    But, you have to realize Im supplementing my bees with feed. Where as Tim doesnt, so the need to hold so much food stores in reserve

    I don't want supersedure, period. I want to use a commercial source of queens that fit the requirements.

    If it works with this type of beekeeping, then it's a win-win.

    'artificial supercedure' = you are requeening and not letting the bees do it. not really natural, not really sustainable in the sense of not requiring outside 'sustainance'.

    Well, that depends on what you mean by easy ...

    You don't actually have to type the formatting, copy-n-paste is what I use. But the approach you used is probably the simplest.

    When I work with quoting, I use two Beesource windows, one is the message I am composing, the second window is the post/thread I'm quoting from. With highlight, Ctrl-C, CTRL-V it is easier than typing from my perspective.

    UPDATE:
    SP, I wasn't poking fun at your response. I was poking fun at the "moral imperative" concept!

    Multi-quote is another feature you might like to use here. Ignore his comment about needing to go back and uncheck the posts. No bug here.

    Moral imperatives are often the reason for changing the status quo.

    Perhaps Tim really is a bigger threat to the status quo than we realize?

    Horse Hockey!!! Moral imperatives don't pay the bills. Let's see where this all sits in 10 years. The wind(s of change) may change direction.

    Well, the current 'wind of change' is the spreading hybrid swarm. Those would be the resistant ferals that are returning to the areas where the previous non resistant ferals were wiped out.

    However, they're derived from very diverse genetic stock including Brazilian AHB.

    You can't outrun that.
