Part of my childhood was spent just east of Ypsilanti, Michigan.  We had a LOT of lightening bugs then.  Used to catch them in jars, make rings, etc.  They do seem to come and go, wax and wane.  I guess most things do.  Some years I see more of them here in Missouri than other years.

Since we had been getting timely rain, I was mowing about half of what we normally mow.  When that started to bloom good with white clover, I cut the other half.  This worked well and the bees always had plentiful blooms to work.  Things are drying out now though.

I should mention also, that 2" hole is venting at the top because I have a deep upside down, top feeding sugar and a jar of water only since they might not have enough foragers.

I built 5 frame nucs and have 1.5 inch by 3/8" entrance on them. I also drilled a 2" round hole in the bottom and screened it with hardware cloth and over that regular screen to keep the ants out. Two days ago it was 100 degrees and the bees were on the entrance fanning and it was crowded. They were not all out bearding though. They are raising queens and my question is, can they keep brood cool enough and has anybody got there nucs so hot that brood has died?

I've never noticed any difference on how my bees draw 5/8/10 frame hives.  My 8 frame set ups are typically taller so I tend to use them inside the city limits.  A 10 frame deep full of honey is a bit to lift, an 8 frame deep full of honey is nowhere as bad.  I do use my 8 frame hives to get deep frames drawn and I should add that all my 8 frame equipment is deep.

Joining Beemaster from Dallas, Texas.  Got 2 hives in April and they are rocking.  I am trying to learn all I can.

Once the blooms start turning dark, I mow it to about 2 1/2 " and it will come back and bloom again.  Some of mine is blooming for the third time.

Good post Ken.   

When a person has been in Washington for 40 years or more, they may be on good committees, but they have usually forgot what they were first elected for or to do.  They are rich if they weren't to start with.  I can say one thing a lot here can't, I did vote for Chris, he lives about 13 miles up the road from me.  He went to school with my eldest son.  I do agree with some of the things he has to say.  If we had term limits for all elected officials maybe they would do better.   
It doesn't matter which side of the isle they sit on, they can do good or not.  I vote for the person, not the party.  I do think we need to get rid of a lot of what we have now.
