I have to admit giving the old mailbox baseball thing a goit was so much fun at the time, but when i came to the next day felt so stink, never did it again so when my mailbox gets hit which is impossile at the moment, (its built into a stone wall) i'll probably swear and curse but think oh well that will teach me, Karma.

A few years back I was out for a run and went past a letterbox on the footpath. Little chuckle to myself but had a nagging feeling the letterbox looked familiar. Got home and sure enough, it was ours

This weekend I was examining a couple of frames that I am waiting to empty out, when I noticed something unusual - "Gah! whats that hole in the brood cap!" I thought, then "OMG theres another, and another!" Turns out it wasn't anything unusual after all - just something I had not seen yet. Thought I share for any other newbies who haven't seen this yet: [attachment=3246:name] [attachment=3250:name] So is this pale colouration normal for newly emerged bees? How long does it take them to darken to a normal colour range?

How long does it take them to darken to a normal colour range?[/quote] Ok, this is weird :D but watching bees hatch is one of my absolute favourite things to do, I could literally do it for hours! They are just so cute when they first come out, they look all retarded and wet, and if you look at their eyes they seem to almost be smaller and a bit covered by fuzz. They don't appear to be able to fly at this age either, and as they get older their eyes change slightly and they change colour. I guess this is how you could tell what role a bee has in a hive and guess its age. But unfortunately I don't know how long they take to colour up, but my guess is maybe 2 days. If you pick one up and watch it, mostly all they do is clean themselves. So I suppose when they unstick all their fuzz and eat a bit they colour up, almost like being anaemic.. You can eventually pretty much guess what's under most of your cappings with out opening them, but its always good to check until you know. Plus it's interesting, to see how they chew their way out :D and look at all the changes they go through bit by bit. Amazing little things.

Kill the hedgehog. They eat eggs and baby birds and I've even caught one in the henhouse chewing on the leg of one of my poor old chooks who preferred to sleep on the ground.
