Thanks, Les!  This looks very interesting.  I have it on my list of things to watch.

Only had time to watch the first seven minutes or so but what a great video. A friend of mine was asking me about Basswood trees a few weeks ago who wants to go to the beekeeping meeting with me. He has two of them on his property that he knows of.

The dandilions explain where my bees may be getting their pollen from up to and including today. I noted six flowering dandilions just walking to my hive yesterday. How many more are in our fields and the field and pastures in our area, of which there are thousands of acres.
I don't know what I'm doing, but am doing it with confidence.

Les, this video is fantastic!  I love the message Mike Connor is sending.  I would like to have him speak at my local bee club.   :goodone:
