    I’ve got the European bee – Apis Mellifua, which I think originated in Italy. I’m in England, where the British bee was killed off by the “Isle of Wight disease” in the 1920s. Monks here at Buckfast Abbey in Devon found an alternative.

    Want to naturally dissolve the chemicals that are causing the bees to die? Check out “chemtrails dissolved”. Orgone pipes get rid of chmetrails in 5 minutes, 40 mile radius. Aim the pipes at the fields and what happens?!?!

    See the power of orgone pipes. Go to the link called “Does Orgonite Eliminate Chemtrails?” While watching the vid try this – quick short stop/starts on the Play button. Do you see the “O waves” or “Sky Waves”. The camera catches them. good site is soisnessdotorg.

    This definitely works on African yellow honeybees (scutelata) but it causes chaos in African cape black bee( capensis) colonies so what type bees have you got?

    Thanks, that’s very interesting, though from my education and experience the queen takes 17 days to go through egg/larva/pupa stages to hatching ( the worker takes 21 days and drone 24). But interesting to hear this practice of using emergency queen cells as it means you can split hives when you want to, instead of relying on the swarming season. I might try it, thanks!

    In Africa we just split hives and kill the old queens because emergency queens are just as good as the normal ones and they are ready in about 15 days instead of the normal 19 or 20. The result is 2 good hives in about a month.

    Well ok I looked at this again and realised they’re just short of space and getting pissed off. So they’re ready for swarming. You could have given them more space and maybe they would have been happy.

    at 0:43, I see emergency queen cells, suggesting you have a hive with no queen. With respect, do you really know what you are doing?

    “Principals of Beekeeping”. The correct word you should be using is “Principles”. No disrespect, but I’m fed up of seeing bad use of English.

    unfortunately the more you get stung, the chance of developing an allergic reaction to the next sting increases.

    it tkes about a 150 stings to kill a grown man.
    however, it you have an allergent complex, one sting may kill you if you don,t seek med help at once. or are carring the prom meds.

    Should be PRINCIPLES not principals of beekeeping.
    Any suggestions about keeping Carniolans, as ours swarmed in April despite having a half empty brood box and lots of stores.

    >>”ok a honey bee stung my little the neck?”

    Nothing. N O T H I N G !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Beekeepers get stung occasionally. I’ve been stung many times. NOTHING will happen. Some people believe it’s actually good for you, UNLESS you are allergic. If he were allergic, you would know it already. Peace!

    Not everyone is allergic to bee venom. Those who are, are allergic to the components of a sting which may bring about a type 1 hypersensitivity response by the patients immune system. This will not occur unless s/he has been previously exposed ie stung before. Once you have been stung, I would suggest anti-histamines and also, cut an onion in half and place over the lesion – it contains an enzyme which happens to break down some of the venom.

    As long as he’s not allergic to bee venom, he should be all right. A little ice on the sting will relieve the pain.
