Welcome to the forum!   Happy to have you here.

Thanks Rurification.  I had asked for this info before and did not get an answer.  I live in NE TX ...  Again thanks

Paus -  I'm glad to help and sorry I didn't see your initial request.   These boxes have made all the difference for me.    Hardware cloth covers is a great idea for where you are.   I'm pretty sure Sawdustmaker uses those, too. 

Have a great season!

Just an added comment.... you do realize if you leave more than a couple queen cells in a populous hive they will still swarm... and maybe more than once...

Yup.  They will probably swarm again based on what I saw today.

 ""Should smokers or grossly obese individuals pay some kind of tax   [They do. A big one. Check out the tobacco tax]   that would be used to help with their medical expenses?""  [Too bad all of it is wasted in general fund

I think you will find most grossly obese individuals are government fed with food stamps and other handouts. They don't have taxable incomes.

I'm for a Public Health Service that is free to all citizens.

Nothing is ever free.  Someone has to pay but the cost of basic health care and preventative medicine should be spread across the whole population.  If you can do something to improve your health and you chose not to then maybe you should pay a tax or a penalty to encourage you to do something on your own.  I think this would eliminate some of the cost.  Especially the ridiculous amount of pills this country consumes.

On the contrary, I think people should pay their own way for basic health care and preventive care.  It's cstastophic events and diseases that bankrupt people, not the incidental expenses.  Some people, however, ignore basid health care and preventive care, which leads to catastrophic disease.  If a person smokes, for example, he/she is likely to wind up with heart problems or cancer.  Poor choices in diet can contribute to health problems.  Should smokers or grossly obese individuals pay some kind of tax that would be used to help with their medical expenses? 

Well, it's easy for me to be critical of the drain on the treasury, I guess.  I'm on Medicare, but I recall not so long ago paying cash for medical services and those services were reasonable.  Now I look at the charges for medical services billed to Medicare and they are outrageously high.  Medicare has skewed medical costs so that everyone is forced to buy insurance (including) Medicare or be bankrupted by the system.

But he already has and it is blatantly obvious.

Examples?

Most of what they asked him he would be wrong to talk about.  He did what he should do and didn't answer specifics about cases.
