Maybe they should start an entomology department.

Why is it that managed hives have 40-60,000 bees, most natural hives are smaller than managed hives, but all of the natural hives in the news have between 100,000 and 1,000,000 bees?  :?

Because the media can't count.

Kinda like what they wanted to do with the 2000 census and estimate.  Works well with populations doesn't it! :evil:


But if the hives have enough room they can get quite large.  Instead of between inner and outer walls, they may set up in a room of an abandoned building... :-D
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
