    I would like to extend and open invitation to join us for a podcast on beekeeping. It is part of the Wildlife Pro Network series of podcasts. If you haven't checked them out yet, you are missing out. Robb Russell from WildlifePro.net does a great job and there is loads of informative information being shared.

    Thursday May 14th at 8PM EST -> The Wildlife Pro Network Podcasts

    Now don't be scared off by the term "podcast". You don't need to download/install/configure anything on your computer to participate. In fact, you don't even need your computer. An ordinary phone is all that is needed (of course you can use your computer if you elect to do so)

    Just call (724) 444-7444 and use call id - 16456 It is that simple.

    We will have some experienced bee removers to kick it off, but the direction of the discussion will go however the participants lead it. So come with your topics (beekeeping related of course).

    Bob Evans, who will be hosting, is a Nationally Certified Wildlife Control Professional and is a full time nuisance wildlife control operator doing business as Live Trapping by Matt. Bob has been keeping bees about 20 years and covers all of New York State for bee removals. Bob is also a pro at these podcasts and has a wealth of knowledge to share.

    Steve Prince, who is from Georgia and captures more swarms in a give year than the majority of us capture in a lifetime, combined!

    I am a 2nd generation beekeeper with 30 years experience. The last 5 years I have been focusing on feral stock, and operate a part-time bee removal business in the Catskill Mountains and surrounding areas under Bushkill Apiary.

    I was hoping to get a few more removal experts to participate. Unfortunately , due to hearing issues, Iddee needs to stick with text based correspondents, and I could not confirm participation from the others as it is getting into the busy season.

    What a great promotion for our regularly scheduled Robo.

    If you have free nights and weekends a call direct dialing is recommended or you can go to the site prior and download Talkshoe Pro software from talkshoe and connect with just a microphone, VOIP as Rob mentioned also works fine. As far as rotary phones I doubt access but you can try!

    I also invited folks on twitter and used this url http://tinyurl.com/qakfqf to my blog. Hope to see all of you and don't worry about not being able to get in the software handles up to 300 callers in so try to break our record of 183 users.

    I just came from the podcast. If you missed it, you missed a fun and educational 2 hours. With an unknown number of people on the phone at one time, it was amazingly well controlled and not one time was there an episode of many talking at once. My hat's off to Robb and all the participants for a job well done.
