I have been reading news accounts of new beekeepers (welcome, all) http://www.beesource.com/forums/imag...s/applause.gif and cities becoming more "beekeeper friendly" (where were you when I lived there?). http://www.beesource.com/forums/imag...ratch_head.gif I am wondering about the relative geographic dispersion between the newbies and the growers. In other words, are the new beekeepers geographically located where the growers are, or are they simply responding to an ecological urge without necessarily helping the basic problem? http://www.beesource.com/forums/imag...lies/shhhh.gif
