Re: [nycbeekepingmeetup] FAQ answering member questions now available re DOH Spraying Alert

Thanks, this was helpful.  We were considering trying to keep our bees in for a day.  I sent you the specific article suggesting that.  I wonder if Jim knows anything about sprinkling the hives to mimic rain to keep the bees in for a day.  I know he's suggesting that we not close the hives off, and I agree that with the heat it seems risky, but our populations are down in both our hives and this is a very bad time for us to lose bees.
