      Good point, Dennis. In English we now call all that "travel fatigue". We too like keeping our hives stationary.

      Liz - You've got the bug! Pun totally intended. There is something about honeybees, isn't there - the beauty, the peacefulness - that just makes you want to have them around. Thanks for helping!

      Bees have magnetite in their intestinal tracts. Magnetite helps orient them (and us) with the earths Magnetic grid and allows for direction finding. 'However, with the commercial bee Keepers trucking the hives all over the country to orchards(My comment) and the increasing ambient cell phone radiation, the bees loose alignment with the Earths Magnetic grid, get disoriented and don't make it back to the hive.(Ty Bollinger-CANCER-Step Outside The Box).
      This is why I labored over an orchard, mason bee hive. More hardy and permanent. I will also consider a honeybee hive but it will stay 'on location' as well.

      I'm so delighted to support this project. I only regret that I can't pledge more! I am a once inspiring apiarist who is looking at my bee books again and thinking how much I want to keep bees.
