Here's what others are saying:
".....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
"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
"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
