I guess they decided not to misquote Michael this time.

Well that contradicts my bit, except, for the treatment. 5 out of 7 of my loss came from treated hives. the other 2 was cleaned out by robber bees and wax moths set in. 2 out of 10 or 12 is about what I loose  every year. "Also" My losses came  from aged queens, 3 yrs. and older. "Also" I have not entroduced any new stock in a while. Treatment and worn out genes for those who don't migrate. For those who do, too much stress. Thats my 2 cents.
Mine do not get moved.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

I agree MB has a great deal of knowledge keeping bees but he is not the only knowledgeable beekeeper out there.

It seems to make sense that they would quote the Lusbys since it appears they were one of the first pioneers in small cell.

"Lusby and her late husband, Ed, also developed over a period of time a smaller cell comb diameter that produced healthier hives, a reduction in the number of mites and diseases and optimum honey production."

Here is a site with links to articles from or about the Lusbys regarding beekeeping.
