The military industrial complex needs conflicts to keep their products moving. Both sides of the isle eat from their table. Who is the most aggressive, invasive, country on the globe? Not Russia, Not China, but it is the US. Again, both sides of the isle are to be blamed.

Some swarms will hang close by for a couple days, others only a couple of minutes.

I see sun flowers as a pollen source not a nectar source.

I said last year that it was the last year I'll mark queens. Of course that's subject to change. Last year I started off marking my queens so I could determine if next spring the swarm was a secondary swarm. I stopped marking on my 5th hive. Two of the queens flew off on me. I found one and put her back in the hive. The very two that had queens fly were also found the next spring to be queenless.

HONEYBEE REMOVAL / Re: Attic removal question

Thanks Jim. The reason I don't want to use smoke is because it's inside these folks super nice house. They may not like it as well. I'd have to light the smoker, and carry it through there house and up into there attic area. I'll have a better idea of what I'm looking at in the morning. I shouldn't have said the ac  man got "lit up" they said he got it twice. But he was also up there banging around with a flashlight. I've got a good sized hive here in my yard that is just super calm and a pleasure to work with. But one night I went down there with a flashlight and they let me know just how much they don't like to be bothered after dark  :shocked:

Muslims have proven through history that they like a good fight.

OMG  We train one Muslim group how to kill another Muslim group and provide weapons each and every time we get involved in the middle east.  Then 10 years pass and we don't like the group we trained to fight so we train another group, sometimes multiple groups, give them arms to fight the group we once supported.  That is what history has proven.
It is time to learn from history as we keep repeating the same mistake. 
Solution:
Stop coming in taking sides with guns a blazing and keep out of the tribal wars.  Provide humanitarian support and safe haven to those that ASK.  NO GUNS.  Sanction the rulers who commit atrocities against their own.  History has proven this works.  It will always work because you gain friends instead of enemies.

I think there r lots of reasons why bees cluster on a queen, by the way one of the itallians which they had clustered on is now accepted again by the bees and she's laying eggs,  the other two one Italian and one carnica i transformed them to new hives in hope i won't lose them,  thanks a lot my friend

Oh thanks sawdsmakr, in my case I thought that perhaps bees saw something unusual with two frames of hatching brood,  perhaps there aren't there sufficient stores of honey and they wanted to stop her from laying eggs
