    I used my turkey feather to carry out my next experiment.......

    I used a four ounce brown medicine bottle that comes with a dropper, filled it with olive oil and added my drops of essential oils, ( eight drops wintergreen, three drops pennyroyal "starting out modest") applied drops to the tip of my feather and carefully swabbed the bee deck with a thin layer.

    Oh, and there's a smart spider handing around the front pathway of one of my hives. I tore down her web two days ago because she's capturing bees in her web.

    Well this morning she built it up again. LOL

    Had another one of my honey bees in her web.

    Well, I took it down again. Maybe she'll take the hint....

    I had one of those spiders. She got bigger than I'd ever seen one of them before. Eventually I captured her and took her several hundred yards away. She was too beautiful to do anything else, but she was eating too many bees.

    Hope she didn't starve.
