I Love Helping Beekeepers

Hello BeekSquad!

Let me guess, some of you have been at this beekeeping thing for quite some time and you aren't getting the results that you were hoping for?

Maybe you were wanting to see more honey production or better winter survival.

To the best of your understanding, you've been doing what should work, but you're pulling your hair out in frustration. I started beekeeping almost 30 years ago, so rest assured whatever frustration you are feeling, I've felt it too.

To be a good beekeeper it takes time, energy, money, and sheer grit! If beekeeping were easy, everyone would be doing it. Most successful beekeepers didn't become good at it alone. They learned from others. When we surround ourselves with the right people who can help us develop our beekeeping skills, success comes faster.

Unfortunately, many beekeepers go it alone. I started out that way too, and it was tough and I kept failing. I didn't know up from down about bees when I first started. It was ugly.

It is believed that 80% of new beekeepers quit during their first year. Of the 20% that are left, 80% of those quit by year 4. That's alarming. It's a fact, those with solid mentors hang in there a lot longer and do better.

I'm passionate about helping beekeepers make fewer mistakes and keep healthier bees. I often say in my YouTube videos, "I'm working hard for you!"

Here's a summary of my efforts to help you:

  1. 3+ YouTube videos a week.
  2. Weekly Livestream Q&A
  3. Response to Many Questions on YouTube
  4. Speak at Clubs and Conferences
  5. Monthly Columnist in Bee Culture Magazine

In addition to these, I also offer a much more in-depth mentorship program, over the last 8 years, known as BeeTeam6. Hundreds of beekeepers have benefited from this mentorship program. I have been tweaking this program every year, and finally this year we have launched a new approach to BeeTeam6 which will better fit the needs of the beekeeper.

This will also allow us to overcome the problem of this program being full all the time with no vacancies. Please take some time and review this mentorship program to see if there is a tier that fits your need to benefit from me mentoring you in beekeeping. I am an E.A.S Certified Master Beekeeper (2010) with decades of beekeeping experience. I hope I can work with you. Here's the link: CLICK HERE
