    Default Hello from Northern California

    Hello fellow bee aficionados,

    I am a commercial beekeeper up in the Sacramento Valley. I run approximately 8,000 colonies (depending on the season). I look forward to interacting and sharing colony management and care practices with other knowledgeable individuals.

    During my tenure as a beekeeper, one of the main blocks in beekeeping progress is the reluctance of sharing information due to the fear of being judged on the issues we are observing in our hives. This lack of communication has led to an unnecessary amount of hive deaths and spread of disease.

    The development of these forums seems to be a great way to circumvent these insecurities and open a clear path for all to share no matter how off-based some conclusions/practices may seem.

    Thanks in advance, and I look forward to participating in your discussions.
