In this week's Podcast: For beekeepers who are overwintering colonies, it may seem that Spring is still a long way off but there are things we can do to check the health of our bees. One of those is checking for nosema, stay tuned to hear some of my thoughts and what the results could mean for your coming season.

Hi, I’m Stewart Spinks and welcome to Episode 244 of my podcast, Beekeeping Short and Sweet.
