As much as it pains me, I have to agree with KathyP on both counts.  Sad

Just sitting on land can get expensive, whereas sitting on other types of investment doesn’t cost you anything until you realize a capital gain (or loss).  Sitting on (or speculating on) land can get pretty expensive over time; there are taxes, special assessments for developments, water infrastructure bills if you’re in a city, maintenance, fees, fines, and all the rest of the crap local govs can hit you with.  Then there is the capital gains tax when you sell and the lovely fee the realtors want for doing nothing.  Check out what Warren Buffet says about investing in land sometime.  But I digress......

I'm in Australia - it's currently late spring (I probably should have mentioned that)

So does the person drawing welfare.

no they don't.  in my world they would.  in this world, even if they pay on some income, they get earned income credit and probably child tax credits and get back more than they would have paid in.

I'd let it go until early next spring. All the bees will have moved up into the top box(s), over winter, leaving the bottom empty. Remove it, fix it, stick it back on top. I'm lazy cool.

That could work too, probably easier.

Would it not be easier to find the queen and put her above the excluder?

First year beek - appears I didn't have the bee-gap set properly in one of my hives, and now have burr comb formed between 2 frames in the bottom brood box (they were on undrawn foundation). I know what I did wrong, and my 2nd hive isn't having any issues.

However, the comb has capped brood in it so I don't want to destroy the comb just yet, so to correct the issue I was thinking about moving the offending frames into the box above and moving the drawn comb with brood in it from the above box down into it's place. Then, placing an excluder between the two boxes until the brood emerges, when I can then remove the unwanted burr comb and get the bees to re-draw the frame. I can then remove the excluder, and let the queen continue on with her job.

Does this sound like an appropriate way to deal with the situation? Or should I be doing something else to rectify it?

Many thanks,

Andy

During the time he was waiting, how many hands did his money go through. Each one was helped, and each time it moved, the economy benefited. Yes, he contributed.
