    Realists are a dying breed, I see.
    As far as a NJ thing? (can't believe you are going there, but...)
    You'll have to ask someone from NJ if there are many realists there, I've only been there a half...

    Re: Rotating Hive Bodies

    How many seams of bees do you see in that deep? I feel the present colony strength is more telling of when or if to reverse than anything else.

    Re: Pro Nuc?

    Brittle from sun exposure or cold or the property of the new plastic?

    Re: Too early to split? Southern New York

    I agree it's too early, too cold and too unsettled. That's the weather part of it.

    The colony part is >too many old bees still in the hives and not enough young bees yet>very low populations to...
