Strange Velbert, I've never seen or heard of such thing.
Thanks for this explanation. This is exactly what I saw this Spring. Saw two queens last summer and then again in March. By April the original had chewed up wings and was gone within weeks.When bees supersede, they will not kill the old queen straight away, and for a time there will be two queens in the hive. The old one gets picked on a bit and will commonly get her wings chewed off.
You never know, I've seen dumber answers solve problems before.So, are you saying you don't want the flame shooting out the smoker nozzle? I need a new mentor!
