Every two years, beekeepers from around the globe swarm to a chosen city for a week to discuss the honey bee: The latest research, latest products, the latest gadgets, and the must have knowledge for all those interested in the honey bee and honey business. It is called: Apimondia.
This year Apimondia was held in Montreal, Canada. Kim was able to attend and provide the story for this episode. Kim reports on what defines Apimondia, who attends, its history and why it exists. He also walked the vendor floor and brings to this episode several interesting product introductions.
