Hi Folks,

We?ve been camped up on a remote beach for the last few days with no phone connection. Took us about half an hour driving down a rough track to get to the location. It was a lovely spot to camp next to the beach. Was lucky enough to see a large shark swimming close to shore on dusk and also a few turtles. We are now in Exmouth on the top of North West Cape. Quite a tourist based town with plenty to do and see. Will post a few pics when we can.
I find a few curse words said under my breath seams to help with the pain. The words should be loud enough for all sister to hear. Doesn?t solve the problem but it makes me feel better.
 :grin: :grin:

Did y'all happen to check these drone larva or pupa for signs of mites?

I have found the best remedy in my situation is being stung often. Talking Honey Bees not Bumble Bees lol. When I first began beekeeping, I had a swelling problem. I think it was Beemaster2 and another member Vikingcnp, who told me of using Cortisone cream and Benadryl cream combination along with Zantac and a Benadryl.
That helped... Since Zantac has changed their ingredients, I do not know it the effective ingredient for the purpose we are discussing is still present...

However what about moving a hive to the other side of a yard in winter, when the bees are inside for a week of bad weather? Would that trigger reorientation?
And what about putting a nuc through a paper combine? Would they reorient by the time they chewed through and exited the hive, or would the nuc bees go back to their original place in the yard?

Bob in my location the bees might not leave the hive for a month or so at a time in the Winter months due to 'cold'. I think your question is a good question considering location which Winter may make that difference you seek?? I would not be scared to try it if I knew the weather would hold them in for as much as a month at a time. After such a long time they would 'probably' reorientate anyway when they did come out for a cleansing flight?  Now, this is only speculation on my part as I have not moved hives any distance in Cold winter weather.. Plus Im not sure what the Weather is like in your location.
I know that Jurassic and Beemaster2 are in warmer climates than am I, and I would readily agree with their replies 'if' my location/climate was similar to theirs.. To be clear, I am not disagreeing now, just speculating according to my location what the results may be...

HUMOR IS A FUNNY THING / How Children perceive their grandparents.

How Children perceive their grandparents.
1. I was in the bathroom, putting on my makeup, under the watchful eyes of my young granddaughter, as I'd done many times before. After I applied my lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye....
2.  My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 68.  My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"
3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice,  "Who was THAT?"
4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods."  The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"
5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied.
6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story.
"What's it about?" he asked.
"I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."
7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I really think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself!"
8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."
9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised "Mine says I'm 4 to 6."  (WOW!  I really like this one -- it says I'm only '38'!)
10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said. "How do you make babies?"  "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."
11. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked.  "Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child."
12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties.
"They use him to keep crowds back," said one child.
"No," said another. "He's just for good luck."
A third child brought the argument to a close. ?They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants."
13. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. "Oh," he said, "she lives at the airport, and whenever we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we're done having her visit, we take her back to the airport."
14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him!
15. My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over, you hear gas leaks and they blame their dog.
