In this episode JoJo talks with Brent Hefley, bee keeper and wrangler, operator of Plan Bees a Bee relocation company (saying the Bees!) and a fountain of knowledge of native Oregon bees. 

They talk honey bees - and how they are dealing with mites, but not really in danger.  But the bees that are in danger due to lack of habitat are Oregon’s native bees.  Learn how you can create a small but important bee haven where you live. 

And the links -- so many great links to find yourself in Bee Heaven.
