Unfortunately, Berkeley is a little far for me to travel for a 2 hour talk, but maybe someone who does attend could give us a run down after. Does Les use his TBH's in the almond groves? It was my understanding that him and other local beekeepers in NM had set up sort of a self imposed quarantine to keep out varroa and other pests in their area. Doing almond pollination in CA would seem to expose his bees to all that and more. Just wondering.
