Well I have been round the sun 50 times and to get good at anything you must repeat the same thing at least 10,000 times. Brain and muscle memory. Hence martial arts etc. Reparation. So any body doing Bee keeping even after 20- 30 yrs is still learning and will make mistakes. Hence my comment new to the game. On a side note to this I have brought a hive from a member on this forum and being in my first year of Bee keeping was as blind as a new born baby as to what was good and whats bad. And on hind sight what they sold me was rubbish because I have expanded my hive numbers and with my limited experience sort of know now what a good hive is.
let him who is without sin cast the first stone.
This is a good forum with many different views and opinions and sometimes we are all guilty of being keyboard warriors, and can interpret postings incorrectly. Many times things are written with passion, and I am guilty a viewing others postings in a negative light, and thankful the next day I re read and think Phew I am glad I did'nt post what I was thinking that day. Our one common denominator is we all love Bee's.
Bee happy every one, life is short.
