Sometimes the best way to learn how to manage difficult situations with your hives or simply gain valuable knowledge about beekeeping is to communicate with other seasoned professionals. Especially with the rapid bee losses commercial beekeepers have experienced, it has been difficult trying to make any decision as far as what you should or should not do. In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, hosts, June Stoyer and Tom Theobald will talk to the President of the Boulder County Beekeepers' Association, beekeeper, Miles McGaughey. Stay tuned!
