Mushrooms for Bees

This is a 30min talk a bit like a TED talk but given at a university by a scientist specialising in mycillium.
His little porkpie hat is made from a mushroom!
The bit about bees doesn't start until approximately the 27min mark.

And this guy talks really fast! Probably need to reply the section over a few times because he has so much to say.

He tells why bees are now so suseptible to mites and what you can do about it for your own hives.

I found the whole of this talk very illuminating and worth the 30mins. If only he'd had a drink of water with him!
Right near the end he talks about the human race starting out as forest people and how our lives and health is intertwined with forests yet we continue to cut them down at an exponential rate.
To the point where there already seems no way back to health for either us or the forests.

Hello ClissAT

Thanks for posting this, I found it very interesting. I don’t keep bees but it’s on my one day list. Do you have a hive?Wonder what the “mushrooms beds” at his house involved? I’ve had the exact medical protocol he mentioned regarding his mother and also took a supplement containing medicinal mushrooms during treatment - looked up the ingredients this morning and it included turkey tail. Amazing. Funnily enough I’ve never had a cold or flu since then, 3 years ago.
