40 plus 19 that I maintain for clients.
Out of boredom I tapped on the members tab at the top of the page to find that there appear to be a lot of Robots very interested in beekeeping, are we going to be made redundant in a brave new world or are they purely mining information?
Isn't technology wonderful? 😄

Yes interesting, you can see that certain robots “look” at all equipment related threads and a little scarily, those related to selling honey from the roadside.
Loads of guests too!

I've also looked at this.. I could do with a robot to give me a hand..i don't think I've enough children.

This forum is being watched more, and being moderated to an inch of its life.. Let alone more people being banned..
Where has Speybee gone fiat500fiat?
Neo nics.. Banned because??

Can I be banned so my wife can have a repeave from me coming on here, when I should be doing house choirs.

Too many - but not nearly enough

Always been the case - the typical follow the list beekeepers who don't think just follows lists and blindly tick boxes
'OooH, it's May - time to shook swarm'
Why?
'Because it's May!!'
'Oooh it's October - time to ventilate'
why?
'Because damp kills bees not cold'
Explain
' err.................................'

Really?
Care to explain to everyone how you've come to this conclusion?
On the original theme....
Morning Jenks,
Looks like there’s robots checking out your underfloor entrance design. I reckon someone will be patenting it soon and we’ll then have the opportunity to buy from Thrones at a very special price😩

Don't worry - it's been open access for years Thrones (who in all fairness at least had the courtesy to tell me they'd used the design) sell it as an option on their Adapta floor, and at least another two manufacturers (who didn't even bother) are selling it.
It's a concept rather than an 'invention' and based on a variety of underfloor entrances (Dartington, Kewl, heather floor to name but a few)
I just made easy to follow plans for its construction and shared them with everyone because I'm like that - what my grandfather used to call soft, or daft - depending on how many 'embers' he'd knocked back from his bed time whisky bottle 😁

The reason we do that is so that we both know what’s going on there’s nothing sinister or conspiratorial in it

I think you have the wrong forum - Mark has said on more than one occasion that this forum was set up as an alternative to the BBKA one
