P H,

I must think differently to you! (tongue in cheek)

Varroa is important, but there is a lot more to beekeeping than varroa. Much of what went on then (pre varroa) has not changed. Mind you, skep keeping is not so 'usual' these days!

Regards, RAB

This book appears to date from a time when the King Bee theory was favoured (no female could possibly be so influential, obviously!! although surely the memory of QE1 should have been enough to disabuse that notion....)

My comment was tongue in cheek as so many here dismiss the classics as having nothing on varroa.

Some hours spent immersed in Manley might assist more than a few.
