You have a bee yard with 10 hives. That have just been inspected by the state bee inspector. He was a gruffy old ex marine who forgot he is no longer in the military. Wanting to be hard nose and pushing his power off on you. He tells you your hives are not healthy. He comes to the conclusion there is foul brood spores in all your hives although there is no apparent signs leading you to believe the hives have foul brood. He says 3 hives have signs of nosemia each of these have a few yellow and brown streaks on the front of the hives. Nothing that really concerns you since it is early spring and you just came out of a harsh winter. He also points out its late march and the bees are not building up like they should. But you are running a russian strain of bee. He belittles you into thinking you know absolutely nothing about bees. How you going to prove this character wrong without him shutting down your operation.
