ROFL! OMG, I can't stop laughing. :applause:Are you burning your kids weed or something funny that they just stay there stoned? They might just be so used to you they do not care. I love bees like that.
No, in any case mine don't. My bees are are 16 miles away and I almost didn't bother to take the smoker with me. I had a spray bottle of water, but I decided it would be prudent to have it with me today.Do the bees tend to swarm around your head during inspections like they did when I first hived them?
I read somewhere that you could staple #8 hardware cloth over the inner cover hole and sit the feeder jar on top of the screen. The bees were supposed to be able to feed through the screen and when it came time to change out the jar, no bees! This is how I set mine up but I'm still waiting on bee's. Has anyone tried this? Any disadvantages to doing it?I think I squished a bee trying to switch feeders because they immediately gathered around the feeder hole in the inner cover and I couldn't get them to move so I could put the new jar in.
