    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...

    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...

    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.

    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'll be interested in your impressions of it, JW. I'm not sure I'll actually use it but if people chime in with positive remarks I may see how well my phone tolerates propolis. :D
