March — Dr. Kirsten Traynor, editor of Two Million Blossoms, will be sharing insights with us while she’s on her “state of Michigan” speaking tour. The talk is called Halting the Unstoppable Swarm: Good swarm management is one of the hardest things to learn. Despite a beekeeper’s best efforts, some colonies just insist on getting ready to go.
