After 15 years of bee keeping, I am seriously considering quitting. In the past 5 years I have not bottled one jar of honey. I have pampered and medicated and requeened until I think it may be a worthless cause. Didn't even get a swarm call this year.
They are fascinating creatures, but I think mankind is going to do them in. And that really makes me angry. Not looking for sympathy or anything like that, just wanted to rant.
Okay I am done.
