Mr Miner Not Correct

Mr. T. B. Miner, in his work, has allowed the preparation of queen

cells previous to swarming, but he has put off the time of the swarm

issuing eight or nine days too long. That is, he has the young queen

matured so that she commences piping first, which does not occur more

than one time in fifty.

Now I think it more than probable that many readers will have some

doubts in regard to my statements about this swarming matter. Yet I

think I can give directions sufficiently particular that they may

remove them themselves. They should bear in mind that they have no

right to be _positive_ on any subject without an investigation.
