Hello group. I have great interest in information, discussion and news about beekeeping (as a hobby) in the Houston Metro area. Looking forward to reading about your beekeeping.
julysun - kfricker here in south Florida joined your group. Have unexpectedly caught a few swarms in an old plant pot turned upside-down and passed them along to a local rescue keeper down here. What kind of hives to you use in so tx? I plan on keeping the next swarm and was looking at a Warre (usual question screen bottom or not) or a KTBH. Not sure I want to micromanage so the Warre looks good. Your thoughts from hot and humid Houston would be great.
Hello SETX Group - Down here in Brazoria, 12 miles from the Gulf Coast. This year I am noticing vast blooms of yellow flowers in the old prairie areas = like outside of Bayou Bend State Park. Not so rich in my immediate surroundings, just goldenrod. I have not had my plant books with me when driving around, so I don't know what they are.
