Re: 21st century beekeeping snake oil
"...Nope she says. They all started from bees I got from a fellow who only keeps ferals…so they were resistant...."
I find that anyone who is that dead certain about anything concerning bees is in for a rude awaking ...
If they persist long enough and through enough failures.
I find many with that attitude would rather give up beekeeping than admit just how little they know....and usually find some excuse like not enough time or too many farmers with sprayers.
This goes double for those with the superior attitude about "their " particular strain of bees.
It seems that beekeeping is particularly attractive to a certain mindset that are sure with a "fresh " look they can be better beekeepers than you or I and "fix" the decline of bees.
