I think I may have a problem... need help 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 grin
