TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

beekeeping 101


What i've understood of beekeeping so far, the difference between just having wild beehives that one raids at night (while they sleep) and keeping bees is to stimulate the production of honey through:
- giving sugar water/cheap honey early in the year so more bees are born earlier
- stopping swarming [taking away new queens; more bees to one hive]
- promoting new queens [for production of royal jelly]
- diminish size of bees at end of season so they don't eat so much (honey)
- feed in winter so they don't starve because you took their honey away [leaving enough honey so they're not malnourished].

Getting rid of evolving queens and harvesting honey necessitates opening the hive regularly. That's basically what beekeeping's all about [besides giving the honey water, but that's hardly a craft].

]Guinea fowl will eat bees if they're allowed near a hive. I wonder if they can be used to control bee numbers. At the end of the year [/honey season] the bee numbers have to go down drastically or they start consuming honey.
The flesh of Guinea fowl that have fed on first rate bees should be healthy enough... Scobies will likely do a similar job of eating bees. When you don't want them eating bees keep them away from the hives. If you do want them to, they'll pick the bees right out of the air as they enter and leave the hive and gobble them up in no time.

]Different types of honey bees
From the above list, it would seem that the Carniolan are a good idea (though one must keep a good eye out for swarming [which is always a part of beekeeping anyway]).

Carnica

Italians, Germans, Russians, Buckfasts

hot hives


YouTube: [sign in to see URL] DmmtjFgdqz8 Requeening a vicious hive [cut & past and remove the space because the address won't allow a link]
- screens between supers to locate the queen
- after a few days come and take the super with the queen
- take it a couple of dozen meters away
- allow bees to return to the rest of the hive
- search the super for the queen
- remove queen and any queen brood
- come back later and remove emergency queen cells
- put in brood from a peaceful hive
