    Default 1st month - in Pittsburgh PA

    Hi All

    I am a new to bees, installed my first colony on May 4 '09 from a package. My second colony went in on May 22th from a swarm I captured.

    Beekeeping was an interest of mine when I was in high school (A long time ago) but up until now I did not have a place were I could have bees. I currently have the two hives with room to expand to 4.

    I am keeping a web blog and photo gallery on my experiance with the bees.

    Bill,
    Welcome, it is good to have another Pittsburgher on the forum. Checked out your blog and it looks like you are starting off on the right foot with your bees. Good luck in the upcomming season.

    Hi Bill,
    Welcome and best wishes. I too am new and started two packages this spring, and caught two swarms. In fact, I think I sat next to you and Cathy at the Beaver Area Beekeepers club. I am about 10 miles south of pittsburgh in Bethel Park and if there is anything I can help with, I would be happy to do so.Good luck. Great site

    Default new to beekeeping in Pittsburgh area-looking for swarm

    Hi,
    My name is Carrie, from Monroeville. I have ordered two top bar hives and am having trouble finding bees this time of the year. If anyone hears of any swarms for sale, please let me know. I will have my hives next week.
    Are there any top bar hive beekeepers in the area?
    I work every weekend, yes every weekend, and I can't go out on the weekends to look at a hive. I would appreciate anyone in the area that could show me a hive or two during the week, Lang or top bar!!!!
    Can't wait to get started,
    Carrie

    At least, Carrie, if you have days off through the week, you'll be able to get swarms when others can't
