Beekeeping is as diverse as the people who keep bees. Some of those folks might argue about how I keep bees, or how you keep bees. The way I see it, if your keeping your bees alive, then your doing something right. Who am I to argue about someone's method, if that method works?
The purpose of this site is NOT to tell you what your doing wrong. There are plenty of places you can hear that. My purpose is to tell you what I do, that works, where I live, in my climate, with my bees.
Beekeeping can be simple and easy if you want it to be. It can also be as hard as you want it to be.
A quote from the American Bee Journal, January 2014 issue, Dr. Kieth Delaplane;
"The more one studies some craft, art or discipline, whether gardening, dairy goats, bird watching, bonsai, wine making, illuminated manuscripts, bagpipes, quilting, Shakespeare, Saxon law, gene therapy, evolution, religion,or beekeeping, that thing never gets smaller, it always gets bigger....... The Horizon retreats in the act of reaching for it."
