For the second time in three years the local bee club meeting has been rescheduled due to.....get this....A swarm has moved into the Ag center where the meetings are held!
Due to the policies set by our former Chief Apiary Inspector,Jerry Hayes, the building will be closed so that the bees can be EXTERMINATED. Such a sad thing. I pitched a fit the last time they did this and plan to pitch another one this time!
FYI, Jerry Hayes (yes the same one who writes the "Classroom" column for ABJ) has moved on to greener pastures and has taken a job offer from none other than the Monsanto Corp. I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot about him in the future!
