New TV program Bee Czar
« on: March 10, 2022, 05:07:48 pm »
Did anyone see the new Discovery Channel TV show, Bee Czar, that premiered last night?  Located in or near Austin, TX he is part of a non-profit, Honey Bee Rescue, and acquires bees doing cut outs, catching swarms, and collecting colonies that are drawing comb on limbs and such.  That is what we know so far.  His plans are to open a certified food kitchen and delve into agro-tourism.

It's easy to see why the network chose Walter to be the subject of the show.  He looks and acts like an old hippie although he is not old enough to be a "real" hippie.  He reminds me more of the Phish generation.

It was mentioned in yesterdays meeting - mainly "be prepared to have people ask about it" and to stress to people that most normal people wear PPE when handling bees.  I haven't seen it yet, so can't personally comment.
Keeping of bees is like the direction of sunbeams.
