    That's great.
    Hard work but bee keepers get to suss out some great hunting spots. So there is an upside

    I had a lot to do with the bee industry for a while and might have even met you BeeMan.

    I facilitated the creation of the Varroa buffer zone across the NI for MAF.

    .. Jeez @Tahr I been looking for you for 17 years. I voted to eradicate all bees North of Te Puke. You owe me $510,000, that's just for control products, I wont include vehicle running costs or wages, only want to hurt you not kill you. Time has taken its toll on me, I have grey hair, need glasses and can't run as fast as I used to, I have also become more accepting, and probably learn to forgive you someday. You could most likely speed the process up by recommending a good Chamois block for me.

    I went into hiding soon after and took on the Tahr non-de-plume. This is sort of my coming out I'm 70 now so maybe its time for you to let it go so I can resume my full identity again and enjoy my last few years without living in fear

    p.s. I get my chamois from the Warehouse.

    @ Tahr, I think the South Island Chamois look better on the wall than a warehouse model.

    @BeeMan what is the low down on the over priced healthy honey at supermarkets, health shops and souvenir shops?
    Mate has a hobby hive in Tauranga. His honey always tastes the best

    What’s with the sleeves rolled up?

    Yep @sako75 you probably find that all the over priced healthy honey has been fine pressure filtered and heat treated or pasteurised to remove or kill any pollen particles. They are super healthy,hahaha ur only paying for healthy. Marketing bullshit. The healthiest tastiest honey is from your mate or me. Sleeves up and work in shorts and jandles some days, bloody hot in the monkey suit, when the honey flow is on the bees are quiet and gentle as lambs as long as you don't kick them or swear at them.

Also I breed Italian bees for there quiet temperament. Probably would not loose more than a couple dozen bees a move. 4,320,000 a truck load.
    Shit don't crash anyone attending the will not be impressed with your 4320,000 little buddy's try to help you out

    Beeware folks, I think Beeman is just a little bit crazy. We were having a cup of tea at his place and he says lets go get some pollen. So off we go and start stealing pollen from some of his hives. No suits , no protection of any sort. And I am fare crapping myself, while he is catching bees by the wings to show me. He did mention a couple of times that I looked nervous too. Fascinating afternoon really though.
    If things get too serious Beeman, I could look after your boat for you.
