Hello. Found this forum through Google. Gotta love the internet - don't know what folks did before it...
At any rate, new beekeeping interest here. Hooked up with local clubs in Virginia, will be taking lessons in January, and expect to start next April.
-Definately interested in the organic route here. the fewer chemicals needed the better, in my opinion.
-I'm also into technology and gadgets, so I'm actively reading up on things that make the beekeepers job simpler. I will definately be doing no or small-comb in the brood chambers, and looking into ventilation (beecool ventilators) devices, doing medium 8 frame standardization, etc.
Take care, i look forward to reading up on the information and knowledge this forum has to share!
