    Re: New Member from Wisconsin

    Welcome! This is my second year, and the more I learn about bees, the more I realize how little I know. I have a feeling that this is a lifetime adventure.

    Good luck with your hives!

    Re: New Guy from the Pacific Northwest

    You're not alone. They say that if you ask 5 beekeepers a question, you'll get 6 answers. :) I'm starting to realize that the variations are because so much of beekeeping is specific to a locale....

    Following. Glad you asked this question, Adrian. I've been wondering the same thing myself.

    Re: new in ohio

    Usually, people start with a minimum of two hives at each location because it's easier to swap resources in the event of an emergency. If you want one KTBH and one Lang, consider making the top bars...

    One other thing -- In response to the people who say Langs are best for beginners. I've heard this statement made frequently, and the primary reason it's made, I think, is because there are more...

    Re: new in ohio

    Welcome to BeeSource, Krista!

    I researched so many hives before I got my first one -- Lang, horizontal Langs, TBHs, Warres, Perones, sun hives, etc., etc. What helped me was doing a sort of...

    Re: Praying Mantis Eating One Of My Girls

    Neat. I saw a baby praying mantis on a hive last week. I left it because I thought it might keep earwigs and ants in control. After your video, though, I might rethink that decision. :)

    Re: Agressive bees or protective bees?

    Just one bee? That sounds protective to me. If you had really aggressive bees, you'd know it. There wouldn't be just one, and they'd be all over you. My bees definitely become more protective during...

    Re: 1 bar observation hive

    Hope you don't mind, but I love that idea so much I had to blog about it. Sometimes I get requests to talk about bees -- like at my daughter's preschool. I would love taking something like this in to...

    Re: Excessive Pollen

    I wouldn't fret -- your bees know what they're doing. Actually, your setup sounds really good to me. :)

    Yassas! My husband has family in Greece, and we just visited them in Athens this past summer. What a great place to have some backyard hives! It's hard to imagine where they would go, though, since I...

    Re: Thoughts on starting a bee club/group

    I think if you're interested in just trying it out for a year, I agree with Charlie B. Skip making all the paperwork and hassle of making "official" until you know whether you want to continue.

    Re: Is it necessary to get stung?

    Obviously, I wouldn't. On the other hand, I'm not completely irresponsible either. Anyone with known allergies is not allowed near the bees at all. Anyone else who visits is given a bee suit with a...

    Re: Is it necessary to get stung?

    My doctor did not prescribe it because, at the time, nobody in my family had any known allergies to beestings. If we did have allergies, he would have definitely prescribed it. However, he explained...

    Re: Shouldn't bee's make noise?!?

    Re: Is it necessary to get stung?

    I get stung about a dozen times a year, and my reaction seems to vary based on different factors. For instance, for the most part, I don't swell up too much any more, but if I get stung in just the...

    Re: New Bee with Follower Board Question

    I agree with AugustC. I like follower boards to help with straight comb and to give the bees less space to heat up. However, I wouldn't use tar paper. I probably would just continue using the...
