They succeeded because they're bees and they've been succeeding for millions of years. Do you think it's possible that the bees know a good living space when they find one?  rolleyes

Not my hive guys,  it belongs to Dan Caldwell.

But rumor has it he made a killing on the outrageous mark-up for "wild honey" from the organic-ites... tongue

Trying to think like a bee colony now Wink being human, it ain't easy, but after so many millions of years I do believe they know best (better than me anyway) and will seek out a hollowed out tree if given the choice, so for my own bees that's good enough incentive NOT to put anything on the "inside" that bees wouldn't have put there themselves, but that's just me.

Thomas,

I had dinner with Michael Palmer last night before he gave a talk at a local bee club.    I got a new saying from him, and I immediately thought of you.

"Bees make better beekeepers than beekeepers make bees"

That's it Robo, Its as close as it comes anyway.  Its almost like you're in my head.  You'll have to thank MP for those words and have him spread that message on all of his advise columns Smiley  I'm hanging it up in my bee corner.
