On Beekeeping, Jerry, Dadant & Sons, Bee Supply Store (2008)
This audio clilp was recorded while at Dadant & Sons, Bee Supply Store. Jerry explains beekeeping and honey bee biology to me. This was the first time I looked inside of a bee hive. After that day, I was hooked.
In "The Life of the Bee", written in 1901, Maeterlinck states, “The first time that we open the hive comes over us an emotion akin to that we might feel at profaning some unknown object, charged perhaps with dreadful surprise, as a tomb“ (Sutro 27).
