    Good words of wisdom, but my best looking colony, which is going to be my main queen source this year, is a swarm that moved into some used bee equipment in a friend's barn last summer. Maybe it should be "hardly ever" in the quote.

    Most of the wisdom I have acquired in life was obtained immediately after I could have used it.
