    Re: Insects feel pain?

    It's funny you ask. I just got done watching my newborn daughter nurse. The minute she was born, she started nursing. I will never forget how she just knew what to do without being taught. I can only...

    Re: Insects feel pain?

    True. However, as an actual wildlife biologist, my question is where does the instinct come from/originate. That is a perfectly legitimate question and one that has been asked by many other...

    Re: Insects feel pain?

    Besides the scientific evidence that states that insects have similar nerve endings as humans, consider the observations we all have made amongst the bees. If you touch them, they obviously feel,...

    Perhaps Mark's fly is unzipped and he is unaware of it? :o :D

    Re: African hive inspection

    What's all the hype about Africanized bees? Those look so docile, and did you see those pretty little white spots in that man's gloves? ;)

    Re: walt wright's checkerboarding

    I meant to ask you if you were feeding or not. I do not, but I overwinter in double deeps if at all possible (the smaller colonies I will feed). Those larger colonies are the ones with 30-50 lbs of...

    Re: walt wright's checkerboarding

    I find this most interesting, especially since I'm just north of you Squarepeg. My colonies ALWAYS build wax before swarming. I usually see white wax by mid March.....and no, they haven't swarmed by...

    Re: all in one queen cells cast in wax

    So, it's that way in Finland too? :lookout:
    I wouldn't have thought of putting them in a clothes washer. I imagine that saves quite a bit of time. I'll have to remember that one. Thanks!

    Re: African hive inspection

    You know, I would actually be willing to work a hive like that at some point. I think I could learn a lot and I would certainly be able to maintain better composure with what I call a "hot" hive here...

    Re: Propolis on purpose: Building boxes ???

    True. But, I won't discredit him entirely on this one. If he were to run a seam of liquid nails down the 4 inside corners, it would help to improve integrity drastically. This is what I do since I'm...

    I'd say that's possible. But it depends on the queens laying ability. My question here is what if a large cell queen and a small cell queen is laying at the same rate, thus bees hatching and making...
