    Re: Should a new beek start with langs?

    I don't think either TBHs or Langs are better than the other. They are both have different pros and cons, so I would weigh which factors are most important to you, and then pick a hive based on that....

    Re: It Looks Like Bees Love Rosemary!

    Yes, they do love rosemary! My husband just brought back an organic monofloral rosemary honey from Portugal recently. Very interesting flavor.

    Re: New to Forum from NE Indiana

    Welcome, Mtforge! What a bummer about your bees. I'm considering this my first winter with KTBHs (last year, a bear got my bees in Nov, so I don't think that counts), and I'm curious about what...

    Re: Newbee in Marin County, CA

    I started last year and lost my first hive, too. It was such a bummer, but I started over again this year, and I'm so glad I did.

    I hope your loss will not deter you and that you'll have better...

    Re: Accidental Bee Keeper

    Welcome to BeeSource. Sounds like you're definitely a beekeeper. There is an upside to getting sucked in, though. As an herbalist, you'll appreciate the medicinal qualities of raw honey, which has...

    Welcome to BeeSource. A friend just went to Slovenia and wrote about visiting a beekeeping museum there. http://buddhaandthebees.net/blog/2014/10/18/slovenian-bee-geeking/ It sounded just wonderful....

    Re: Questions re: dwindling hive

    I split my bees in July, and I've never seen mites either. I'm sure they're in there, but I simply haven't seen them. I know what they look like, and I actively looked for them... they're just not...

    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....

    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...

    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...
