In my opinion, both are wrong. Medical care should not be the responsibility of the federal government.

How does one "test" for Africanization?  How/is the DNA different?
Under a microscope they measure certain segments of the wings to determine the genetics.
Reciently they have determined that they can also measure the angle of certain segments of the wings.

i don't think they own it now. its still obama crap. he started  it and the Dem's knew that once it was done it would be almost impossible to get it undone at one time. so they think they win eather way. the problem with laws and regs. once they are made its had to undo.

As I said in the other thread, Tell that to the families of the 9/11 victims. Death is the only thing these animals understand.

DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Re: Winter Pack Down

Yep.I try and have it all done by then. Camping with friends and family that weekend. On a busy year that can be my first chance to enjoy their company. Better to pack them down and have them fill the lid, than leave them space and have them freeze/starve.
I'll start packing down at the end of next week. Should finish by easter. Then may move some further north before it gets too cool.

Instrumentation.  You have to send the bees into a lab that has the right equipment.

There are a few problems with strong hives.  They get your hopes up and could die in the Spring, they could swarm or peter out or just limp along the following season.  Last years success does not guarantee this years success.

Correct me if I'm wrong but, I thought that the Joseph Clemens system uses a queenless nuc as a starter/finisher.  They just add a frame of brood each week to keep it strong and going. 
I was thinking about taking frames of nurse bees from my main hives again but would they kill the queen from the nuc?
 
Adding nurse bees shouldn't pose a problem to the queen.  I've added frames with bees to nucs and weak hives to help them out and haven't had a problem.

Ya I'm modifying it slightly. I feel that it'd take a lot of resources away from my production hives to put together a starter/finisher that large. I figure I can start with a standard nuc and let them fill it out and take the queen out and it won't significantly change the overall design drastically.

Apparently the republicans realized that Trump care is no care at all for those that need it.  From here on in it is no longer Obama care it is Trump care or Republican care cus they own it now.  I'm thinking Ryan is going to be the new cry baby like Banier but for different reasons.
