Glyphosate and Honey Bees
There have been quite a few posts about the recent research linking Roundup (glyphosate) and honey bee health. I encourage folks to read the source paper, rather than summaries that are republished on the web. This will provide a better understanding of the underlying research methodologies and results.
An unexpected Swarm!
I put off collecting one last swarm trap until last week. It was hung in a tree and as I was taking it down I dropped the trap. It traveled home with me in the car and then I sat it outside my garage figuring I'd clean it up over winter. Well, it warmed up today and some honey bees came out for cleansing flights! I had checked it last in early August, so this is a late season swarm. I weighed it against an empty trap and realized they seem to have a reasonable amount of stores. So, off it went to the bee yard and I’ll check them out in the spring!
