    Quick Question...

    Mid winter... We have bees on a farm and some at the house. We have lost six on the farm and none at home. It is much more protected at the house.

    Is there any reason why I can't move the bees...

    Pinch and re queen?

    I have a queen that has failed. Can I pinch her and re queen (in cage) all at the same visit or do I have to wait a day?

    I have a canon 60D. The lens I used for those shots was a Canon 28mm to 135mm macro/zoom. True, you could never do that with film. That would cost a fortune!
