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.
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.
I always Enjoy reading your blog posts
Heard your talk at Helensburgh a couple of years ago about varroa and DWV which I found fascinating. I'm a retired microbiologist and newbie beekeeper so it hit me both ways. I've just realised that you also do this blog which is a great source of practical information. Many thanks for all of that.
It's a while since I first suggested to you that I'd like to buy you a coffee (figuratively) - and at last I can. Just spotted this today as I (unusually) read your post on a phone. Every post is worth reading, and today's especially. With lockdown, there has been less support here at association level. Which is not good timing as my beekeeping has increased 5-fold this season; I became the first port of call for swarm collecting for my locality. I do read a lot, but your blog is pure gold - or honey
As a new beekeeper I find I am continually referring to your website for advice and clearly explained facts. I am in awe of your literary output and very appreciative of the effort you put into helping others
