I'm an urban topbar beekeeper in Albuquerque, NM. I manage hives in backyards and small organic farms within city limits. These hives are probably pollinating your veggie patches right now. Visit my website at: http://brownsdowntownbees.com/
USA will be ruled by Ethiopia from here on out
I just moved the new ruling class from Ethiopia to USA today. USA's queen magically disappeared about a 10 days ago and USA never started making queen cells to replace her. Ethiopia's numbers were always low, so they wouldn't have survived the long, cold winter. I decided to split up Ethiopia. Japan took the workers and honey stores and greedy USA took the queen cells and 4 combs of nurse bees. Crossing my fingers this works.
