My name is Steven Tervort. I started The SurvivorBees website as an online archive of information and a journal of my experiences as a Beekeeper. I created this site because I want to help as many people as I can get started in beekeeping. Some of my best mentors don’t even know they mentored me. The sites, videos and books that I have read throughout my adventure have been a tremendous help to me.
When I first started beekeeping I kept a small journal of my experiences in a spiral bound notebook. In this notebook I wrote down everything that I did in the bee yard. Unfortunately–I lost the notebook, along with all of my experiences, successes and failures documented within. All of the details of what I had done are gone forever.
Instead of buying a new notebook, I decided I would create a website to document what I do with my bees. Now, my journal is online and available for everyone to see. I hope that it is as much a help to you as it is to me.
