    You might be surprised come spring with the tree. If they had a chance at all, they would have still made a queen. They would have gathered stores during that process. If she made it back,...

    Thanks for taking an interest.

    Thanks for the kind words. My view is every dog has their day and sometimes you are up and sometimes you get beat down. I have been lucky so far.

    I would add one caveat to the comb thing. I think it is almost a universal position that if pollen is seen capped over in comb that that comb is contaminated and should be discarded or at least the...
