Slaying Mites | Dr. Samuel Ramsey

This interview was months in the making. Mandy made her first request for an interview via Instagram while at a cocktail party… let’s just say she was feeling courageous. She officially booked it in February and then recorded it from her apiary on May 6th. On the day of the interview, she was minutes away from receiving the guests phone call when a swarm call came in. She didn’t answer it, obviously, but they also sent a text with photos that she received during the interview and it was a PRIME swarm right in her neighborhood, right near a patch of known bee trees, hanging from a tree at eye level. Holy smokes. SO, not only did she get to have an EPIC conversation with today's guest, she also got to go and collect and EPIC swarm right afterwards. It was an amazing day! He’s a scientist who shocked the bee world when he tested and proved what Varroa mites are really pigging out on. Meet the talented, the brilliant singing scientist Dr. Samuel Ramsey!
