Just rant for fun here.could it be a bit of mead would cure some of the problems of beekeeping by calming the beekeeper a bit.Just a thought after one gets a replie for a problem from all over the country and is completely confused on what to do.May be a glass of mead and set back and give it some thought.

maybe not a simple cure but a simple thought or question.Why is it a colonie of bees lives for years in a tree with out a beekeeper?
