DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Split in trouble
« Last post by Sydney guy on January 21, 2017, 11:45:48 PM »
Hi everyone i did a split just before Christmas and checked a few days later to see if she was free which she was and i checked for new eggs and im so sure i saw some so i left them to do their thing. But on inspection today there was no eggs, larva or capped brood. I saw the queen and the hive is still weak in numbers. Its dry in sydney and the last couple of weeks we have had a lot of 40 degree days 2 actually hit the 45 degree mark. Could these hot days be the cause of this or is this a problem with the queen? They also had used all honey that i gave them and had next to no pollen.

Im going to start them on sugar surup today and i have also taken 2 frames of brood from another strong hive both with capoed brood, larva and eggs.

Is there anything else i can do to save this hive?

Hey, Ace - sorry to hear about the hive loss. I'm not clear on a couple of things that you say here though:

When you say varroa frass in the lower boxes, do you mean those crystal deposits in the cells?

"there was quite a bit of honey but it was all over for the majority of the frames. " not sure what you mean here

"Two or three frames were solid in each box but all on one side." I'm guessing you mean solid with capped stores... If so, that really is weird - they ate the stores on one side between two frames but not the other, and seemingly moved around the hive to do so???

With my two hive varroa wipeout last year there was barely a dead bee left in either hive - they all just left over time.

They build walls to keep people in.
Oy vey, now i see where your logic is a muck.  Do you put people in prison to keep people in or keep people out?
You never build a wall to keep people in.  You build a wall to keep animals in.  You should look back in history and see what a wall is used for.

Look at China, look at the USSR.  If you want to be great you must open your doors.

They build walls to keep people in.

You do not open the floodgates to be great.  There is nothing wrong with immigration.  There was a time we needed people to populate this country.  There was a time when we expected immigrants to assimilate.  Both those times are gone.  We don't need more people, and we don't require assimilation.  We now hand out welfare in various forms to everyone who comes through the gate.  We can't afford to do that.

We have stopped or slowed immigration in the past.  One reason was to allow those who had come to assimilate and become Americans.  If you do not do that, you end up with something like France and Germany, with immigrants imposing their customs and will on the population.  THAT is the history we should be watching.  It is now.  It is not great.

Do you have any idea what separation of church and state means?  Do you have any idea how that guarantees YOUR freedom?

You constantly amaze me with your lack of knowledge of history and the constitution.  I don't know the heart of Trump, but I can read past inaugural addresses, State of the Union addresses, etc.  All of the founding documents, debates, etc. are available for you to read.

I challenge you to find many, if any, that do not mention God, Christ, etc. 

Here are two things that Adams said and they are not contradictory.

?Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people?. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.?

? John Adams


?The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.?

? John Adams

In the first, he is talking about our beliefs as a control mechanism so that we could have a limited government.  In the second, about our country not being a theocracy. 
There is no constitutional separation of church and state.  This is a liberal construct.  People of faith have always served and been open about it.  Again, I refer you to founding documents.  Google.
