Hi,
I am a new beekeeper (6 weeks) living in France. I am taking lessons but due to the distance and short notice can't always attend. I would really like to contact someone who doesn't mind me phoning or e-mailing them (hopefully only occasionally) when I am out of my depth.

For always someone there advice, this forum is pretty hot :). Trouble with 1-to-1 is that during the season beekeepers can be extremely busy and often juggling jobs too.

When you post give as much info as possible about your situation...then the initial replies are much more likely to be spot on.

Good luck :).

Enough
I am always willing to help if I can and if I don't have an answer, I will find somebody who can. Try me with personal memo's. The problem with these forums is that, if you ask a question, you will get 50 answers thrown in with other innuendo of no relevance. The best advice you will get will surely be local?

None, although I have my eye on one ( Just don't tell Dusty ;) )
Take pics and post if you are not sure. ( My sneaky way of getting more people to post albums lol )
