My new favorite podcast!

I just discovered this podcast and I absolutely love it!! Very relatable and easy to listen to, but lots of good information! I like how there are frequent guests on the show.

You guys need to study up more and speak with actual beekeepers, because there were several talking points on this episode that are incorrect about honeybees. I was hoping to learn something from this podcast. For one, queens do have a stinger and can sting, however it’s very uncommon and hard for them to sting us due to the size of their abdomen. They will sting other queen bees to kill their competitors. Another point, is worker bees can lay eggs and actually make drone brood (male bees). They are not technically sterile. Also, bees are not defensive of themselves away from the hive when foraging for nectar and pollen, they will be defensive of their hive, but you really have to mess with the hive or be to close after dusk before they defend. Random occurring bee stings away from a hive are accidental, not intentional on the bees behalf I.e. stepping on a bee, swatting a bee or placing your hand on a bee. Come on guys!

So glad I found this!!

This is a great podcast! It's fun and informative! I would definitely recommend it to anyone with an interest in entomology!
