    Re: OSBN - Opening the Sides of the Brood Nest

    It's impossible to say if a swarm would have developed had one not done OSBN but it has proven itself to me. Some queens will swarm no matter what but my 'normal' queens don't when I open the brood...

    Re: Shelter in place...unintended consequences

    And yes, I know I've committed the cardinal sin here at Beesource of speaking badly of god Trump. I may need a break from this forum again. But, the emperor has no clothes, compassion, or concern...

    Yeah..., storage. Health care workers have been completely let down and they will pay for it with their lives. I hope my wife and I survive this. I hope you and yours does too.

    I suspect you're having the same nightmares I'm having with a wife in the direct path of this thing. Good luck to you both, especially her. Heath care workers are the true heroes.

    Re: Shelter in place...unintended consequences

    My wife is a nurse here in the States. I admit to being furious at our administration for not preparing and terrified at the lack of PPE. I hope you are better prepared in BC.

    I sell raw honey so I naturally thought the buyers would prefer glass to plastic. Nope, every single person I asked preferred the squeezable plastic. I quit glass. I sell 1 1/2 and 2 lbs, $10 and...
