    I guess I shouldn't have said a more natural way of beekeeping, but rather give the bees a way to form comb more natural to the bee's building techniques.

    How about the pastel color choices? No queen excluder either. Any links to the official POTUS beekeeper for media statements?

    This article says that the bees are a Maryland mixed breed bee, with known Russian and Caucasian genetics.

    I also ran across another article that says there might be two beehives at the White House. However, I think they are getting two hives confused with two deeps.

    It's something new that the gov has going with the bees, they fall under Obama Bee Care. Don't worry, under the new Obama bee plan you will not need a queen excluder, real change for the modern beekeeper.

    I must be ahead of things. I don't use excluders either. Most of the time anyway.

    You have far superior eyesight than I have. Not sure how anyone could tell if there is a queen excluder on or not. They do come in several different styles you know. Some as thin as a piece of plastic.

    You know, I thought there would be a little more understanding from the guard than what I observed. I told him I was qualified to work bees and could give the big guy a little free PR on the Internet, but he wasn't amused. They're all so starchy around there! I gave a friendly wave to the other guard on the White House grounds as he started walking my direction and then ran away.

    Also, pastel colors cutting edge defense vs. AHBs. No self respecting AHB would ever put up with such wimpy pastels and swarm to new locale.
