South Africa and Varroa Mites

I finally got a chance to do something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I got to sit down and talk with a real South African beekeeper about the impact of varroa mites, and their current indifference to them. Enjoy!

Me, in the News!

A few weeks ago, I was featured on the local, and Philadelphia news (on the same day!). I actually got to tell the truth about honeybees, and didn’t regurgitate the same 3 talking points every other beekeeper says when a camera is recording them.

Below is the link to the Philadelphia Action News broadcast which was a little more standard.

What do you think? How did I do?

First feral honeybee Swarm of 2021

Earth day brought 48°F for the high temperature, and my first swarm call of the year that I could comfortably drive to. The swarm issued from a tree that has had a honeybee colony in it for a few years. Despite the cold, the bees were relatively well-behaved, and went right into the hive. I noticed several other trees that looked hollow on my way off the property. I expect to return in a few days for secondary swarms.

Bee Talk with Biology Instructor Casie Berkhouse

In this episode, I speak with Casie Berkhouse, a biology instructor and beekeeper from Northern Pennsylvania. This episode, like most others, is unedited and completely unscripted. As always, I’d love to hear your feedback! Leave me a message. I will definitely get back to you.
