NZBF Hive Inspector/Mentor Required, Hutt Valley

Recommended Posts

Due to a recently-occurring event, a few of us beginner keepers in the Valley now find ourselves without the help, guidance, and hive inspections we valued so much.

We are seeking to establish a new rapport with another mentor and are looking for direction in doing this. We'd thought that the job would suit a senior or retired keeper with AFB and bee disease credentials and the patience to steer inexperienced individuals down the right path. Recompense and all the tea they can drink will be supplied on site.

Thanks,

John.

Hi John, did you get any traction on this? I'm a wanabee beekeeper, planning to start this spring, but looking for a mentor as well.

Off the top of my head I can think of John Burnet from Capital Beekeeping Supplies - he does apairy consulting and is based in Welly. Check his website and you'll find his number. :)

Thank you Team. Yes, John B would be a good man to approach and I'll do so at the next Club meeting.

RolandO: Somebody will point out to me how to send PM's I'm sure, but how about linking up for knowledge-sharing?

 

Cheers.

You both need to be donors to the site for starters.

If it is his business he will probably need paying.

It’s well worth paying a mentor in your first year. Boy does it increase your clarity and understanding to watch a pro open and analyse a hive’s health and status.👍Interesting how much more one remembers in this situation.
