    I'm sooo.. disappointed. I thought you were the expert. :p You know the old saying, 'Ask 5 beekeepers, get 6 different answers".

    Seriously, thanks for the link.

    I thought it was ask 10 different beekeepers get 12 different answers. Actually, I've already heard about 4 different variations of that quote..........LOL!!!
    Obviously they can't even agree about the saying about themselves!
    Thanks for the link!

    No I'm no expert, I look up the answers to many of my questions in my A I Root ABC XYZ of bee keeping book. I couldn't find the answer to my latest question but did remember Zach.
    I found 5 swarm cells in one of my colonies so I want to bring the nuc I placed them in home so I can watch and possiable hear the new queen piping before she emerges. I just don't know how fragile the queen larva in those cells are.

    Ask 12 bee keepers the same questinon and get 2 times or more answers as they keep changing their minds. Changeing minds are a good thing. Other wise we would still think the world was flat and not live in North America.
