116 – The Slithering

This episode coils up and strikes at the heart of a slippery subject… Snakes in the bee yard.  There are all kinds of different critters out there that we often don’t notice as we go about our bee business, focused on what has become a habitual process of tasks.  But that doesn’t mean that those critters don’t notice us as we go about our work.  Some of these critters might cause us to do way more harm to ourselves then they ever could on their own as we try to escape a sudden unexpected encounter.  But a few of these critters can pose a great danger to the unaware beekeeper who is focused on their routine and not paying attention to their surroundings.  Tune in now to hear a few close encounters of the slithering kind and remember to be mindful of your surroundings when out in nature.
