    Here it is........the answer to our problems:

    Given that time and space may or may not exsist and that our problems are partly phycological as beekeepers and given that the said problems are relativly and actually microscopic. All the beekeepers in North America need to pool their money and buy an island. On which we will stock millions of gallons of mead along with provisions. We will all ajourn to said island where we will eat, drink, and be marry. Bees will be a forbidden topic of conversation and after one years time, we will come back........refreshed. Those with the strongest colonies will be the breeders using other survivors as drone stock. With this severe lack of overall bee population the mites and virus' and bacteria, and fungus will fall victom to starvation.

    Are you moving them back from southern NM again? How are your bees looking?

    Sounds like fun but I think we would all be un-married and unable to afford the bee habit.

    Not my idea, George deserves all of the credit. I thin he stole the idea from an old-timey swarm management book.
