Buy The Apiarist a coffee


Thanks for visiting ... I've got 500,000 mouths to feed, a weekly column on the science, biology and practice of beekeeping to write, and a server that seems to need near-constant upgrading.

You cannot learn beekeeping from books or from the web. It's a practical subject and nothing beats the experience gained by inspecting hundreds of colonies a year - come rain or shine.

But, you can learn why the colony is doing what it's doing by reading about it, and you can also learn what you should be doing by reading my blog ( ).

Which is where BuyMeACoffee comes in ... the caffeine will help the late night writing marathons to meet my self-imposed Friday afternoon deadline. And what's not spent on coffee (or pizza) will help offset the monthly fees for the webserver.

Thank you

Many thanks for the article on DWW.  I'll have to read it again, slowly, in the hope to understand it all. I'm in awe! 😊

Thank you 'PT' for supporting The Apiarist. As we segue into autumn the topics covered are likely to become a bit more eclectic as there's less need to be tied to the beekeeping calendar so much. All sorts of things planned ... and now I have a caffeine fix to help me deliver them. With thanks again 😀
