I would say desperate need of water and food.  No living thing can live without either.

We only want a controlled border.

Most everyone wants a controlled boarder.  How is building a wall going to do it when they are already going under the fence?  How is insulting every foreign nation going to help?  How are you going to built a completely ridiculous wall that won't stop anyone and make your neighboring country pay for it?  That is insanity.

That is the legal entries. We aren't talking about them. We are talking about the 11million ILLEGAL entries. As the little boy and little girl said, "THERE IS A DIFFERENCE".
Nobody wants a closed border. We only want a controlled border.

Is it your contention that people should be able to come and go as they please, or to inhabit a country without going through the proper procedures?

We should look at why illegal aliens come and go across the Mexico / US boarder and either solve that problem or have a system of registry like for instance farm workers.  It can't be a system of years of red tape.  That doesn't work.  The drug trafficking is not an easy problem to solve.  A wall certainly isn't going to do it.  Cooperation with Mexican authorities would help.  Spitting in their face is going to hurt us.
It is people like Trump that fought for Nafta looking for cheaper forms of manufacturing.  You expect him to hurt his friends because it doesn't directly hurt him?  He is most definitely part of the swamp swimming with all the gaiters.  That part about America first sounds wonderful.  What American wouldn't want that?  What he really means is, me and my buddies first (mostly me).  The crumbs he might distribute to the rest of America.

No American wants a free come as you go open boarder.  And there never was such a thing and there never will be.
This gives you an idea of what we allow into this country from where:

look at the difference between 1980 and 2016.  Canada and Mexico don't even show up.  There are way more Asians that came into this country in 1980 then now so they are already here.

When you say varroa frass in the lower boxes, do you mean those crystal deposits in the cells?
yes
Quote
"there was quite a bit of honey but it was all over for the majority of the frames. " not sure what you mean here
like spotty brood the honey was left in some cells and not in others across the whole frame.  Possible that happened because the honey was crystallized and some cells removed and filled with nectar so they ate the nectar honey but didn't eat the crystallized honey?  I don't know.  I have never seen this before.
Quote
"Two or three frames were solid in each box but all on one side." I'm guessing you mean solid with capped stores... If so, that really is weird - they ate the stores on one side between two frames but not the other, and seemingly moved around the hive to do so???
Out of 8 frames two to three would be solid honey on both sides of the frame.  Maybe that hapened because they kept to the warm side of the hive.  There are two hives on a pallet so the common sides never see sun.

not any bible but a christian bible.

john

John, when was the old testament written?  Way before Christianity.  So every christian bible is based on non christian beliefs.  Christ was a radical.  He founded his church (the Catholic church) and then more radicals stemmed off into their own beliefs and created new christian churches.  The Catholic church did terrible things to non Catholics in the name of Christ.  This was not Christ's teachings but the powers to be claimed it was.  The bible is nothing more than a instrument which represents a fear of a supreme being that will punish your soul if you lie.  Not many people in Washington take anything in the bible seriously and certainly not your Mr. Trump.

There are far less Christians in the world than non christians.  So how well do you think it is going to go for America if our american leader spits in the face of these other people whether he holds his hand on your bible or not.  When a civilization builds a wall, be it physical or idealistic, to keep everyone different on the outside from coming in it becomes the start of the decline of Greatness.  History proves what will happen.  Look at China, look at the USSR.  If you want to be great you must open your doors.

Nothing in Mr. Trumps past shows any sign of christianity.  That is the first thing a Christian should be able to see and know about him.

I would have expected that ot is getting late to do splits in Sydney or to try and safe one?

I have found in the past that eggs can be killed by extreme heat - more so in a weak hive with not enough bees to keep the space cool.

I think you are doing all you ca.

Sawdstmakr,
I guess losing hives is pretty common. All of my friends have lost at least one. Kinda tough when you only have 2. My new hobby is more difficult than I thought!
