** Finlandia University held a "bee extravaganza" last Friday. Many thanks to Rene' Johnson and her helpers for putting on the event. Melissa Hronkin spoke about the lessons of the hive, Les McBean spoke on hobby beekeeping, and I spoke about the Hive House. Hopefully the seeds were sown for the birth of a Western UP Beekeeping Club.
*** My bees have all been "sugar boarded", ventilated, insulated and tucked in tor the winter. Hope they all stay rested and healthy during the next five months of snow and cold.
