Somewhere in my old used up mind, I remember Apis posting a list of books to read.  Use the search button above and look for the Apis suggested books.  Remember that only God could know more about bees than does Apis.

Some very smart people (good looking too) were born in Vernon, BC where Apis lives. :) :D

"if you are keeping bees, you are NOT a dummy.."

Speak for yourself.   :P

There's so much to learn with these bees I kinda do feel like a dummy. Fortunately I have a awsome forum very rich in knowlage that folks are kind enough to share. It reminds me of when I started my trade 26 years ago as a Hvac service tech. I didn't know anything and when I learned a little something it just excited me. As time went on and I learned more, the more comfortable and confident I become. And to this day I learn something daily. I hope the same goes with my quest to keep bees. So thanks for all y'alls help (yes y'all is a word in the south ;D ;D) I am sure I will have lots of questions I just ask for patience and hope one day I'll be able to return the favor.     Marty

I've been at it for 40 years and am still a bee dummy, so don't get in a big hurry to learn it all.
