Re: New guy from KY
Welcome CynCityBee. I am also pretty new to the forum, which is a great resource! An almost overwhelming amount of education!
I am just up the road from you outside of Crittenden, and have bought/am building homes for the bees I plan buy in the spring.
Here is an invite for you and you f-i-l to join us at the Kentucky Backyard Beekeepers club, which meets in Williamstown, and the extension office the second monday of every month, 7PM. A good mix of experienced patient beeks and us new-bees.
I'm not as good as I once was...
