In beekeeping I'm a newcomer! I started only after I got my 1st Flow Hive. My mentor is in the beekeeping business for more than 20 years or so. He has more than 400 hives. Although my ideas are a litle far from his, the basic is there. I am a fan for "Treatment-Free Beekeepers" guidelines. This isn't my full time job, but I'm loving all the experience. I'll appreciate all the help I can get! Greetings from Portugal.
