    Come and get it.:D

    Calling Arnie on Tuesday. Let him get stung.

    Still haven't seen these type of bees before. From a distance (They are 15 feet up). I thought they were ants or something. After taking a picture and zooming to 200mm I saw their red asses.....:(

    Surely we have an apiarist amongst iPad Forum members who can advise on what is the best way forward. We seem to have experts here on almost every other topic....
