Re: New to beekeeping..some suggetions please
I started May 09. lost my first two hive from ignorance. I have two from eight in 2010, 150+ lbs of honey from 4 hives, nothin to write home about but I'm learning.
I read this forum EVERDAY! Joined an assocation & found some local beeks.
It will absolutely SUCK if your bees die or swarm, so study hard & GO FOR IT!
Timing is a big part of the equation. Have enough equipment & know when to use it.
From the day I wintered them till now I have consumed several books & logged many hours @ this forum, & I still know NOTHING except I LOVE THIS & I AIN'T QUITT'N! I was thrilled to say the least that I found live bees in boxes waitin ta bust out here real soon. GOOD LUCK
