The nzffa site is v good.  Have no idea whether eggs were deposited, cos that box ended up on the fire heap fairly soon afterwards.  Maybe it thought the box, was a old diseased pine tree!  Those things that looked like barbs were pretty formidable looking, and I certainly was not game to smoke it or remove it with my hive tool.

We start as New Bees and then progress thru to Field bees.  @Grant is the beekeeper and as yet we don't have a Queen Bee.  

It is a points system based on how many posts a person does.

It is running in the background and only grant can change the scaling system.

 

Maybe Karen K would lie to become queen bee ?

What sort of beekeeping operation does not have a queen bee?

surely on this forum Frazz qualifies as Queen bee for multiple reasons. A long overdue recognition!

Is it the queen bee or the queen cell that is the issue?  Or is it the proverbial gender issue haha!  

 

 

No, I would suggest it is the proposed candidate, although as a breeder of superb queen bees, does seem appropriate.

Nope no need for any queen bees here reckon we all bring our own beekeeping experiences to the forum and all have something to contribute.

 

Although I reckon there’s a few blokes here that would qualify as particularly deserving queens. ?

Blimen Heck.  I am at 9235.  I am not going to become a queen.

It may be the fashionable thing now days,  But !!!!

Only way to avoid it would seem to become the 'strong silent' type - and the pigs will be flying.
