Ask one question to 10 beekeepers and you get 10 answers, right? Not all of those answers are wrong, but this worsens when a new beekeeper begins doing what experienced or commercial beekeepers recommend without the knowledge of how to do it. Let’s face it, you are confused!! Oxalic or formic? Crystals or dribble? Oxalic and glycerin on shop towels? Langstroth hive? Flow hive? Warre? Top bar? Plastic frames or real beeswax frames? Treat once in the spring and once in the fall?
Most colonies are lost from mistakes beekeepers are making by following the old paradigm of beekeeping!
Information is being circulated on how to keep bees that’s based on beekeeping prior to varroa, viruses and reduced foraging opportunities! It’s time to shift this paradigm and stop listening to wrong information. Let me introduce your to the new paradigm of beekeeping based on proven science, not club chatter folklore. Taking beekeeping classes is essential for today’s beekeeper. Be well informed before you start keeping bees by enrolling in one of our beekeeping classes or hiring us to mentor you in every step of the way.
