No no I am going to be starting next year. and I already have the basic hive but thanks.

:rofl: I have now started the beekeeping course so am into third week of it and enhjoying it and have got insurance for the bees,. So I will be getting them in may.

Fungicides are not a prob.


You say that but in large concentrations, especially if there are residues in the nectar then yes, they can be an issue.

I certainly wouldn't like to drink a pint of the stuff !

....although I sadly believe that unless one eats via organic route, it is very likely we are all ingesting the blasted stuff, and that includes our bees !

do the organic fraternity still have that drug like dependency on those old staples of copper an sulphur does anyone know?
