DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Re: What's flowering: Victoria
« Last post by Andersonhoney on October 23, 2016, 10:40:03 AM »
Checked out a tea tree site on Wednesday.  It's not a great flowering but what put me off was that there wasn't a single bee on it. Lots of native bees ( hover fly ).  Bees were on the Cape weed at about 1 bee per 2m□ so plenty around. I'm assuming that the nectar of the Cape weed is sweeter than that of the leptospermum. I'll go there again in a few weeks and reassess.
THE 2ND AMENDMENT / Re: Why Grandpa carries a gun: PS. I'm grandpa

"You honestly believe the second amendment gives you an edge against the federal government?  Your delusional."

The Afghans were able to hold off Russia then us with just small arms and IED's for the most part.  These "war weapons " you refer to I'm assuming you mean ar15s and the like?  What the uniformed don't realize is that if you just change the stock (the non mechanical end piece of the weapon that goes against your shoulder) an ar15 becomes nothing more than a semi automatic hunting rifle.   How ridiculous!!!!  Guns are not the problem, it's totally an issue of culture.  Chicago is a prime example.  Toughest fun laws in the country worst gun crime rate.  What Chicago does have is the majority of its young men growing up in single parent homes not knowing who their dad is.  When we are willing to address the real problem gun violence will plumet.  Where I live every house has at least 8 to 10 guns but gun violence is unheard of.  Now an hour north to Steubenville OH or hour and half to Pittsburgh and it's another story but again you're back to kids running wild in the streets while mom sucks up welfare and 40's of malt while "baby daddy" is in jail or just plain MIA.  If you want to fix the problem then address the REAL problem no matter how politically incorrect it is to do so.
GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / cottonseed meal for winter protien supplement

Has there ever been any research on using cotton seed meal for protein supplement for bees?  The analysis is in the ballpark but does it work?

The way the media and Google are trying to sway the election should be scary to ALL Americans no matter who you support or which of the lesser two evils you vote for.  Control the information, control reality.  Try googgling "why isn't Hillary in jail" no recent info appears.  All of the scandal and lies are just being swept under the rug.  There need to be some safeguards in place so that this never happens again.  Let the people decide.  They trying to take OUR country from us.  This is a dangerous and slippery slope.

The reason the media needs to keep showing her winning in the polls is so that it matches the false election vote.
George Sorrows owns the company that  builds the election machines and you know darn well he has a back door into them.
A couple of college students just proved it only took 10 seconds to take control of the electronic voting machines. Yes, seconds.

Plant growers use them with great success. IMO they'll never make it in a hive as the bees won't leave their habitat media in there. Besides, they're a sedentary hunter, which makes them a moot point, as the mites on the bees ready to hop into the developing larvae cells are the problem.

KathyP says  "the Bill of Rights was a reassurance to the people of the several states that the government would not be able to impose the thinking of Bostonians and New Yorkers or Philadelphians on the people of Virginia, Georgia,, Maine, etc., on all the people of the other States.""

WOW. That sure didn't work very well in 1860, did it?
