Hi beeks,
A friend just sent me a link to this stunning lecture - with photos - by a chap called Dennis Van Englesdorp who is the State Apiarist for the whole of Pennsylvania in the USA. It is a talk for the general public - rather than a specialist talk for beekeepers, but if you have ever seen a more inspirational speaker - I would like to hear about him/ her. Make yourself a coffee - or grab a glass of beer/wine/cider and sit down and watch this - it may give you some ideas for creating a similar talk for your own local community.

Cheers

Yes interesting talk still not getting to the point in my mined that commercial beekeepers and farmers on the scale of the us are pushing the boundaries to far and the bees can not keep up they are however the canary in the nine and we will have to take note

Yup, great video, great enthusiasm from Dennis van Engelsdorp.

For those of you who haven't read the similar thread started by Graham on 'another' forum, you really ought to follow it up with an easy-to-read online refereed paper which brings the story - by the same guy - right up to date.

Then tell me what you learned about pesticides and CCD!

all the best
