Just completed another course this afternoon, and have 4 new beeks in the offing for next spring. One has bought a beehaus, the others are undecided as yet.

Ages range 15-50. one interested in beekeeping for bees (ie, pollination, micro biology) the other for honey for his B&B.

I'll run one off now. I can think of three types mind you.

Complete Novice, open to all new ideas however wacky and buys all the kit he/she can see

Master Craftsman - I believe beekeepers are born, you can't learn this ancient craft in anything less than 40 years

Jack of all - master of none, especially the bees !

It's new beekeepers that are important not the latest gimmick :).
