    Default Hello From N Calif-SF Bay Area

    Hello,

    I live half way between San Francisco and San Jose. I am just getting started as a beekeeper, and have ordered my first package of bees - Italians. We had a hive from an experience beekeeper who maintained it for the first year, and last year it was left on its own, and the bees swarmed away. I have had the hive checked out by an experienced beekeeper, and he says it is in good shape to use for the package of bees that I have ordered.

    I found this forum through my local bee guild, and it is a welcome find. Looking forward to learning form the experienced members on this forum. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    Dan,
    Thank you for the invite, and it is not too far out of the way - I will see if my husband and I can make the next one. We are very excited about this new endeavor of ours.
