    My name is Parker and for school, I have to create an innovative solution that has to do with conservation. The topic I have chosen is bees. I need to interview at least one beekeeper. I ask that you will help me and will answer the few questions I have below.

    1. How long have you been keeping bees?

    2. How many colonies do you currently have?

    3. Have you lost any colonies in the past three years?

    4. If so, why.

    5. What is the biggest issue you have concerning beekeeping?

    well since no one else answered you, been keeping bees 6.5 years
    I have 4, 3 on my site,
    I have lost one to starvation due to an early freeze that lowered their population, several others to robbery, we have had poorly timed weather that contributed
    Climate change and pesticide use (aerial spraying for mosquitoes that occurs in daytime)

    I didn't post these, not only that I don't think I answered them. In a hurry today.
