Newly discovered gems for me:
Keep car windows shut.
While you have stewardship of an evil hive, plan an escape route and keep it well clear!!
Oversized long sleeve shirt under the suit.
Antihistamine tablets and witch hazel in the toolbox.
Queen-breeders phone number on speed dial.....
There are times, such as when a colony is known to be queenless or big colonies after hot weather turns overcast and cold and they are all confined to barracks when it is prudent to remember the inspection tips of that noted beekeeper Kenny Rogers viz:
1. You’ve got to know when to hold them
2. Know when to fold them
3. Know when to walk away
4. And know when to run.
