    Default Hi from Cape Town South Africa

    Hi all

    I'm new to beekeeping, have read a lot in books and on the internet.

    I'm attending an introductory coarse on beekeeping on the 5th and 6th of Feb. In the meantime I trying to build my own hives from the plans on the site.

    Regards,
    Steven

    PS. Are there any other South Africans on this forum especially ones from Cape Town?

    Hello and Welcome!

    Glad to have you with us. I've heard Rob Mountain - a South African who has since moved to the United States - speak on the different bees in South Africa, and differences in beekeeping. Interesting stuff! He's a member of this forum, but hasn't posted in about 6 months.

    Howdy, ZAHives! I am currently reading a book about a man who operated out of Capetown back at the turn of the century.....not a beeker, though -- afraid he was a "bad guy"! I'd be interested to learn about the differences in bee strains and hive management in your part of the world. Should be interesting!
