Re: The Importance of Regular Inspection
Yes Greg, working the bees is very therapeutic. Helps me deal with the unpredictability of married life, 30 years this June. What one does with their bees and how they manage them is of no concern to others, but I do agree with Nancy in that if you choose to be a beekeeper, you owe the bees the best that you can give them consistant with your management objectives. To often you hear of an otherwise viable hive sucumbing to poor management.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
