I'm a northern beekeeper of 10 years who has given up on southern bees, drugs and miticides. I haven't given treatments of any kind in 4 years and and currently working on the transition to foundationless. I aquire stock from swarms, cut-outs, and bee trees and and try to perpetuate the kinds of bees I want from this. When I don't have my face in the hive, I'm a certified hemodialysis technician, husband, and father who enjoys camping, mtn. biking, running, kayaking and just about anything else that involves playing outdoors.
