    British Black Bee

    I would have thought that being precious about petty things like this is the reason that others can't take the subject seriously or with any respect. can you honestly say that any of your bees are of 'pure blood'? No, you can't, so local mongrel is as good and realistic a name as any and a bit...

    Poly usage

    where did I say there were only two? most of my time in Africa has been spent in rural areas where open fires are the only means of cooking, if what you say is true these spaces would be constantly under a cloud of woodsmoke. the only fires I saw there were small and only during the time a meal...

    Poly usage

    :iagree: what you'll also find out in Africa is that the cooking fires are a heck of a lot smaller than you'd think as even timber in many countries is at a premium so they are very economical in their cooking methods and of course they don't all have two cars in their drives, walk a heck of a...

    Jars prices on the rise

    It's how these pallet companies work, everything gets sent to the nearest hub, a whole large lorry takes a full load of 'groupage to the feeder site, they then distribute it to the final recipient, that lorry may have only travelled a few miles from it's depot and delivered other totally...

    BFA membership

    not so sure - many moons ago SWMBO decided to accompany me on an inspection to take some 'action' photographs, she got suited up and joined me at the hive, it's only when I closed up and looked down I noticed her stylish high heeled slingback sandals!! :icon_204-2:

    BFA membership

    Sounds a bit like the Institute of Civil Engineers, all I had to do was pay an annual subscription fee to receive a quarterly magazine and I could append MICE to my name, and I had barely done two terms at technical college at that time!

    Probably because of all the pulses they eat

    Oxalic acid vaporisation.

    If the shallows had been nadired correctly, the bees will have moved everything up in the autumn so they would be clear in the spring - before moving them up

    Mystery nibbler!

    You'll have to catch it first though

    and when you've finished with it, you can slice it up and add it to an omelette

    BFA membership

    Hmm, how do you make that out then? members can only object if they are aware of a substantive issue that the board should take into account when considering the application and are able and willing to provide factual evidence in support.

    BFA membership

    Yes and no - it used to be quite a bit more than that, but if you had nearing 40 you could apply for an associate membership, a sort of 'Bee smallholder' with the understanding that within a reasonable amount of time you would increase your holdings thus get your membership confirmed. Nowadays...
