    I saw that the other day. I had to watch it three times before I convinced myself it was real. I stopped at the store the other day and the store keeper commented on all the pollen in the air. I mentioned I noticed my bees bringing a lot of pollen in. He told me about seeing the whole show on the Discovery Channel. Creepy.
    I've found it easier to keep bees than keep relationships. At least when I'm stung by bees I know why.

    I think I've heard that before. Was that Tracheal mites or Varroa? Or was it SHB? Or maybe it was AHB. But we're all still keeping bees. [img]smile.gif[/img] It just keeps getting harder. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    "We're" not all still keeping bees. Many have got out.
    But have no fear, packages from overseas and cheap honey from China will keep everyone happy!

    The day those hornets enter the country, I'm hanging up my veil. Getting stung to death by AHB is one thing. But I draw the line at getting eaten alive and fed to brood.

    Man! These hornets must be bad! Due to my computer, I can't watch the video. But, we will manage. Hey, speaking of china honey, did yall hear that ALL honey coming in from overseas is being inspected now? They found a new really bad drug in some china honey. Honey prices are jumping!

    If they come I will invent a new use for my tennis racket! It will be quite a sight to watch a grown man, dressed up in a bee suit. wildly swinging a tennis racket and bellowing "take that!" at the top of my lungs!!

    Brother Adam saaid they have human hornet guards on hives in the middle east. The guards swat the hornets that come to kill the bees. Maybe you can get some high school kid to do it cheap. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Imagine how many beekeepers would lose the hives due to being on Beesource! Many would be doomed. [img]smile.gif[/img]
