Parker Bees

$290 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 6 people in 19 months

Hi, my name is Solomon.  I am a beekeeper, but more than just keep bees as a business or hobby, I'm an educator.  I travel around giving talks and answering questions to support new beekeepers in their effort to get started and in support of the bees who aren't in the greatest of conditions right now.  Maybe you've heard about that.

I do a lot of work in educating beekeepers, but I don't get paid for most of it.  I do have supporters of my podcast and I love them, but I have had a bunch of people tell me that they want to support my work with one time gifts and not on a per episode basis as with the podcast.

I am working on a book and like everything I do, it is educational.  I hope it becomes THE beekeeping manual for treatment-free beekeeping generations to come.

I am not the sort of person to ask for money, nor am I good at it, as you can see.  But if you have benefitted from my work, please contribute.  If you support education, or small businesses, or the work of saving the bees, I am all of these.

The only thing I have to offer you right now is a signed copy of my book when it comes out as my thanks for your generous support.  You'll be first on the list and I will address it to you personally.  Actually, you already have access to all my work, podcast, website, Facebook group, videos, it's all yours.  I offer it to you for free.  I ask you to choose to support this work, as I support the work of other creators who are doing outstanding things in this world.

Hey all,

I guess I messed up and didn't set up payment withdrawals, so this campaign has been shuttered this whole time.

Fear not, it's still here. And I still get one time donations to support my work, but I've been taking them through PayPal, with whom my relationship has been strained at times.

Thank you for your support, here's a picture for you. It's an experiment I did to see to what proportions mites infest brood, drone versus worker. At the bottom is the uninfested drone, and to the left is the uninfested worker. To the right is the infested drone, and top small pile is the infested worker. I found that about one in four drone cells were infested, but one in 17 worker cells were infested. And none of the ones in worker cells were reproductive. This is good news. That means that most of the infestation is happening in the drone brood, and drones are much more able to be sacrificed than the workers.

Thanks for your support,
Solomon

Solo I would like to get your book when it is published, but what will be the cost of it? Just want to ensure my donation is sufficient.

I can't tell you how much help I have derived from your Facebook group, podcasts, and videos. Thank you. I would give more if I could afford it right now. There are so many that have benefited from the information you provide for free, and I wish they would all give just $10 or $20 to help you to continue to help us.
