The December 2012 Issure of the American Bee Journal is hot off the stands! I've had a glorious morning reading through the great articles such as 'My Father, the Hands-off Beekeeper' by William Blomstedt, the adventures of 'Small-scale Honey Extracting and Super Cleanup-Learning From My Mistakes' by Howard Scott, 'Utilizing Honey Bees to Enhance Deer Forage-(The Plaska Experiment-Year 1)' by James D. Ray, 'The Mystery and Myth of Organic Beekeeping - Part 3 of 3 Parts' by William Blomstedt, 'Sick Bees-Part 18E-Colony Collapse Revisited-Genetically Modified Plants' by Randy Oliver, 'Managed Pollintor CAP - RNAi in Treating Honey Bee Diseases' by Yamping (Judy) Chen and Jay D. Evans, and for the holiday season 'Fabulous French Holiday Feast' by T'Lee Sollenberger. Enjoy!
“When California was wild, it was one sweet bee garden throughout its entire length,
north and south, and all the way across from the snowy Sierra to the ocean.”
~John Muir, “The Bee Pastures”
