"I think this is important to report the context of the numbers and what they really reflect because these are peak season numbers and peak season is the time when all beekeepers, including myself have the maximum number of colonies but is not reflective of the losses that we've incurred or that we are likely to incur in the future and have to build again," stated Brandi.
