There is much to lament in the honeybee world these days: poisons, parasites, disease and flood damage. In this talk, Don Studinski, Colorado State Beekeeper Association Pesticide Committee Chair, will specifically avoid the depressing stuff. This talk is intended to lightheartedly look into the world of honeybees with a little education and a few laughs. It's just intended to be fun.
That said, if the audience really wants to focus on the frightening stuff, there is plenty, and he will gladly answer their questions.
