WANTED Queen Bee capable of starting a colony to produce honey. Looking for one male bee as well so they can make love and have honey making babies. LOOKING FOR AMERICAN BEES ONLY, DO NOT TRY TO SELL ME SOME AFRICAN BEE. Honey will be used only to make mead and not for anything weird. Mead will be called Double D's Mead. Not looking to spend a ton so it's OK if the queen is the runt of the litter. I know how to sex bees so no scammers please.



ok, how many things can you find wrong with this ad ?  :-D

I think somebody is just a little too impressed with mead.  :roll:

And it reads as if they soaked a certain green leafed plant in their mead as well.

A few years ago on another forum there was a gentleman who claimed to be an experience queen breeder selling virgin queens.  He was advertising that he included a few drones in the queens entourage.  I responded and asked why.  He said to insure she got mated.  I could not think of a respectful response so I bit my tongue...

Someone should put this guy in touch with that guy...

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
