Just wondering, in bee magazines and farm catalogues I see advertised an electronic device that when activated is said to repel predators, including bears. It apparently does this by means of red flashing lights. does this really work? has anybody tried them? Do they have any effect on pets? just wondering?

Perhaps, its black locust? A very thorny tree. I would say it would be unusual to have a thorny trunk , but then again , maybe not.

Mr. Saw; Glad to see somebody else using this handy little device. Most people donít know what Iím talking about. A brisk shaking will do. It's plastic, the water doesnít stay with it . I have trouble with the wax and honey adhering to it , plugging it up and compromising its effectiveness to the point it will begin to tear cells. I never test the honey for water content, it's a non issue as far as I am concerned. If one is judicial and diligent in segregating out uncapped frames, there is no need.

I'm new to the bee world, absolutely love it. I'm curious, after removing the burr comb, what is the next step. I'd like to save it to someday make something with it, but I dont know what to do in the meantime. How do you clean it and store it for later use.
Thanks. I dunno

Are you certain that these dead bees are not drones?  It is about that time of year where they get kicked out.

He said the frames had 50-60 bees, I assumed he didnt transfer the attending nurses. Thats why I suspect chilled brood. G chop chop

Isn't that the real factor in determining actual threat?

so you'd be good living in a country where 100's of rockets are fired at civilian targets every day.  you had 15 seconds to get into any shelter.  you always had to be aware of the location of shelters.  you had to teach your children from birth about running into shelters.  you had to worry about terrorists taking your kids and killing them.  you were required to serve in the military to protect your country from the terrorists. 

hey, as long as they are currently sort of incompetent and have not gotten to lucky...except for the odd murder of teenagers, it's all good!

This guy is hopelessly lost.
I have now heard this from Loumaro, my accepted authority, and therefore know it to be true.  No more investigation needed.  We are done here.

And what makes you think human behavior is so predicable?

it generally is, within a range of behaviors.  that's why we have lateral thinkers, to hopefully consider the things outside the range. ;-0  that's helpful, but most behaviors are predictable.

So comparing Hamas to Russia,China,Germany is a fair comparison? How in the world that comparison gets made is beyond me. Seriously.

well, lets see...3 of them have engaged in genocide against jews.  3 of them stated hatred of jews.  all 4 have engaged in genocide of ethinic or religious groups.  all 4 have had nationalist and expansionist agendas....

that's without giving the comparisons any though and suffering 02 deficiency after the gym.

give me some time.  i'll come up with a few more....

more telling and to the point of this post thread, might be the attitude pre ww2 to the current So comparing Hamas to Russia,China,Germany is a fair comparison? How in the world that comparison gets made is beyond me. Seriously. in rearguards to attacks against Jews, Christians, other minorities....
as FDR did in the 30's, we do now....

Ok so mentality/attitude wise they are/were alike. I will concede that point.  But how about militarily, that is the actual ability to invade/defeat their "enemy". Are they similar in weaponry,skill,numbers?  Isn't that the real factor in determining actual threat?

I'm a first year beek, so I can't give you any great advise, but I installed a package and never did stop feeding. The guy I bought it from said to keep feeding first year. Makes sense to me as I hear others say don't feed, feed only when necessary and after thinking, if I feed while flows are going on then the so called syrup that isn't the healthiest is mixed with the healthy honey which to me is better than eating healthy for a while then totally unhealthy later. Did you see larva in both hives? How many times have you inspected? The light package may have super ceded and swarmed on you and something bad may have happened to the new one. I haven't used any chems yet, so no opinion there. If you are in dearth and have a small colony, watch for robbing, maybe close up the entrance to 3 inches. Also, many others may read your post if you title it better. Most post are questions that need help with so putting a title on it will probably get you better help from someone that has experienced the same thing. Just a suggestion.

the commercial bee keeper is not playing with a hobby; his lively hood depends on his knowledge and has probably forgotten more bee lore than several bee clubs will gain in a lifetime.  thanks to a texas commercial for a pile of information he freely gave me
