Avoid the hype. Do not buy bees from Australia.

It's not that Australia is bad ot their bees are bad. They are use to what exists in the US.
.au has no Varroa or Small Hive Beetles. They are not use to the pests we have here and get overwhelmed very quickly.

What happens is apiaries buy them for the Almond fields and then sell them to others. They don't do well in the cold winters either. Try to stick with local stock.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

That is what I was waiting for. So how does this imply there is something wrong with Oklahoma? Could just be that part of Texas........ Think about it.

I think what Jerrys' trying to say is...What he means is..(I'm trying to help you Jerry)...he heee....Is that the people from Rifle Range Rd.(10 miles from the Red River)  are a  peculiar sort..Yeh,...All 5 of us!!..Its what that country life has done to us!..With a rifle range, helicopter pads from the cold war, and one of the biggest natural gas lines under our feet waiting to blow any time, we've developed a strange sense of humor! We laff harder than most because if we didnt we'd have to move back to the city!
 Hey Jer,...I luvya man!!
your friend,

I really should stop hi-jacking topics.

Who here has been to Wichita Falls? It is one of the worst laid out cities in Texas..... Possibly the nation..... There is even an unfinished freeway to the South of town. It has been that way for over twenty years I believe.

I think it is something in the water. Water that comes from Oklahoma  :-D

Yeah Jerr!!!
 Yeh theres a new hiway what just got finished! 2 weeks later they started tearing out the northbound lanes as the concrete job was below standard! Theres also parts of the hiway coming in from the south that appear to go up in the sky!!...ReALLY SCARY!!
 You're not making this up about this place being so screwed up to drive in! bin here almost 40 years and I still have to ask "What way Janelle?" or "Turn here Janelle?" or "What'd they shut this road down for??"
 I cant stand even going to Walmart! Too many decisions on which way to go to get there!!
