Bees Vacationing in Jamaica
« on: March 30, 2010, 12:49:53 PM »
Most recent addition to my newly developed apiary,here's a pic of what happened after i made a transfer to a new hive,tied the brood combs in the frames but seems her highness didn't really like the scent of this new home

I've chosen understanding over knowledge-since knowledge is all about knowing where to find facts and understanding is knowing how to manipulate knowledge...I've also chosen knowledge over beliefs!! We all need to..

did they leave?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Well not really,What happened is they hung out all day til evening i got impatient an tried smoking them in :oops: but ended up almost losing them- they swarmed in a neighboring tree which i had to climb an clip the limb then returned an shaked them in the hive-Today makes 2days since that happened and they're still there.
Next week i'll check in on them to see how well the repairs are coming along with the tied combs and all.
