Have you done a course on AI?

If so could you post some details, please? Swienty seem to do the kit but I couldn't comment on price, etc, as I don't know enough about it.

Cheers

When I spoke with Hivemaker on the phone a few years ago he said at the time he was looking into getting all the kit so he may be able to help you with some advice.

There are AI courses that used to be held in Germany, now whether they still are is another matter but that was the only place that I have ever heard of having them.

You could contact the national bee unit: they sent their apiary manager to a course fairly recently (i.e. the last couple of years). I think it was in Europe somewhere, for some reason I am thinking Poland, but don't quote me on that (in English or Polish!)

I used the Latshaw micro this year which is quite cheap and the results were good.
