RDY-B. OK,OK, OK. You have finally caught my interest. I actually had no interest in measuring cell size and that was that. But...just for the fun of it, I'll give it a whirl. I have several different natural combs hanging around that I have collected. I am not sure how to measure, but I will figure that one out pretty quick, not sure if I can get around to it today.
We have had days of rain, and I mean big rain and wind, horrible weather. I was going out to feed the bees yesterday, there was a bit of a break in the rain and I got all ready, 9 gallons of sugar syrup in my wheelbarrow, headed out to the bees, and the skies opened up and rained like there was no tomorrow. Oh brother, suddenly, I really didn't feel like going out there anymore :roll:
I was told by both my bee instructors in response to an e-mail that I sent them that we should this year be treating our colonies with Fumagilan-B for nosema. Last year here we did not. But with all the fears of the CCD and possibility of it coming to Canada, they are advising to treat, which I am ready to do. 5 grams mixed in 4 litres of water.
I woke up early this morning (up early regardless, but was up really early), I think it is a change in the barometric pressure (I do love the clearing skies). I went outside to observe the night air and it was crisp, the humidity was not there, you know, the rain causes the air to be very damp feeling :). Nope, clear and crip, no stars, but I am sure the sun will be shinin' later on, yeah!!!!! Have a wonderful day, best of our beautiful life. Cindi
