".....he's saved me a couple of times! It's worth it to have someone to ask questions when there's conflicting info about how to deal with (bee) problems. David is knowledgeable and there when I need answers quickly. Thanks David!" Kathy, Illinois
"As a first year beekeeper the single most important thing I did besides take one of David's beginner beekeeping classes and read as many books as i could was to Join beeteam6. Having a master beekeeper only a phone call away was extremely helpful when experiencing things for the first time as a new beekeeper. David has been so helpful, patient and still pushes me to keep learning for myself as I continue to grow as a beekeeper with the support of beeteam6!!! Thanks Beeteam6!" Todd H., Danville, Il

Making Spring Splits Includes Making A 5 Frame Nuc
Let's Get To Work!
Having a 5 frame nuc to support your hive is a great help. This spring, you can take a few frames of brood and resources from a strong, overwintered colony and build up a 5 frame nuc. Use it to have resources to share with your large colony later in the season if needed. For example, if you lose your queen in your strong hive and they fail to replace her, just use the queen from your 5 frame support colony. Or if you need an extra frame of honey or capped brood to strengthen your hive, grab some from your 5 frame support nuc. Plus, this is a fun size to open and show relatives without having to open up a large hive. Order one today. Bees NOT included.
A limited Number Of Spots Are Available
Spring is going to bring lots of beekeeping questions to your mind. Why not have David to turn to for all your spring questions? David's Beekeeping Coaching program is known as Beeteam6.
"I have found Bee Team 6 to be very beneficial, your "coaching" has been a big help to me and my little family. It has really brought the stress level way down for me. I'm a retired ARMY Veteran, and stress has been a big issue. You, Bee Team 6 and Beekeeping has played a "Huge" role, being therapy for me and helping to keep my mind occupied with something positive. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you and your family for helping with that." William, Maine
