Teaching about Bees

   I taught my first Introductory Beekeeping class tonight.  It was fun.  There were some really nice folks asking good questions and I'd guess about half of the class will probably start working with bees this year!  Hooray!   This is such a good thing - the bees need our help so desperately, and since we need them so badly, it is in our own best interest to keep bees!

Start 'em young, that's what I say!

   One of my students is an inventor who has modified the age old design of the hive tool. He gave me one and I am eager to try it. They call it EZ Pry.  He has added a couple of bends in the prying end, which gives the tool a pivot point.  It makes so much sense!  It is one of those "why didn't anyone think of this before" inventions - it is so simple and so useful!! They are trying to market it through MannLake, but if you are interested, check out the live link.
