About 18 months ago, in the depths of winter, my son, Charlie who is a director/producer/cameraman came to familiarise himself with a new camera by spending the day going around some of my apiaries with me.  He has now edited/reduced about 8 hours of filming to a little over 5 minutes that you can watch via this link:      https://vimeo.com/224320377

If the link works, you’ll see me wearing rubber gloves while opening the hives.  I don’t normally wear gloves but I was taking the opportunity to give the bees their annual dose of oxalic acid to keep Varroa mite numbers down.

I have been keeping bees since 1978 and currently have about a dozen hives. I am a member of the BBKA where for many years I represented Dorset at the Annual Delegates' Meeting. I am the co-author (with Dave MacFawn of of S. Carolina) of "Getting the Best from Your Bees" and am working on a book of my own poems : "Bee People".
