SHB how high fly
« on: April 24, 2011, 09:42:52 PM »
does anyone know how high in the air can SHB fly?   I have a screened pergola and could put my hive in there with a bee vent about 7 foot above the ground     i suppose they would just crawl up the gauze until they found the vent though       anyone have any ideas?

SHB are strong flyers and can fly great distances. I'm assuming they can fly quite high as well/

"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
