Nicely done BjornBee. It seems like most of the bees survived the last mild winter in Michigan and there was a lot of swarming here last spring. One of the big local commercial guys got flooded out and people in the surrounding cities thought his bees were flying into their cities like locusts from biblical times. Some people were really freaking out! The truth is the clouds of bees in my little city were from feral hives that survived the winter in trees; not from a bee keeper 10 miles away. However people put the blame on the bee keeper.
Not to get too political in this section of the forum, but it’s the darn local governments which cause me a lot more grief than the feds. They truly think they can do anything they want and are immune from State law.
I got a laugh out of the proposal for formal bee training.
Like whom is going to train the newbees? We all know, you ask 10 beeks the same question and you get 10 different responses. Which one of the 10 beeks is the City Council going to pick
