I think we had already figured that out, but have so far not heard (from any source) why,,,I am a firm believer (from hard and expensive experience) as no doubt you have read, that bees in gardens are in general a bad idea
No need to say sorry as far as I am concerned, everyone has the right to their opinion and truth be told thankfully we don't always agree or excellent forums like this won't exist for open debate.(edited)I apologise to mikea if I have mis-understood his post
I don't think any insult to newbees was intended here. We were all newbees once and many of us got a lot of support from people on here when we were and still do.but that doesn't mean I am ignorant of the risks, unwilling to learn or plain stupid. Some newbees may be but as mentioned earlier if we are here that says something but please don't coat us all with the same brush.
