The topic for the Bee Smart beekeeping project website this week is learning a bit more about the notable and notorious beekeepers that have moved the world of beekeeping over the years.
Some have given us great innovations in methods and equipment. Others have increased our understanding immensely. Still others have given us experience in what not to do rather than do what they actually did.
Let’s chat about some if the great minds and personalities that have helped modern apiculture become what it is today, shall we?
Hey there folks. We are still trying to maintain a certain focus on the things we post on here at the Bee Smart beekeeping project on a weekly basis.
This week, we’re going to pay a bit more attention to bees and pesticides. Both the Crossword and Wordsearch puzzles are based on this topic and Big Bear will be doing a video doing a mini “class” on the subject as well.
Hop on over to the website forums and share your ideas and experiences having to do with bees and pesticides in your little piece of the world. We’d love to see you there.
Do your hives stay out near a wooded area where skunks hang out? Next time you go out to check your hives and the bees are behaving just absolutely nasty, check them out. Does the population of the colony seem weak? Are there scratch marks near the entrance? There’s a pretty good chance that a skunk has been terrorizing your hive by scratching at the entrance and eating your bees. No wonder they’re so nasty. Gee thanks you striped punk.
