    Cross comb in a Warre

    I was about to say much the same but then I thought that's really a bit nasty and not answering the question. I couldn't think of anything else though. What a mess.

  6. With quite a few of my swarms which are often in bushes at ground level the Q has been in one of the very last handfuls from amongst the debris. So no I don't think you can necessarily assume you haven't got her. If there aren't enough bees to cover about two fd frames they're not worth going to any trouble. If you have drawn frames to put them on they'll spread out a bit and you should be able to see a Q if there is one. On plain foundation they'll clump up and you'd be lucky to see a Q.

    AFB Proposed Levy Increase

    And the current market conundrum won't help will it. And personally I think there's another tiny psycho/image thing that isn't helping, that is the name of the outfit. "The Management Agency National American Foul Brood Pest Management Plan" A mouthful like that doesn't bode well and this is one case where a consultant should have been employed to come up with something better...

    I think you have too much spare time sitting on your chuff waiting for the next tape machine hiccup.

    Some flax flowers. Individually they don't appear to vary much in colour but when in adjacent masses they're very different...

    Yes some are quite heavy, but overall I think it's a bit patchy
  15. I've very recently read right here a piece of what was presumably held to be spam as it's disapppeared that claimed a (named) southern beek has had an export consignment rejected for herbicide contamination. Anyone heard of this outside the forum ?
