You don't seem to want to accept that bees are kept in very different geographic areas than yours.
Believe it or not there are people in this world that have kept bees other than you.
Oh dear. Of course not. Because I do not undestand about about geography either. I have studied it at university only 5 years.
Secret is that in USA, from Alaska to Florida you there in USA keep hives at same way.
Like University of Fairbanks says: most economican way to over winter bees is kill them in autumn and buy new in spring".
I have tried to say that good heavens, try to keep hives different ways
But it have seen that I attack on "we in USA" barrier
i knew we'd come to your experience. let me finish for you. you've been keeping bees for 51 years.
well, when i was in high school and college i worked for the apiaries studies department at a large university in the SEC. the difference is i don't feel the need to run my mouth about it and look down on everyone. i started keeping bees in 1980, i took a break a couple of times but all in all i've managed to keep a few hives alive.
again, alaska and florida are nothing alike and i don't keep bees in either state. how much experience do you have keeping bees in the U S?
what this all comes down to is you are simply a rude and disrespectful individual that hides behind a language barrier.
a few posts up you tell the new beekeepers not come to the forum with a question every time something happens in the hive. who made you a moderator? that's part of what this forum is for.
i don't see anyone else on this forum from any country that treats people the way you do. you wouldn't last long where i'm from with your attitude.
