Omie, that was incredibly good reading! You have probably gained more wisdom on beekeeping, faster than anyone I know. I am glad you have chosen to share your experiences on the forum and mentor as well. :bow:

You got it, Perry. She is about the fastest learning and most thorough new beek I have ever met.

Omie, thank you again for your presence here.

Good job on being the mentor!! Makes you feel good don't it.

Most times all that is needed is to read the signs, do a little quite time thinking and the answer is plain.

how come the 'expert' didn't know it was merely a new hidden queen in there??...wandering off scratching his head over the imaginary laying workers...?
I don't claim to be an expert and I willingly deferr to Omie's vast knowledge (that is said in all sincerity). But, I would have made the same mistake--based on the unpleasant experience of having had hives with laying workers (definitely queenless), where I would find multiple eggs in some cells. :dash1:

This is huge for me. Many times I will encounter something and I am unsure of how to proceed. Often I will simply just walk a few feet away, take a few breathes and even verbalize (yes, out loud) what it is I am seeing and the possibilities that exist. By process of elimination I often come up with the plan I use.
Maybe that's why people think I'm different, they see me talking to myself. :lol:

"I just thought it was so great that I got a chance to put to actual use the new knowledge I got HERE just the other day ! I felt good being sure of what the 'problem' really was and being able to calm my poor friend down and avoid them installing yet a third doomed queen."

and i might add omie, to share your experience here so that others might learn from it. :grin:

about talking to one's self in examination of a bee problem, i do verbalize out loud, but usually at the bees who are not listening, (so i must 'listen'), but more like 'what the bee-jeebers is going on here' and 'what are you girls doing in here' :lol:

or what others might think when they see us doing a dance in the yard (upon discovering successful queening), yelling in sheer joy, 'a queen, a queen, i have a queen!!!! as if we were proclaiming the birth of a child.....:yahoo:

...what others might think when they see us doing a dance in the yard (upon discovering that a bee has found its way up our pant leg), a' whoopin' and a' hollerin'... :shock:"


omie, since the bees have dances, would we call that the whoopin' hollerin' dance? :lol:
