    I want to be to the point too,
    with the naive adolescent remarks why would anyone want you around their apiary and business?
    I don't think this is for you, there is something better suited for your talents out there.
    good luck.

    Thanks, I love steak. As long as I don't have to climb Pike's Peak to get it. Where in CO is Norwood? Norwood,NY is just ten miles from here. A Son lived at Ft Carson a few years. A Nephew is an ametuer beer maker and an Air Traffic Controller at Denver.

    sqkcrk is a screen name, wish I could change it, people who know me call me Mark. Or, Mr B. Or in some case Rabee, I mean Rabbi Berninghausen. [I love spell check. I know how to spell my own last name, but spell check doesn't think it's spelled correctly. Ha!!]

    Norwood is far from most things. There is a fairly popular resort town called Telluride nearby. We are about 6 hours west across the mountains from Denver. No climbing for me either, ill take the pickup.

    Does he have a mite problem in Denver?

    I did. Painted them too. Bottled and labeled $2,000.00 worth of honey and then, after visiting an Elder, delivered it.

    Beer mites? Only way to really find out is to drain the bottles, isn't it?

    Your desire to run a modest amount of bees without running for honey will put you out of busi ness before you ever get going. Bees need honey for successful propagation. Make a good honey crop and have hives health and strong for the next polinnation season. Make poor honey crop and your hives will fall apart come winter. Bees winter poorly on corn syrup. Learn to run your bees for honey and you will succeed as a pollinator,no need for a good job. If you are interested in learning more about commercial honey prodution, I am hiring soon for a 6-7 week honey harvest season,housing furnished. You will learn lots.

    One of these days, Im going to drive my kids to California and let them take in Disney land, while I find a beekeeper who will take me on as a labourer for a couple weeks... I would love to see that business in action.
