Rust, no offence taken whatsover!!! But thank you for the apology, divine.
I remember many times when I was working with the bees, and it was pretty warm outside, I would get rather short-breathed, because of the hard work. I would be looking at a frame and indeed, I would blow my breath on them, probably pretty hard. Each time that happened, I definitely noticed a "buzz" among the bees, never actually really noticed if it was an annoyed reaction, but I know that I heard them in disagreement. I would always make sure I moved my face a little further from the comb and did not breath on them again at that point in time. I saw no point in annoying them if that was indeed what it did. So I have no clue.
I can't wait for this spring and summer to employ many of the little "tricks of the trade" that I have picked up from so many wonderful contributors to knowledge through this forum. It will be another year of learn, learn, learn and with all this, much better health for my bees and lesss work for me. Can't wait for summer....the winter solstace is getting closer by the day...LOL.. I told you you would get sick of me talking about the end of the short days, the days getting longer a couple of minutes a day, until it can get no longer and then begins the flight down to the shorter days on the summer solstace. Yeah!!!! spring does come. Great day. Cindi
