From Tammy Horn, state apiarist:
Now that spring is here, KY Farm Bureau Mike Feldhaus’s interview with Butler County beekeeper Jerry Miller and his method of dealing with *wood* bees is worth another listen: http://kyfbnewsroom.com/across-kentucky-september-11-2015/.
And this: The comment period for EPA’s Preliminary Pollinator Risk Assessment for Imidacloprid has been extended until April 14. The EPA encourages stakeholders and interested members of the public to read and review the risk assessment and related documents and submit comments to the docket at http://www.regulations.gov.
