James Kilty is a beekeeper in West Cornwall, and a friend of mine. He belog to a "Bee improvment group" and has been attempting to breed Varroa managment into his bees. The earlier post of the Worker Bee removing the dead pupa with varroa is his bees- so his aim to create a Varroa resistant bee is on the right path.
In these photographs you can see him cleaning old frames (with an OLD bee suit on- he does not use this for his work with colonies!!!), which when ready can be used again, and another photo of him feeding his bees a sugar solution in Winter.
They were taken on large format (5x4) camera
