For most beekeepers, it is.   Think of it like this:  If it saves one hive so you don't need to replace your bees next year, it will pay for itself.   Or if it helps you split a hive successfully so you dont have to buy bees next year, it will also pay for itself. 

Yes!  I personally reply to every email, text or video chat with complete answers. 

1-3 years.   Getting through your first winters, swarms seasons, and honey extractions will help you greatly. 

No, absolutely not.   If you are not local, we will have to work more via video and video chat.   The Marco Polo app is best for communicating by video. 

No.   Bees will do what bees will do. 

Swarms, absconding, and weak colonies not surviving are a part of every beekeeper's journey.      

But we can concentrate on things to reduce the likelihood of losing bees.   

But it's never a guarantee.   I wish it were.
