The Pink Pages
George Wady Imirie Jr., 84, was a master beekeeper who shared his knowledge through his opinionated and blunt newsletter called the "Pink Pages". He studied for a graduate degree in atomic engineering and worked on the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WWII.

He coined the popular phrase, "Be a bee-keeper, not a bee-haver."

I have indexed a verbatim copy of his notes for beekeeping prosperity.

This publication includes information about insecticides, chemicals, drugs, and other materials whose usage is regulated by state and federal agencies. Every effort has been made to provide information that is current and correct as of the date of publication. However, the status of some materials is not clear, and that of others may change at any time. Anyone using regulated materials, or planning to do so, should read and follow the label directions. If there is any question about the use of such materials, contact the extension apiculturist or extension entomologist in your state, or the local extension adviser or county agent. Beekeeping periodicals often include announcements about changes in the accepted uses of regulated materials by beekeepers.
So that the information in this publication may be more easily understood, trade names of products or equipment have been used in place of complicated descriptions or chemical identification. No endorsement of named products is intended, nor is criticism implied of similar products that are not mentioned.

A collection of articles and papers.

"AFB is the most serious bacterial disease of honey bee brood and is caused by the bacterium Paenibacillus larvae"

A beekeeper’s best way to manage AFB is to avoid it."

THE LIFE OF THE BEE

[Samuel] Goldwyn boasted that the greatest living writers were on his team of authors [at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer] and he would spare no expense to get them, even if his ideas about their output were rather vague.

One of the literary celebrities he lured to Hollywood was the Belgian writer Maurice Maeterlinck, winner of the 1911 Nobel Prize for literature and author of the enormously successful La Vie des abeilles (The Life of the Bee).

When Maeterlinck arrived, fearful of his ignorance of motion-picture technique, Goldwyn reassured him: "I know you don't understand picture technique. That doesn't matter. All I want you to do is just go away and write your greatest book over in the form of a scenario."

A few weeks later Maeterlinck returned with a manuscript. Goldwyn was delighted and retired beaming into his office, taking the manuscript with him to read. A couple of minutes later he rushed out again screaming. "My God," he yelled, "the hero is a bee!"
