Bee Keeping: Mysteries Of Bee-keeping Explained

The only condition when we can rest and feel safe is when _we know all

our stocks are full of bees_. Even the "moth-proof" hive containing

combs will be scented out by the moth, when there are no bees to guard

it. An argument to show that a moth can enter where a bee can go is

unnecessary, and a little observation, I think, will prove that her

eggs sometimes go where she is not allowed.
