last 3 wax purchases.  We are working with beekeepers whom we feel produce the purest, most refined wax for making a smooth lip balm. These points indicate general areas of the keepers (located in Sullivan and Ulster Counties).   The general area of the three towns where the bees are located are Grahamsville, Woodstock and Big Indian.  As you can see, the bee hives are generally located within the 700,000 acre park.  Try our unscented beeswax lip balm today in single or 5 pack with free shipping.
