    Re: Aficanized bees are fake

    Forecast is for dry/warm weather starting late next week, though.

  5. Re: Anyone had a hive abscond in winter and return in spring?

    I don't think they left in Feb/Mar - that's just when I checked on the hive and noticed they were gone. I don't bother the bees during winter, so I'm not sure when they packed up.
  6. Anyone had a hive abscond in winter and return in spring?

    I had a package hive that I installed in our back yard last spring. It built up well and looked healthy going into winter. I didn't extract any honey - left all of their stores for them to...

    Re: Sting pain index study

    The thing about getting a SOLID sting on the nose, is that it's like getting punched in the nose - your eyes water up real bad, "snot" starts running out of your nose - heck, you even drool a little....

    Sting pain index study

    So a graduate student at Cornell did a study to determine what the most painful places on the body to get stung are.

  17. Re: Swarm Capture like you've probably never seen before! Can't do this in the city..

    My main business is Class 3 firearms wholesaler, so I've got the kit to make that shot (w/IR laser, but I'd prefer to do it w/thermals)!

    That was a great video - thanks for sharing! :)
  18. Re: This is what one bee sting to the nose looks like.

    That sucks!

    I've been stung on the nose twice and both times it was the worst sting experience by far (one of 'em in particular was just like getting punched in the nose).
