Young bees
« on: November 03, 2010, 04:32:58 PM »
Hi, Question,In the fall -winter do the young bees kick the old bees out at starting of cold weather ?

 :piano:
Acts2:37: Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39: For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
40: And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation

The older bees will add warmth for some time before they die and may be needed to defend the hive if the weather gets warm.

I was just wondering if they kick the old bees out because I go all summer long and see very few dead bees in front of the hive,then all of a sudden in the beginning of winter I see alot.

Sounds like robbing to me...can you ba more specific?

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
