"eating over a hundred pounds of honey a year and being stung hundreds of times will keep him alive until he is a hundred, or more!"

Run over by a bus a fortnight after filming.

Yes there was a spirit of optimism around in those times.

Not surprising she had a Rolls - if she charged for every treatment and some people needed up to 7,000 stings p.a. to cure them

1 new Nuc and a swarm caught on the 10th July
Really interesting
I never knew how queens were bred
Is it still done the same way.
Will need to have a search, anyone know of good sites about queen rearing?

5...2 wooden National, 2 poly Nat & 1 poly nuc...bursting at the seams
I would love to able to see them, but my broadband connection is absolute rubbish and the film keeps buffering. :banghead:
I had this, and then someone suggested downloading 'atube catcher' ...some only load a few seconds, but other are fine...TRY IT!!
