It always amazes me how far across the political spectrum rational people can bee.
Cidersabuzzin is so far left its stunning. Although he or she probably thinks they are right in the center where everyone else "should bee" this is not a criticism, just an observation that fascinates me.
I think your 'observation' says it all! For what it's worth I believe I lie somewhere in between he rabid socialists on the left and the neo-con fascist right, make of that what you will. Twill all come out in the wash......I'm just hoping it doesn't drag us all down with it.
Have a nice day

These Russians I keep can get a mite defensive if I'm moving combs about. Usually don't go on a full fledged attack but they will start head butting my hands and face. I wear the veil because I find 4 of 5 bees angrily buzzing and slamming into my face to be distracting. :smile:

That's good to hear.  I was just wondering if you do get one where you have to evacuate would it take out all the bees?

We haven't been hit by a storm in almost 10 years and even then it was a glancing blow.....they survive just fine Ace ;-)

Well, I take it back! You learn something new about bees all the time - thanks!

Actually, the elimination of pain and increased mobility have remained now a couple of weeks later. This is my first experience with this topic - I would rather hope that I really don't have arthritis, but...!

I have used double qween hives on top of each other many times but only for purposes of getting them thru winter when they were weak and low on stores. I would place qween exculders above brood camber of lower hive then the supers of honey then another qween excluder then the brood camber of the other hive. just had a upper and lower entrance facing two different directions son they would not try and walk up to attack each other. works great. just tear it down in the spring. if your doing it to just get more hive in compact space. you will have to have a work platform for each row of hives. it can be done and has but it will require you to work your hive a ton more to keep their growth down as no to out build the hight limit of each level of hives. thier is videos online of people who do do this. but unless you have the ample time to work them it will be very vey hard to control them from swarming due to space .

I have arthritis in my fingers, bee stings definitely ease the soreness and I also notice it is much easier to make a fist. This is after I get brave and pull off my gloves, and get tagged " you are it".

My second yard is on a veriety of fruit trees. when the birds start picking them the bees are all over them. they love it because when the fruit rippin there is so little blooming they use it. I don't have to worry about them because of this. they will suck a fruit dry in about a hour if the skin is broken by the birds. I'll try and get some photos of this next year if i dont forget.

I would go ahead and do it and charge them a fee.  If the bees make it through the winter that's a plus
