Home swarm 4-11-11
« on: April 24, 2011, 12:11:22 PM »
Was building some screened bottom boards this morning so I could make a split on a very strong hive that I knew was going to swarm. After sawing and thinking for a while I decided to take a break and walk out to the bees, and well, they had already swarmed!! Settled in the old gum tree that is behind my home hives.

Nice.  Wish my swarm had stayed home but it was not to be.

It looks like you've been swarmed with swarms lately...good job!

"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."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907
