Michael You have outdone yourself again. This is incredible. My small humble notes are below.

European Honey Bees = bees from Europe as opposed to bees originating in Africa or other parts of the world or bees crossbred with those from Africa.

cross link this with Apis Cerana.

Split = To divide a colony for the purpose of increasing the number of hives.

This one has some old timers who would split hairs. A divide is when you use hive bodies to increase hives. A split is when you take frames to create a new hive. I would cross link it with Divide.


Sincerely,
Brendhan

I've added quite a bit to the dictionary based on suggestions here and on Beesource.

Michael, this is a fantastic list - a must learn for anyone trying to be a Master Beekeeper.  As with the rest of your site, what a great reference - for so many terms!

My only suggestion is that if George Imirie is in fact the originator of the term "bee haver" it would be nice to note that in the definition.

I also really liked the way you cross referenced - if the term is something you have written about elsewhere on your site in detail, you provide a link - really nice.

Sometimes I was too lazy to provide the description and just did the link.  Smiley

.

That is fine dictionary. Those are many, but often not that much words.


I noticed
worker queen = in desperate need of queen many worker bees ovary starts to develop and  up to 5-20% of workers may show enlarged ovules.  So, "shaking worker queen away"  is not possible.

Worker policing  = worker eliminate eggs laid by workers.
