    Re: And now this.... GM bees.

    Correct.
    The radiation is a type of electromagnetic waves of a certain wave lengths (just like visible light waves, infrared waves, ultraviolet waves, x-ray waves, etc).

    Re: healty hives that refuse to store food

    It is not that they refuse to eat.
    They do not store much.
    Instead, they eat it ALL and convert into the growth, no matter what the season is and not matter if they can afford it.
    I got a case of...

    Re: healty hives that refuse to store food

    Terminate these bees as unfit (while trying to squeeze something useful of them).
    What is one good reason to keep them?

    Re: tiny swarm

    They actually could have a smallish virgin queen.
    Hard to spot.
    Not really crazy, just a very late swarm.
    Feed and watch.

    Re: Lazy bees, too late to re-queen?

    Sure.
    Basically, bees can not think - therefore they can not be lazy as-if humans.
    However, some bees are clearly not productive (sometimes terribly so) in a given setting.
    Maybe the setting is...

    Re: Lazy bees, too late to re-queen?

    Strangely, I will subscribe to the idea that "lazy" bees exist.

    Since I have a great variety of bees, some bees are definitely more industrious than others.

    Re: How do I relax w/bees?

    Bad idea.
    What IF someone actually needs your urgent attention?
    What IF they can not get close either.
    What are they to do? Throw rocks at your?

    Forget this non-sense and the pop-culture gimmicks.
    Yeh, those guys are cool and whatever.

    For the most of us - this is how things are.
    Not much else you can do.
