What is the best way to collect propolis?  Is there a cheap way to drive the bees nuts and get them to collect tons of propolis? Yes I want to collect tons of it!  How much can be collected by one hive on a good year?

Nylon window screen on top of the hive (undr the cover(s) of course). Once the bees fill it you can freeze it the flex it to crack the propolis off. How much depends on lots of variables.

"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."
