    A bit more at 5.1.1.1.5 but not what I was remembering. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK200983/

    Re: Shelter in place...unintended consequences

    Thought I would throw out a good story. (or go Pats) from the Boston Globe.

    Re: Queen Not Laying Coming Out of Winter

    But that is not the whole story or northern beekeepers would come out of winter with a pile of LW hives.

    Re: Queen Not Laying Coming Out of Winter

    What is young? It does appear to be true that a hive can refuse to raise a queen and still not go LWs. Maybe the cutoff is middle aged. As young as they feel.

    Cotton Gloves for PPE

    If you are at the point of wearing gloves to shop is cotton a good layman's choice? Not there yet, but closer county by county. Leave them lie for a few days or throw them in the wash. Medical...

    Re: Queen Not Laying Coming Out of Winter

    A small cluster of brood with no attached bees or sugar syrup would be worth a try to me but you are the one...

    Re: Queen Not Laying Coming Out of Winter

    It is not brood that suppresses LW in the winter. Brood might kick her off laying, it seems to with an introduced queen that is slow or with a newly mated queen.

    Re: Shelter in place...unintended consequences

    I am not saying there is no shared fault. Local fault goes down to individuals as well. Been to the hardware store, Lowes, & Walmart myself.

    The Feds cannot respond fast enough to local problems, and should not be expected to.

    In what sense is Covid a local problem?

    Pandemic team question is a bit of misdirection itself. What was done or not done with warnings is a valid question.

    Re: sugar sold out?

    My wife was after sugar last week for just regular shopping. None in two Grocery chains or Walmart. Online a few days later, Walmart said no 10lbs but had 25s. Went there, no 25s but plenty of 10s...

    Reminds me of the study showing ticks are changing their gut bacteria allowing them to overwinter farther North. Creatures are fascinating, even the nasty ones.
