Re: Why do beekeepers argue so much?
It could be because their life depends on many factors such as weather, inflation, new laws to deal with and so on, another possibility is how many fly by night people who want all the advice they can get and then either drop out of beekeeping or they start to argue with years of knowledge that their mentor has.
I like crotchety old beekeepers and farmers, they have experienced a lot over the years, good times and bad, so they are a wealth of knowledge if you can endure the grumpiness! Another reason they could be mean is because they are tired. Someone who relies on agriculture for a living basically never stops working, if not physically they are working mentally and have 1000 things going through their mind.
One thing about "mean" farmers and beekeepers, if you prove yourself to them they will doing just about anything for you.
