The last Wednesday of the month, at this time of year, is the winter meeting for Leeds beekeepers at the Newman Centre, Cross Gates. This week we had the delight of Jim Pearson. Jim is a Master Beekeeper and came to speak to us about what he believes to be the Myths, Legends and Lies surround beekeeping. The talk, and the following question and answer session were fantastic. It covered diverse topics such as apideas, extreme polyandry, deformed wing virus, Italian bees, black bees and virgin queens. It catered for new beekeepers and beekeepers of many years.
A great talk by Jim indeed.
