I have never understood how the guy survives.doing some big speaking gigs, I assume it was paying better then his beekeeping.
then he got up on a ladder, and that fell over :lookout: sorry had to... I realy hope he is better now, I don't wish a broken back on anyone.He then started a business moving shipping containers to properties that wanted one, moved 2 or 3, then that fell over.
It does make sense to buy TF bees if available ( in 2016). It is, and was not, a sin to buy a commercial bee. How wise is a different story. It is the fervor of many background echos of many posts that are a bit of a giggle.This was in 2016, if you are wanting to be a TF beekeeper, makes sense to me to not buy treated bees?
