Hard-working honey bee – an amazing creature


There are 7 species of a honey bee, with 44 subspecies They can survive in almost every climate Because honey bees have been domesticated to produce honey for human consumption, they are now found all over the world in different habitats. While honey bees can thrive in domesticated or natural environments, they generally prefer living in meadows, orchards, woodlands, gardens, and any other areas where there is an abundance of flowering plants.

What If You Were Stung By The Most Painful Bee?


Have you ever come upon a small bee or wasp
and it scared you out of your mind?! It might feel silly to be afraid of such a
small insect, however your instincts are right on track… Sometimes the smallest little bugs are some
of the most dangerous! And that can include the bees and wasps that
are in your backyard right now! When you hear buzzing coming from a nearby
tree, you might immediately take notice. We really love honey, but nobody likes a bee
sting. While a simple bee sting from a honeybee is
unlikely to cause much harm, some people are allergic to a specific chemical in the bee
venom. They can have severe reactions to bee venom
causing them to go into anaphylactic shock that causes swelling and difficulty breathing. Luckily a quick dose of epinephrine through
an EpiPen can quickly counteract the bee venom… But if the person can’t get that dose they
could possibly die. But there are bees and wasps that are dangerous
even to those without a bee venom allergy. First off there’s the hybrid honey bee called
the Africanized honey bee. These bees are an invasive species that take
over local honey bee hives. These bees are more aggressive than your average
honey bee. If they perceive a threat to their home, like
a human accidentally disturbing the hive, the bees go into hyper defensive mode. They can swarm a person in cloud up to 60
thousand bees strong, stinging the victim thousands of times. The stings from these thousands of bees can
cause tissues and body functions to breakdown almost immediately. People have been known to suffer cardiac arrest
and die almost instantly from these bee swarms! If you see a hive, stay clear, and notify
animal control to take care of it. But even those bees are no match for the Giant
Asian Hornet. These guys are up to 2 inches in length and
eat bees for breakfast, literally. They are carnivorous species of hornet and
contain a neurotoxin that shuts down their prey’s nervous system. They are also prone to hyper defensiveness. If a person gets stung by even one of these
Hornets, they can go into anaphylactic shock and die. The deadliest of all though, is the Vespa
luctuosa, a species of wasp found only in the Philippines. It has the most toxic venom of any bee or
wasp and only a couple insects in the whole world are known to be more toxic. A single bite from this little wasp is extremely
painful and can lead to convulsions, your skin turning blue, and even death. Luckily for us they rarely build their hives
around humans so unless you’re walking through the Filipino wilderness you’re not likely
to meet one. Whether you’re allergic to bees or not though,
be careful. Some of them might be more dangerous than
you think so it’s always best to keep your distance and not take any chances. Even if you get a honey craving and see a
hive – under no circumstances should you disturb them. Leave it to the pros and both you and the
bees will be much happier. Thanks for watching and don’t forget to

Beek Speak | John Gates – Bee health for beginner beekeepers


– So, when we talk about bee health, we talk bout a couple of things. One would be to diagnose and
deal with pests in the hive. The other is bee nutrition and
how that impacts bee health. Today I’m not gonna talk about how you manage things like American
foulbrood, or Varroa mites, or small hive beetle,
or anything like that. Those are wider topics, bigger topics, take more time to explain. I’m just going to talk about just the principles of bee health. (light, upbeat music) Hi, my name is John Gates, I worked for 26 years for
the Ministry of Agriculture in British Columbia,
Canada, and then retired and started up my own beekeeping business, bee breeding, pollination business. This past fall, I just sold that business, and now I’m just having fun
with a few hives of bees. (laughs) Today I’d like to talk about bee health, and the necessity of
keeping your bees healthy if you’re going to be
a successful beekeeper. We know that bees have
existed for millennia, and they’re very good at
keeping themselves healthy in the wild, but there are diseases and pests that bees can suffer from, and even in the wild
they suffer from them. In a beehive, it’s a bit
of an unnatural environment for the bees, and because
we’re manipulating the bees, even if we don’t do it very much, it is an unnatural stress on the bees. And as beekeepers, I think
we have our responsibility to look after our bees
and keep them healthy, rather than just relying on the bees to keep themselves healthy. The bees have great abilities to fight off diseases and pests, whether it’s physiological abilities, or whether it’s behavioural abilities. But there are times when
they can be overwhelmed with incoming pests and diseases, and that’s when we have to
know what to do about it. So, if you’re going to be
a successful beekeeper, you really must learn to
diagnose problems in the hive, and to deal with them. I’m not a believer in just
leaving your bees alone, having them in the hives
and leaving them alone, because there are times
when they need help. And even if you’re not
concerned, I hope you are, but even if you’re not concerned
about your bees suffering or dying off, some people
say, well, that’s nature. But the other thing you
must think about is that if your bees are suffering, quite often, that spreads to other beehives, whether they’re feral
beehives and colonies, or whether they’re other beekeeper’s bees. So, I think you have a responsibility to maintain bee health. So what can you do as a beekeeper
to maintain healthy bees? Well, first of all, you
should do a lot of reading. There’s a lot of information out there. You can get it off government websites, you can read textbooks, you
can go to bee club meetings and get pamphlets, there’s
lots of information out there. And the other thing I really
recommend new beekeepers is to seek out these groups of
beekeepers that have meetings. All around the world
there are bee clubs where beekeepers come together,
perhaps once a month, once every two months, and they discuss beekeeping topics, they’ll show videos, and they’ll just chat amongst
themselves about their hives, what’s happening in their hives. So, a great source of information and very good comradery, as well. By talking to people,
by reading, you can gain a lot of insight and
information about bee diseases. But I think, really, it’s essential to go into a beehive with an
accomplished beekeeper, whether it’s a commercial beekeeper, or a very good beekeeper
that just has a few hives, and open the hive, get
your hands in that hive, pull some frames out with the beekeeper. Because a beekeeper will
show you things that you won’t understand from reading books. And also, especially as
a first-time beekeeper, the first time you open
you hive on your own, you will just see a mass
of insects in there, crawling all over each other, all over the insides of the hive, and you’ll be bewildered about
what’s going on in there. It’s overwhelming, the
smell you get, the movement. And sometimes, of course,
you’re a little bit afraid of what’s going on in there, you’ve got all these stinging insects. So it’s really hard to
translate what you’ve learned from a book into what’s going
on in a hive to begin with. So that’s when it’s really good to be with an accomplished beekeeper. They’ll point out these things to you, they’ll show you the
bees cleaning the cells, they’ll show you the
bees grooming each other. If there’s a disease, they’ll show you the symptoms of the disease,
and then it’ll make sense. But it usually doesn’t make
sense when you read about it and open a beehive for the first time. My recommendation is
to do a lot of reading, and then go out with a good beekeeper, and more than once. Beekeepers are quite often
very proud of what they do, and they’re very happy to
bring a beginner into the fold. So there’s no lack of people out there that’ll show you what to do, and so take advantage of
that, it’s a real opportunity. The other thing I want to talk about as far as bee health goes, is nutrition, because unless your bees are well-fed, they’re not gonna be healthy. And we know that a lot
of diseases are sort of stimulated, or come on, when
the bees are poorly fed. There’s a stress on the bees, and things like nosema disease
is a stress-related disease. If the bees are poorly fed,
they don’t have enough food, they don’t have enough of
the right kind of food, they will come down with certain diseases. So nutrition is very important. You always wanna make
sure that the hives have three or four frames of honey
in the hive at all times, because then you know that they’re not gonna run out of honey. Pollen is something needed as well. So what you can do as
a beekeeper, of course, is just make sure you’re not taking more away from them than you should. But there are also times of the year when the bee populations are
growing very rapidly, they’re consuming a lot
of food to feed themselves and their young, then all
of a sudden there’s no food coming into the hive,
there’s a dearth period. Plants are not producing nectar, they’re not producing pollen. And there are times right in the middle of the beekeeping season
when your bees can starve. Because there’s nothing coming in, there’s a huge population of bees, a huge population of brood. And although you couldn’t
imagine bees starving in the middle of a summer
or a nice warm period when they can get out
and fly, they can starve. So just make sure you’re
watching their stores and they’ve got at least three or four good frames of honey
in there at all times. Now when we’re dealing
with northern beekeeping, we’re dealing with
something totally different than tropical-type beekeeping. With northern beekeeping,
there are periods of the year when the bees are confined to their hives. They can’t get out, it’s too cold. And even if they do go out,
there’s nothing for them, there’s no flowers blooming. So in the more severe cases,
the bees may be confined to their gives up to six
months with a few little flights out to defecate,
but other than that, they’re not getting any
food, there’s no nutrition. So the bees need enough
stored food in their hives. Where I keep bees, we
like to make sure there’s at least 50 pounds of stores in the hives for the beginning of winter. And then we’re pretty sure they’re not going to starve over winter. So to ensure that the
bees have that much food, there’s a couple of things you can do. You can save back honey from the season when the honey’s coming in. If you just have a few hives,
you can take nice frames of honey out of the hive and put
them in a household freezer, if you have a household freezer. The honey will stay in
perfect shape in a freezer, and then before you put it in the hive, you can pull it out, let it warm up a bit, and then put it in the hive. And you can do that in
the fall to make sure that there’s at least 50 or 60
pounds of honey in there. And that is equivalent to about one standard deep box of honey. So you can do that. And a lot of people will prefer to do that if they’ve just got a
small number of hives. The other thing you can do, is you can feed a sugar syrup solution. And you can either feed
cane sugar, white sugar, beat sugar, the white processed
table sugar that you see on the store shelves and that
you use yourselves sometimes, or high-fructose corn syrup is
another decent feed for bees. And I know a lot of people don’t like the idea of feeding bees sugar. And we know that it’s not
particularly good for us, especially if we eat a lot of sugar. But we have to remember that
bees are sugar-eating insects, that’s a big part of their feed. Honey is mostly sugar, and
it does contain sucrose, which is what the white sugar is. It also contains glucose and fructose, and other minor sugars, and
minerals, and things like that. So, honey is a more rounded food, but bees are sugar eaters,
and they do invert the sucrose that you feed them into
glucose and fructose. So they do change it. And it is a decent food for bees, and it’s a better alternative
than letting them starve, or letting them come down with diseases, or not thrive because they
don’t have enough feed. Even though you may not
like the idea of consuming sugar yourselves, remember,
they’re sugar eaters, and you wanna keep them alive. The other thing is pollen. Now in most cases, as
a small-time beekeeper, probably where you keep your bees, there’ll be a wide enough
diversity of pollen that it’ll keep your bees healthy. Bees require more than
one type of pollen because they don’t get all their
nutrition from one pollen. But in most situations,
the bees are picking up pollen from little
inconspicuous flowers that we don’t even notice in lawns, in the bush, and then there’s the trees,
and so many other things. One of the really interesting
things about beekeeping is sitting in front of a
hive and watching them bring in the different coloured
pollens on their legs, and then trying to trace that
back to where they’re working, to see what they’re actually bringing in. So, pollen is usually not a big problem for small-time beekeepers. But if you’re a commercial beekeeper, or if you happen to be a
small-time beekeeper living in amongst hundreds of acres
of one type of crop, then pollen could be an issue, because the bees are just going to be getting one type of pollen. And in that case, you can
feed pollen supplements to help with their nutrition. You can purchase pollen, but if you do, make sure it’s been irradiated because pollen can bring diseases
with it if you’re buying it from people with diseased hives. And that reminds me to tell you about purchasing honey for feeding bees. It’s something I never recommend because, also, there
are pathogens in honey from diseased hives that you’ll
then transfer to your bees. Certainly never buy
honey from a store shelf to feed your bees,
because you have no idea where that’s coming from. If you have a very good beekeeping friend, you know their hives are clean, then you’d be more
comfortable buying honey from them to feed to your bees. But generally I don’t
recommend buying honey for feeding your bees. And even if you do buy
honey to feed your bees, it’s a little difficult to feed. There’s more information
than I’m gonna give you today on how you feed honey. So, sugar syrup is
generally easy to deal with, easier to deal with. We wanna keep our bees healthy. If our bees are healthy, we feel good, because we’ve got a thriving colony that’s doing everything it
should, it’s very fascinating. If they’re unhealthy, of course,
it’s just a situation that will cause you despair, I
think, and it causes me despair when I look at an unhealthy colony. But also, if you’re
hoping to get some honey from a hive, or hoping
to make some money by keeping bees, then of
course, you definitely gotta keep your bees healthy
so the hive will thrive and they can bring in honey crops, they an polliate for you,
they can produce pollen, and all these sorts of things. So it’s necessary to keep them healthy, it’s necessary to keep them well-fed. I always say that, if
you look after your bees, your bees will look after you. I guess that’s it.

Bee Movie Knockoffs | Quinton Reviews

Bee Movie Knockoffs | Quinton Reviews


Quintin: So I hate re-uploads, but this is one of them. While intended for November, this video was originally uploaded on December 1st, 2017, and immediately it became one of my most popular uploads. But before even clicking the publish button I realized that I had a copyright claim. Now what I should have done was taken the video down and changed the segment immediately, and I really decided that even if I wasn’t going to be able to make money off of it that I wanted to release the video as soon as possible. Despite this fact, I countered the claim and that came around to bite me in the ass, because the company officially filed a take down notice as of today. So I decided to just take down the video, change the segment, and then re-upload it. The positive is that, in this case, I now officially own this video, and this is honestly just what I should have done from day one. Thank you for your understanding and please enjoy. Jerry Seinfeld: Hello, and welcome once again to Bee Movie TV Juniors. In this episode, we discover counterfeits. Bootlegs. KNOCK-OFFS. Sounds like fun doesn’t it? Until you come home and find out; you’ve just spent twenty dollars for this! Roll it! Quinton: Hello, everyone and welcome to a special occasion that I like to call Knock-Off November. For those of you who have found my channel more recently, Knock-Off November is a special tradition that I started last year, where I dedicated the whole month of November (and occasionally some of December) to reviewing knock-off merchandise and movies. Things like this! See, it looks like a Transformers toy but it says something else. I’ve been holding on to this thing for months just to do this bit. And while we’re certainly crunched for time, I thought it would be fun to sit down and look at at least one knock-off product bee-fore we move on to December. And what better place to start than the biggest oddity to modern animation?
Yes, Bee Movie© The 2007 cult… *reconsiders life decisions* THING Bee Movie has always been one of those things that everyone knows about, but no one wants to talk about; like the slave labor that makes our clothing or the fact that we let Meghan Trainor have musical career. I never clearly remember a time during my childhood where I chose to watch Bee Movie, but I recall several instances where I would BEE spending time with my friends and it would just BEE playing in the background. No one knew who put it on- no one would even admit that they owned a copy of Bee Movie, and yet, there it was. I’m not sure anyone really cared about Bee Movie when it first came out, but it was so heavily advertised and promoted that it quickly BEE-came impossible for anyone to forget it either, so it sits in this weird part in the subconscious of our subculture where it’s known, but almost entirely for the perplexing circumstances of its own existence Bee Movie: “A movie about a bee that falls in love with a human, the same movie were that bee and that human decide to work together to sue humanity for selling honey, the same movie that has a finale where the bee and the human have to land a plane with the assistance of a hive of bees so that they can pollinate the planet” -IMD-BEE That. Bee. MOVIE. I’ve been informed that, while most adults are simply BEE-mused By the existence of the Jerry Seinfeld comedy vehicle, a lot of children are very into Bee Movie. Kids love finding odd things to be infatuated with, so in that way it makes total sense that they would find the universe of the film exciting and very unique. What might disappoint them is how little output there is with Bee Movie; no sequels, no spin-offs, nothing but one movie. Oh, and a game version, and a couple novelizations, and a ton of merchandise, which includes honey. There is Bee Movie honey. Bee Movie released their own honey. God is sitting in a recliner chair laughing at us every single day. In short, there’s really only ever been one Bee Movie story ever told, even if it’s been told several times over. And when you have plenty of little children wanting to see more of that world, you’re bound to get the very thing that we’ve come to talk about today- Knock-offs. Jerry Seinfeld’s Beesona/Barry B. Benson: This is stealing! A lot of stealing! Quinton: So in the past on this channel, we’ve discussed the infamous company “Video Brinquedo” who have made themselves a staple of the knock-off market nearly as large as Asylum themselves. Even if you’ve never seen one of their films, you’ve most likely seen one pop up in a search where it didn’t BEE-long. And that very thing is how they have built their entire legacy. Now, my first video in the Knock-Off November series was about a Video Brinquedo film, and it notoriously led to me receiving a copyright strike, which was very hard to get rid of. There’s obviously something quite ironic about a company whose main financial motivation is copying the intellectual property of other companies filing a takedown against a copyright creator using their clips within Fair Use. And out of protest for this, I have decided to never get the language of their native country correct. Some Spanish people busting in my house and tell me I can’t own my own video. I ain’t gonna respect their name. or- or the actual language that they speak. But it was still quite shocking to see that Video Brinquedo had not only made a knock-off of Bee Movie, but that it had landed on Amazon Prime. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, if you have Amazon Prime, you’re given free access to streaming this one movie, for free. So start your free trial now and you’ll get full access to this masterpiece. Or you can watch Curb Your Enthusiasm (recommended) it’s your choice… (Watch Little Bee- don’t listen to Quinton) (Creepy Bee Humming) She-Bee: Ugh, Bee-Nard Beh- BEE-NARD?! BEE-NARD! BEE NARD *Existential Crisis begins* I’m way over my fucking head… She-Bee: You shouldn’t be buzzing around in the flowers. You’re supposed to be a soldier someday. Quinton (Depressed Man): So this is our main character… Bee-nard (ew) Who is in trouble because he’s collecting pollen from flowers when he’s actually supposed to be training to be a soldier. You see, in the universe of “A Little Bee”, bee society is split into the following branches: the queen bee who bosses everyone around, Princesses- who train to be the new queen, and the Cooks- who gather nectar and then use it to cook honey. Now in reality, the actual social structure of the average bee hive is very different to this. Other than the queen, most fully functioning bees serve as workers with no unique categories. All worker bees are considered female in nature and the only male bees serve only to impregnate the queen. They’re often very crippled and actually die during the mating process and I’ve lost you, haven’t I? The point is that BEE-nard doesn’t want to BEE a soldier BEE-cause he wants to cook honey instead. His classmates ridicule him for this, as many of them are jealous at his position as a solider She-Bee 2: That’s absolutely right, Bee-auty. *Existential Crisis: Stage Two* Quinton (Depressed Man): Our leading lady is indeed named BEE-auty. And her motivation is that she wants to BEE a soldier, but is designated to always work in honey. BEE-cause of this she flies down to the military target range after regular training to give her own go at the course- in a scene animated so awkwardly that you probably wouldn’t believe that I haven’t edited it. *BEE-auty creepily giggles while faint music plays.* BEE-uaty: HeiiigHaAaAh This whole bit is so awkwardly put together and pasted that it starts to feel like I’m watching someone else play a Telltale game. Bee-auty: You don’t want to get me into any trouble. Misfits like us need to stick together. Quinton(Singing): BUM PDADADA BUMP BDA We’re a couple of- So Bee-nard blackmails Bee-auty- *coughing fit brought on by sheer levels of awfulness* *dies* So BEE-nard blackmails BEE-auty into helping him get into the hive’s kitchen so that he can make his own honey. The only obstacle in their way is the chef, who everyone seems to hate. The chef’s main crime is that he’s really bad at making honey, but seems to think that he’s really good at it- so everyone hates him. Basically he’s an allegory for the people that made this movie. But BEE-auty puts up with dealing with the cook so that she and Bee-nard can make their own honey, pushing aside the futures that have been selected for them by the hive to make their own choices. Bee-nard (Singing-in the loosest term possible-): It’s all up to me, what I want to BEE Quinton (Visibly Upset): Don’t sing! Bee-Auty (Singing): I’m a queen!! Others: So pretty! *Indistinguishable sounds implied to be singing* *slow, sad clapping* Quinton: But as Bee-nard and Bee-auty are finishing up their latest batch of honey, the hive is attacked by a human seeking to wipe it out. Two of the soldier bees find an opening in his bee suit, but This only causes the human to momentarily flee. In response to this, the queen declares war on humanity, and the pair have to split up to face certain death. *miserable attempt at a coherent song* Quinton: Well, that’s enough of that While eavesdropping on the humans, the princess discovers that their jobs are to collect honey, and that they’re planning to destroy this hive because the honey has been turning out so horrible. She confides this in the two main characters, and Bee-nard again plans to break ranks so that he can help make a good batch of honey. Bee Chef (doing a weird mix of Idubbbz and an abominable french accent): aNd mah honey has put the hive in jeopardy zHaT eeS tErRiBlE!!1!!11 There is only one thing I can, do to right this wrong. Jerry Seinfeld’s Beesona/Barry B. Benson: How about a suicide pact? Quinton: The humans approach the hive with a special gas that makes bees faint, which quickly makes mincemeat of the hives well-trained militia. But the main characters are ready to release the honey and save the day Bee-nard: We need to pour the honey now. Princess(?): It’s up to you, you’re the only one who can fly fast enough to open the valve and make the honey flow out. Quinton: Is he tho? Is BEE-ing fast one of his character traits? BEE-cause he didn’t mention that before. Oh, shit! I take it all back, BEE-nard’s the fUCKING FLASH. n i g h t y n i g h t Johnny Cash (Singing): And you could have it all my empire of dirt I will let you down I will make you hurt Quinton: That’s not honey. Human: This stuff is delicious! No,way we’re getting rid of this hive! Quinton: And so Bee-nard saves the day- but that isn’t the final act in our story for Bee-nard is arrested and taken to- noOOOOO Queen Bee: I hope that you are aware SON of the severity of the charges that have been brought against you. Your deposition is required. Quinton (Transformed into Jerry Sienfeld): What is with movies about bees and scenes of bees and courtrooms?! No one cares! After a 10 to 15 minute court scene, Bee-nard is acquitted and is declared the first bee soldier/chef causing much mayhem in the hive over what this will mean for the future. Random Bee #1 (Never seen them before): Do you think I could be a princess one day?! Random Bee #2 (Who is this?): Lol no. Random Bee #1: A princess who’s a soldier too? Random Bee #2: Bitch no Random Bee #1: What about a Super Chef Princess Soldier?! Random Bee #2: That’s a no from me Quinton: Look, even the characters in the movie know that this standard hasn’t suddenly shifted, the rules aren’t different, the society hasn’t been uplifted. All that’s happened is that one kid gets to pull a Mulan and break all the rules even though everyone else has to stick to them- and you know if you want to call that a change in society- good- go ahead and do it. But I don’t- I don’t really care. Princess (?): Look at that, I think we’re being watched. Quinton: Oh, that’s unsettling… Bee-auty: Your right! Gosh, who is it? Quinton: Hey, my name is Quinton- I get paid to watch bad movies, you’re in one of them. Bee-nard: Hey, I got it! tHiS is someone who’s following their heart wherever it takes them :)) Quinton: Follow m- YOU’RE the person who’s been making all these horrible choices! *attacks self* YOU STUPID SON-OF-A-BITCH! Next Movie. “Plan BEE” is the next animated feature in the discography of Bee Movie knock-offs. Notable for actually being released the same year as the original. You might then suspect that it’s a tiny bit rushed… *The voice of SATAN* HeYyY *unintelligible mess* *SCREAMS OF AGONY* *TORTURED BREATHING* It is no exaggeration to say that “Plan Bee” is the ugliest movie that I have ever seen. *a mangled mess of gross, weird slurping/burping? noises* *a sigh of relief as this “bee’s” soul relinquishes his body* H o N E y When you compare it to something like Rapsittie Street Kids, which had this equal level of incompetence, Rapsittie Street Kids was nowhere near as hard to look at. One of the most horrifying design choices made Is that in order to collect pollen these huge red straws just eject from their throats. They use this, not just to collect pollen, but they also vomit the pollen back up to make honey. I don’t know if this is more or less accurate than any other Bee movie’s interpretation of what this is like, but it’s definitely harder to watch. There is a “plot” to “Plan Bee”, but do you really need to know what it is? Would your life truly be negatively affected by not being told what happens in this “movie”? BEE-cause when I uploaded this video the first time I didn’t tell you what happened in the movie everyone threw a hissy fit! The “bees” in the movie are having a dilemma where they haven’t been able to grab as much pollen as they need to. Which apparently upsets the queen, who comes in screaming like a banshee Satan: “WOT’S THIIIIIIIIIIIIS” Monstrosity: “It’s, uh, Honey.” Satan: “I CAN SEE THAT!” Monstrosity: *weird gulp* Satan: “But theresss sooo little!!!” This queen, apparently has replaced a former queen off-screen, who we’ve not met yet, and she says that her first decree is that bees will no longer gather pollen by, slowly, going from one plant to the next, and that instead they will do it “her way”. Satan: “Stahp it! From now on…” “D r I l L & d R A i N” Bitch w h a t Quinton: Wait, is this like an environmental film? Monstrosity: “Ever hear of ‘Drill and Drain’?” Atrocity: “Yeah, it sounds like some nutty technique humans invented.” Quinton: Okay! This is an environmental film now! GOOD! Oh! Never mind, it’s a political movie. There’s this whole thing about how the old queen got replaced, and they’re trying to figure out why. Sure. The new “Queen” insists on having more and more honey and orders that the size of their hive be doubled in size to make more room. This leads to the main characters being informed that sleep privileges have been revoked and that the bees will now have to work 24/7. This entire time, a bee from another hive is trying to convince the main character to leave his hive to come to her’s instead. The “film” is set in Washington D.C., potentially because these backgrounds are very cheap. And the characters are constantly stopping to discuss the human history of America entirely to draw parallels to the politics being shown in the plot of the actual “movie”. Atrocity: So you come here- to the Lincoln Memorial- A monument dedicated to Abraham Lincoln the president who ended slavery. Desperate for nectar after they managed to destroy many of the plants in the DC area, the bees go to the only place that they haven’t checked yet. The studio where this film was made! *obnoxious laugh track, probably from a Seinfeld episode* Eventually, the main character “B” is banished, after failing to produce enough honey and finally meets his former queen. It’s here that he realizes the appointment of the new queen was actually a massive conspiracy. Which leads him to appeal to his original hives elders. The elders banished the original queen because they were served poisoned royal jelly, but the main character deduces that it was, in fact, the new queen who poisoned the elders and blamed it on the older queen so that she could become queen. The new Queen then declares martial law, and the other bees have to fight her guards in the worst fight scene I have ever seen. I think each character has like four frames of animation And it’s dubbed like a p o r n o. *the groans and moans of horribly animated bees* *N U T* The guards are defeated and the fake queen is chased off by a horrifying horrifying horrifying horrifying toad. *demon* The old queen is restored and she declares that flowers will no longer be drilled and that they will all be allowed to sleep. Cool. Next movie. So this final one’s a bit of a cheat but it’s become very well known as a knock-off and it’s honestly very interesting so I think it’s best to touch upon it- that being the peculiar existence of Maya The Bee. Now, you might have heard about those little franchise due to a controversy that took place earlier this year when it was discovered that someone had hidden phallic images in the middle of one of the episodes. It was quickly pulled from the digital shelves and apologies were given to all. Some Simpsons Character: Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that ponder. Quinton: But, BEE-lieve it or not, easter eggs phallic images are not the darkest place that this little bee has traveled. Maya the Bee originally appeared as a german character who appeared in a novel released in 1912. It is quite easy to see that this makes it very unlikely to be a knock-off- given that the character predates the birth of Jerry Seinfeld by 42 years. The original “Maya the Bee”
book has become controversial in recent years- due to Maya’s insistence within the book to go on numerous racially motivated rants about how bees are superior to all other races. I’m not making that up. but her first on-screen appearance occurred in 1924- when she and her friends were portrayed by real insects in what can only be described as the original Bee Movie. That’s good stuff. Maya fell into relative obscurity after this due to *cough* various reasons but she regained a market significance somewhere around the mid 1970s- when she was the star of her own anime in Japan. Weird right? I mean how would the Japanese and the German people have any sort of connection to begin with? The most recent product to propel Maya into the spotlight has been the animated feature “Maya the Bee Movie” or as it should probably be said- “Maya the BEE” …..”Movie” it’s hard to imagine that the specific designing of the title to only be one or two additional words away from the Jerry Seinfeld classic was done for any reason other than to grab the attention of people interested in Bee Movie however if one does decide to see Maya the Bee Movie as a knock-off, it’s certainly one of the prettiest that i have ever seen. The difference between Bee Movie and “Maya the Bee Movie” is that Bee Movie is very transfixed on the nitty gritty details of the human world. and while Maya the Bee Movie even barely suggests that the existence of humanity and instead just explores a meadow through the eyes of a small bee. Because of this, Maya the Bee Movie comes across as very innocent and Bee Movie comes across as heavily cynical. When you sit down and compare the different worlds created to represent the hives in each of these films the version in Maya’s also simply comes across as more intelligently crafted. The Bee Movie hive filled with cars, miniature versions of human inventions, and overall a human aesthetic just feels rather lazy. The kind of environment where they could just put in a McDonald’s without it feeling out of place. But the hive in Maya the Bee Movie simply feels so open and unique- the kind of place that you would love to explore as much as Maya seems to. I’m not sure that I have a lot to say about this movie critically. First of all, it’s clearly a movie meant for someone who’s very, very young and it simply seeks to teach children a few good lessons about understanding. But more importantly, unlike many of the other products that I tend to look at during Knock-Off November, “Maya The Bee Movie” was not created with any malicious purpose or to spin a product off of something bigger. It was just meant to be kind of cute and innocent and something you could put on for your toddler’s without worrying about if it would scar them by accident. Really I found watching this film just to be a relaxing experience- the kind of thing that I just needed to find peace at the end of my stressful week. Pretty good for a bee that used to be a n a z i if you ask me. And with that I’ve been Quinton Reviews- And that’s all you’d Bee- *instant regret* that’s all you need! I- I don’t- That’s just- that’s all you need. Have a good day. I don’t know where the hell that came from- Jesus Christ…

Stingless bee hive split 🐝


Hi, I’m nick from australiannativebee.com Today I’m going to show you two different types of splits you can do if you have an Existing hive That’s Fairly strong The first is (Exchanging boxes) and this is quite a common sort of split And most boxes are designed to be split this way The first thing you want to check is to see whether the box is really full This one has a clear panel and so I can check that quite easy This is the entrance of the new box and I’ve put a screen over it to keep the bees in and also on the inside of it. I’ve put Native Beeswax around the hole and this will help the bees make an entrance tunnel at a later date The first thing you’ll need to do is undo the straps or the tie downs holding your old full Box Together. I Like to use a propolis chisel or wax chisel to pop the boxes apart because it’s fairly subtle on the open This is actually a Downunder box designed by Dean Haley. It has the honey super at the base of the box I Won’t be touching the honey super today I’m just interested in where the brood is positioned between these two top boxes This box has plywood separators, and you can see they’ve worked quite. Well here. I’m Looking for some queen cells now, and they’re usually situated on the edge of the brood with Tetragonula Carbonaria You can see one up here. It’s a larger cell and also there’s one down here on the edge it’s very important to make sure both halves of the box have an even amount of Brood and The remaining box there has a good amount of brood and it also has two queen cells When doing a split like this you’re taking half the brood and therefore half the “Age of Brood” Meaning there’s going to be a slump in bee numbers When the eggs that are supposed to be there go to hatch, and they’re not there Here I’m sitting the new frame on top of the box Making sure nothing’s in the way because I don’t want pests coming in through that crack between the boxes So I want it nice and tight Place the frame down gently and make sure you blow any bees out of that crack because you don’t want to squash any That’s just bad beekeeping place the honey super on top of the top box and Get ready to tape it up. Here’s what the honey super looks like Now the old frame that came off this box that keys into your new box And you will have made a new colony just by swapping box frames around The last step is to use some tape and run around those cracks in the boxes because syrphid fly Phorid fly and hive beetle all love to get into native boxes that have just been split Where you have broken honey pots and broken Pollen pots After use it around and taped up your box use some warm soapy water to wipe down Any honey or Pollen off the outside of the box Because dean’s box had the entrance hole at the top and my new box has the entrance hole at the bottom I’ll need to drill a new entrance hole for this box and The job will be done The next transfer, we’ll be doing is transferring bees from the smaller box to a larger box in some cases this will work The process is going to be relatively simple we’re simply going to cut out the top section of a box and put it into the new Box I Have already made sure there’s some queen cells in this brood so should take off and make a good colony again, I’m using the propolis chisel and I don’t want to squash any bees. So I’m just slowly working my way around as to just push them out of the way Now I’m going to lift it up put it on top of another box frame so that the brood isn’t being squashed on the ground And I’m going to cut around the edges of this box. So the whole nest structure can be removed as one Have a look at all these bees on the underside of the clear panel Don’t throw this clear panel away because there’s a lot of useful resins on the underside of that that the bees will need Even though this part of the film is in fast-forward you can see how slowly I’m working along the edge This is so the bees have time to move out of the way and don’t get cut in half while you’re cutting the nest structure Once you’ve cut all the way around the nest structure it should lift out and you can place the whole nest structure into your new box Try to Avoid putting any broken honey or pollen pots in I can’t stress this enough Unless you want pests descending on your hive like the angels of hell. Do not do this Once you’ve checked everything is good make sure the nest structure isn’t touching the sides of any of your new box this way the bees can get around and make any necessary repairs to the Nest I Usually will give the bees three days in a room inside my house that way no pests can get to them After the three days up, I will reduce the entrance hole so that only one bee can enter an exit This will give them time to finish their entrance Tube and ward off any pests that might want to enter
