    In general women baby their bees and are probably the best at keeping them alive.
    I know at least three such women.
    They cast a ton of swarms each and sort of do what I do only without special equipment.
    They catch it late then recover.
    I'm in the hives checking and split before the women do. I email them when I see my first queen cell and the word goes out. Big club.

    You need to get them to post their pics up and you can do one of those "Paul polls"....
    we can vote and pick the " Queen Bee"...

    Bees and hunting have opened doors for me.
    Just now I got a call from the police.
    My buddy wanted some honey.
    He is a detective. Others are beat cops that watch my bees. They sit in the driveway to catch bad guys. Cool? Yes.

    Another mannnlake delivery today, 100 medium wedge top split bottom frames. I had on order 250 sheets of foundation that they wrote on the ticket out of stock. Called them up, they don’t even have any on order, told me to order somewhere else.
    Dadant has it in stock. Order placed
