Most Beekeepers have their own 'pet' methods and I am no different. Please accept that I have done much research and put a great deal of thought into them. Even so, my methods may not suit everyone.

I may promote certain aspects of beekeeping, but please do not accept them as 'the definitive standard'. I have modified my ideas several times in the light of experience and new thinking. Over the last few years I have revised and down sized my physical beekeeping due to progressing disability. My 'hands on' beekeeping is coming to an end, but I shall put my mental effort into publishing many more pages on beekeeping subjects.

Please study the material that I put forward and accept or reject it according to the way it aligns with your own ideas. This is what progress is all about. The more that established thinking is challenged and discussed the more we will all ultimately know.
