I do have to agree that this report was a lot better than much of what gets reported. I should give the reporter a bit of a break.

Many reporters however are a little less than honest... The Duke Lacrosse team incident and the more recent example being the rolling stone rape story. A more local example of that is this report of school funding in Broome County New Yuck. http://www.wbng.com/news/local/State-aid-reaching-wealthy-districts-but-not-struggling-ones-309433551.html My wife teaches at Deposit. The school they claim is the 5th richest in the county. They have over 90% of their students on free and reduced lunch. The numbers are skewed because of a large amount of unused acreage that is owned by New York City for the Cannonsville Reservoir. The Deposit superintendent did call the station and supposedly the reporter is planning to come talk and maybe do a follow up story.

Great news. The only time I ran across a LW hive, I had the same result, they accepted a caged queen. It was my first year and they had dwindled so much, I think they were demoralized. Glad you saved it. G

That is unfortunate considering WIFI is just about everywhere in the cities!
I only seem to notice it when I am near the modem, but if I go to a TV store I start getting sleepy after a while. I am a retired pilot and years of wearing active sound suppressing headsets at high altitudes must have conspired to make me susceptible. Also as a musician (amateur) using stereo headsets and headset mics for hours probably didn't help.

We have a cell but only use it when necessary.

Re: the bees, I have heard rumours and seen lots of youtubes. that cell towers affect them. I am not inclined to believe the studies that say that this was disproved because there is lots of science epidemiological work done by a number of authors such as Dr Milham who have shown that the problem is real. Science can be bought and the amount of money in the cellphone business can easily buy "properly done science".

A friend of mine is an electrical engineer. A friend of his, a recently retired school principal, moved into a building and suddenly started to have serious heart issues. Weird heartbeats etc. Then he had a heart attack and died within about 6 months. This guy was quite active having been into karate and before he died Tai Chi.

My friend went into his apartment after he died and took a trifield meter. The EMF was generally a bit high, but in the bedroom it was off the clock. The superintendent let him into the parking garage and sure enough right below the bedroom there was a whole bunch (I believe 18) of Smart meters. The Electric utility of course disregarded the complaint. So my friend took some metal window screen and made a cap to go over his meter glass, then he ran a wire from that to the earth. This cut down about 75% of the signal, which is enough to eliminate the problem to a large degree and the electric company seemed to not notice because the signal output is a lot more than necessary. His math showed that the wifi was pulsing about 1500 times per day.

Basically a radio transmitter is a microwave that is transmitting all the time, even when no calls are being made. Any pilot out of school knows it is bad karma to leave a RADAR transmitter on at anytime when on the ground because when RADAR first came out during WW2 the ground crews could feel a warm sensation in their.... you know, ahem privates. This was known to lead to sterility.

Cell towers are even worse than radio transmitters because they have had laws passed that allow them to be plunked down in housing areas as long as the tower is less than a certain height above ground level so they get put on apartment buildings or telephone poles.

If you go onto YT you can see vids on cancer clusters, PPL with serious health issues of various kinds around cell towers, but most PPL have no idea because it does not occur to them to look because the PPL who own the cell towers also own the media outlets. You are best to be about 1 to 1.5 KM from a cell tower.  (.6 to .9 miles)

I just want winter hardy stock. Sure, there will always be winter losses. But there is also something to be said for genetics that are known to survive harsh winters.

That's great! The one LW hive I had was one of the few times I ever saw a Buckfast queen rejected - in 38 years!

Ok did that and was told there is about an inch of soil if lucky plus its hot and humid! The bees have viral diseases and fungal diseases, hive beetles and mites so its no surprise that the bee keepers are few with no large apiary in the county.

I have a few milkweed flowers open but lots of buds on the rest of them. I also have a lot of clover in bloom.
