Could this be indicative of a problem???
« on: October 16, 2010, 06:47:23 AM »
I think I may have a problem... :needhelp: I just woke up from a dream about a removal featuring a large external colony, and I'm too excited to go back to sleep.  The problem is not the lack of sleep, though.  I go through everyday life without enough sleep.  The problem is, I won't have a chance to possibly realize that dream until spring.... :'( :'( :'(

It's called "Bee Fever".  It has been known about for centuries and has gone by that name at least since the mid 1800's.  It is incurable.

"...As soon as I began to read this book, I contracted what is known as the "bee-fever," which took so strong a hold of me that I was not satisfied till I had borrowed and read Langstroth's book, and purchased Quinby's work, besides subscribing for the "American Bee Journal." --G.M. Doolittle, Scientific Queen Rearing

You need to quit sleeping with all those bee supply catalogs under your pillow.

Bee fever? In 6 months I can add pollen pattys to start spring build up. Our growing season stopped 2 weeks ago. Come on spring.  Tony

JP... you're lucky I don't have any vacation time left, otherwise I might just have to come down there and wrestle some of them away from you.  LOL :-D
