    Re: Benefits of Queen Wing Clipping?

    Wow....a few of us must be on the same brain waves or something. I've been doing some reading on the subject as well and may experiment with it this next season. I was going to start a thread as...

    Re: Upset/Disappointed/Confused/etc.

    Sometimes there won't be any bees at all, not even brood. I've had colonies exhibit the same type of behavior. I have also seen it in early summer when the population of bees is at its highest. There...

    Did you measure your mite levels throughout the year? If so, when was the last time you monitored?

    Re: Do you use terramycin on your bees?

    Antibiotics have their place in unique situations. In the case of foulbrood (European and American), I really do not see the need for the use of teramycin. European foulbrood is always in a...

    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,...

    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...

    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...
