Instrumental Insemination of Queen Bees



I was recently up at Davis, California, learning how to instrumentally inseminate queen bees.

The ten person class included beekeepers who had come from the United Kingdom, Colombia, Hawaii, Georgia, Connecticut, Washington, Florida, and possibly other states. The fellow sitting next to me was an Eastern Orthodox monk (complete in his monk robes) named Brother Daniel from a monastery in Florida.
