I finished mowing a hay field and saw a bunch of bumblers working , so I shot them.
:coolphotos: I'll bet there's plenty for them and the honey bees too.
Yes there are, and they arn't mine.I think they are wild[unkept]
you have 'your stock' branded?
Not only branded, but named....
Annie, brenda, cathy, debbie, eva, fannie, etc. etc. :thumbsup: :lol:
Ya, I'm having trouble with the ear tags.Maybe micro chips are the way to go.
Mine are bar coded.
I'm working on training mine to call their names as they enter and leave the hive
Either they are slow learners or I'm a bad teacher. :cry:
So far I've had no success. :lol:
Silly wabbit, bees got no ears. You have to teach them sign language.
First I'll have to shrink my fingers and that won't leave me any way to lift frames.
I put mine through basic training: roll call/PT formation at 0600, work call formation at 0800, etc. They get promotions and everything. Egg, larvae, pupae, nurse, housekeeper, guard, forager, that's what happens when a former U.S.Army NCO becomes a beekeeper. LOL
I take it for granted that you teach them not to shoot unless instructed. :lol:
I'm still training them on the fire on command thing.
The bumble bees were going nuts in our blue berry patch today.
Our blueberry bushes are being pollinated mostly by bumblebees too, even though they are only about 15 yards from my two big honeybee hives... lol!
