Call in to speak with the host
Ted Dennard, aka the Honey Bee Whisperer joins host Robin Milling from the Savannah Bee Company in Savannah, Georgia. Ted has a passion for honey bees that is unbridled, insisting they are sweet, no pun intended, until pissed off or provoked; he stopped counting after 20,000 stings!
Otherwise,Ted says they go on their merry way buzzing away and supplying the world with goodness and healing as honey works wonders as a moisturizer and antiseptic. The Savannah Bee Company store carries a full range of honey products from bath to baking; he's in the process of developing a line of honey based shampoos and conditioners. And of course the delicious Tupelo and Sourwood honey can be sampled on an apple slice or just licked off a spoon.
Speaking of Tupelo honey, Ted testifies that Ulee's Gold where Peter Fonda played a beekeeper is the real deal as it was made on the Apalachicola River from authentic Tupeolo trees. In fact Savannah Bee Company has Tupelo honey from that very same spot where the movie was filmed, and his daughter Bridget has become a steady customer!
A former member of the Peace Corp, Ted enjoys traveling with the bees to educate children and give them a new found appreciation for honey bees.
You would think with his boyish looks and charm, Ted would be hosting his own reality show but he hasn't had a TV since highschool! He'd much rather be 'bee-hind' the scenes making honey.
