...a puff of dust turns into a small tornado as it scurries across the deserted dirt street...a tumbleweed bounces through town on it's victory ride....the door on the old stable squeaks as the wind blows it back and forth for the 1,003,493 time, a crow caws from the distance, a newspaper from 1872 flutters across the old corral, the watering trough is busted and dry, and the town's old "welcome" sign is on the ground having fallen years ago....
If this place ain't a ghost town I don't know what is!!! At least dean0 had a recent post...short thread, but at least some activity. Anyhow...
When you're doing a cut out and your cutting the comb to fit in the frame, how does the colony respond to cutting through the brood comb? I mean, there's bound to be injured/killed brood.
Do the bees clean these larvae out and simply go to repairing things?
Does injuring the brood cause the bees to get more distrubed/angry?
Do you attempt to follow a line between two rows of cells or do you figure that would kill two rows so you cut down the middle of a row and sacrifice only a single row?
Yelp, it's kinda slow around here. :)
