Hi all sorry for the late reply i had a procedure n my eyes yesterday and could not even see so am only reading this now ,bee north thankyou that is an amazing gesture and of course i would compensate you for your time and postage . i will do an inspection this afternoon as just like murphys law everything has come at once and i have another job that has to be done for someone today .
I am really hopeing that i will see uncapped larvae when i do the inspection at least that will confirm i have a queen i will be taking photos of every frame that i inspect and of the hive before i start .I emailed a chap in nsw and was told a queen would not be available until at least january as they are in high demand at present ,what annoys me is that the breeder clearly states on the paperwork 3/4 frames of bees A NEW SEASON QUEEN and frames of honey , how can he supply a new season queen when they wont be available to breeders or anyone here until october from a local queen breeder ?.
I should have gone to a bloke 2 km away who catches swarms he has been doing bee keeping for 46 years and would have been assured of a queen as i watched him remove a swarm from a friends cocos palm last sunday no suit nothing just cut off the branch layed it on the hive and the bees walked in amazing to watch .
Keep an eye on this post as ill let you know what i find and post some photos as well i have fingers and toes crossed i find that i have a queen and it was just my eyesight that didnt see the eggs .

> Your perception of far left and my perception are light years apart :rolleyes:

I perceive that IF you were an American, Which you are not. You would be of the Democratic (now seeming to be far left), persuasion by your post here. You might consider what Representative Van Drew, (former democrat, now Republican), had to say about his reasons for leaving the Democratic Party, just a few months ago by the way. Basically some of the same reasons so many in the once "solid south" have done the same.


"America was founded by statesmen who were guided by strong moral and political principles. These principles have allowed this nation to flourish and continually improve itself.

Often this has been a painful process, one that has been frequently stained by the blood and tears of the generations that have preceded us. Today, these fundamental principles are being attacked by zealous partisans who want to attack the moral and political foundations of our society and start completely anew.

This is our chance to stand up for America.

My decision to leave the Democratic Party was one that was not entered into lightly. The pressure of party bosses, activists, and even my colleagues, was great, but the Democrat Party has changed. It is no longer the party that my grandparents and I grew up admiring.

It is not the party that once allowed for and encouraged free thought and robust debate. Now, it is a mob that drives policy decisions with the goal of starting over with a new system of governance.

I was always told that Republicans would marginalize me, push me aside and treat me like dirt. This could not be further from the truth. I have been welcomed with open arms, and even when I have disagreed on some issues, my views have been respected. 

The picture of Republicans that is painted by Democrats and their allies in the media is mostly false; in fact, many of my former colleagues firmly believe the Republican Party is the sole cause of many societal ills.


It is this unjustified logic that allows them to treat their colleagues, their constituents and their fellow citizens with disdain and call them deplorable, or worse. We must work in concert to keep America unified and push back against that ignorance.

We cannot stand by and idly watch; we must be actively involved in the fight for this nation.

I have never been driven by partisan politics, only a desire to better the lives of my constituents.

America is under immense pressure to turn its back on the things that have made it exceptional. Make no mistake, many proposals put forth by the House majority in this Congress, while cloaked in the language of good intentions, are not governed by truth and are communistic in nature.

Many continue to run away from America. I cannot - I must run toward America. I will fight for my district, my state, and my nation.

Winston Churchill once stated-" that democracy is the worst form of government except for all those other forms that have been tried." America is not perfect, but it is better than every alternative.

I will always be focused on supporting proposals that keep America strong and prosperous. We must continue to provide our society with the opportunities on which our past, present and future generations have and will continue to thrive."
Because you like chapter and verse;

"America was founded by statesmen who were guided by strong moral and political principles. These principles have allowed this nation to flourish and continually improve itself.

I just wonder who sends/mails you this, I just don't believe you think this up yourselves !Like a lot of your posts they have the co-operate ring to them. Maybe Trump is closer than we think? But then again.........going off the 'debate' I don't think there is much to worry about :wink: Especially when it comes to Hookers and misogynous conversations " anyone want to play with her pussey" :embarassed:......but par for the course if the debate was anything to go by!

DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Re: Dead brood in front of hive after inspection
« Last post by TheHoneyPump on September 30, 2020, 07:55:36 pm »
Often, due to PMS, piles of dead brood, mid maturity pupae can be pulled and tossed.  Timing tends to coincide with the 2 to 3 week brood cycle.  If you have not checked the varroa mite level in the hive, it is strongly suggested you do so. 
From the description and the vague picture, from here it looks like the hive is crashing.  Soon there will be few bees in the hive at all. 
Imho

Hope that helps!

So I decided to roll the dice and see if I could get a Queen back mated. I destroyed two runty looking cells. Looks like I made right call. Got eggs and some young  larvae floating. I had a good feeling about it. I saw them bringing in pollen Sunday. And when I opened it up they were nice and quite.

>I was referring to were a few old ladies in a UK TV programme about some delusional 70+ old biddies


Cider I have not heard the term (old biddies) since hearing it from my grandaddy, who born in the early 1900s, (old biddies). Adding I heard that term recited by him more than once. I suppose that is an old english saying? If so it just goes to show how deep my roots may run. I will admit, I am pleased to know my roots go back to Great Britain, namely Scotland, even though generations removed. I suppose I still view you English and Australians as my far removed cousins.
Now don't become too geddy, cheery, or sunny, over this,  I still do not agree with your far left political leanings (at least that is the perception I have found of your views here at the coffeehouse) far left?
Your perception of far left and my perception are light years apart :rolleyes:

Saw the so called debate last night and have seen better debates in a school playground. God help the American people.
