The two most sophisticated programs in the use of insects were those of the Japanese in World War II with plague-infected fleas and cholera-coated flies and of the Americans during the Cold War with yellow fever–infected mosquitoes.

Thanks Greengage, Sorry for not replying sooner, I had logged out while I was waiting for James to get back to the other thread. Also other things going on that I needed head space for.

I may do a link on a bee flower thread, at the moment it is cold and overcast here so the bees are all quiet!

Bees flying today, it is too early to say how our bees have fared but still flying and collecting pollen so that's good.

I was up in Borris golf club recently. I noticed quite a large number of bees acting 'drunk' in the grass. Not flying, just falling around and going around in circles. Reaction to a spray maybe?

There you go Greengage, but I am guessing you knew about this already.

Yes mine were 98% pure with an Italian mix. Not everybody is happy with these results the politics in beekeeping is toxic at times. If you follow this on facebook you will get the picture. There are big egos and toes stepped on here with two jurisdictions to deal with nothing is going to happen. We will not be supplying Europe with bees. There will still be lots of imports coming our way. Interesting findings one of the doctors mentioned in the article was not too excited she being an entomologist, the other doctor is a botanist. I am only a Bee master way down the pecking order.
