I managed to track down a copy of "keeping your own bees" by Norman redpath.

His shop that started in the 60s is just up the road and today run by his sons. I get my gear from there and Gordon was very helpful and encouraging.

Its written for Aussie conditions, especially my local ones. Its gotta be a blessing to have a bee book written by someone just up the road from you. Already I feel better knowing my bees are going to be able to forage just about all year round and bring back nectar and pollen thanks to the Eucalypys . I knew it but I just had to read it to confinrm my belief if you know what I mean.

The principles are the same, but our warm climate makes most books from the US and UK have big chunks of what is to us useless data.

Hey mick,

I haven't seen that book before. Looks alright, can you tell me a bit about it? There is another book that was published in victoria around 1991 I think. Its called "beekeeping" and was published by whatever the forestry department was called then. Its well worth it if you can find it.

Have fun Wink.

Careful, my pets can smell your hives. Cool
