    Randy Oliver was excellent as were all the instructors, and we thank Pat Bono for putting on a fine workshop, and nice to finally meet Cam and all the fine people at the program and Cornell for providing the building and Cornell and Mike Johnston for providing the hives, all gentle as kittens except the one that they filmed Randy going through .

    and to the beesource lurker that was on team D, that picked the frame the queen was on 4 out of 5 times before pulling the frames from the hive
    not only that the lurker did it two years in a row, and the only reason they didn't get 5 of 5 is one of our hives had two queens.

    and an email I just got from another member of team D

    And her technique helped me find a queen today that I hadn't seen in awhile!

    Meanwhile, Fight The Mite!
