Hello Jacqueline,

I am a fellow bee servant. I do what is good for the bees and meets their needs. I don't smoke them to scare them into thinking their house is burning or mask alarm pheromones. I use only organic natural herbal/nutritional products to boost immunity and assist the health of the hive. I work slowly, respectfully and think of ours as an interdependent relationship. I rarely get stung and only wear a veil in short sleeves.

I look forward to reading your book and thank you in advance for bringing this consciousness to the masses. The vast majority of the beekeepers I know think of them as a commodity, taking the honey/pollen/propolis beyond what is fair. (Pollen traps damage their wings/bodies, selective breeding for low propolis when that is their antibacterial/antilfungal/antiviral spackle etc.) Using the bees for apitherapy. Raising and aborting queen larvae for the royal jelly.

For the bees,

Lee

Lee, I do believe you are on the right track. You're not following the party line and you're filled with respect for these magnificent little beings.

When you have questions, I bet you fall back to (1) observing and (2) feeling into them with your heart.

That will give you more reliable good answers. I'm glad you're taking the time to do that.

warmly,
Jacqueline
