Finski, as CapnChkn posted you tend to fly off the handle if someone questions you.
I have tried to avoid to say that questions are out of mind. One fool may ask more than 10 wise can answer.
It is no doubt that you have a ton of knowledge about bees to offer us but what you are delivering is hard to decipher.
Like you, you have used all your energy to try piss on me. You are not interested how things really are. You will never succeed.
If you have lack of basic knowledge or you have your own fixed ideas, it is impossible to tell how things are.
I have just believed that you have just teased me with your stupid claims. British guys like to play that game. They even play their stupid games with diseases and after that discussion is mere mesh.
As I have said many times, all my knowledge is written in American universities with your mother lanquage. Don't care about my accent. Problem is that you invent yout own statement and do not bother to read the information.
Read and understand is different questions. You may read it in 10 minutes but it takes year or more to undertand the idea in practical level.
Then some one say that "cold does not kill but moisture kills". It is same as "horse does not kill but cars kill". Of cousre cold kills, but not perhaps in Texas.
The British beekeeprs are same. They do not understand the insutlation and they invent all kind of expalantions which are not from this world. It is what I say to them.
Like that "first years insulator" said: insulation adds moisture. - It is just controwise.
Guyes, back to school and make your home works.
Internet has 95% wrong information about bees. Mostly is it mere social mouth grinding.
I must say that insulation and heat issues are difficult issues in adulta level.
When the first energy crissi was 1975, we started to insulate our houses, stop ventilation, save energy and what ever.
....And what happened:
* people become seriously sick
* houses and workplaces got mould and part of people got huge allergy.
* many buildings were closed and living and working was forbidden
* roof and walls let rain water come into the house
* condensation water ruined many parts in houses
House wall structure
- outer board cover against water
- ventilating air gap (insulation and water cover do not touch each other)
- wind protection layer
- insulation (soft, much air)
- moisture barrier (inside moisture does not go inside the wall.
- inner surface cover ( nice to look, paint and what ever)
- wooden skeleton to fix layershttp://www.finnfoam.fi/index.php?action-article-getImage&article-imageId=2514
Simple, but development has taken 30 years...and some never learn in their DIY
