Brooklyn Beekeeper Busted

A Brooklyn beekeeper has been busted for backyard beekeeping. She's received a Notice of Violation from the city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and will have a hearing on Tuesday, June 23rd. This is in the midst of Pollinator Week, which runs from June 22 to June 28. There will be a rally in support of this beekeeper at City Hall at 12:30 Tuesday.

Are you still bee-ing, Matthew?

We have a question which you may be able to answer: why are the bees (not honey-) so still sometimes, en masse, on the flowers...chilly (not today, mind you)?
