Come on, you couldn't find an annoying neighbor to catapult that baby on over too!

Good thinking! There will be more, I am sure.

upde on the infamous clay pot hive!! :evil:

they didnt want to move down so i took a look, no stores,very little brood, looked like goners!
did a mini cutout and placed them in the lowas box with a frame of honey.
took a look today and they had new capped brood, lots of larvae and loads of eggs!
they are now doing great. :-D

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

Hey, the lady I got them from said they had been in that pot since last April. It'll be interesting to see how they progress. Good luck and have fun with 'em.
