    Default Hello from Boston Metrowest (MA)

    New to the field - won't even have my bees until April 30. But I've assembled the hives, gotten most of the super-necessary gear, and taken a bee class. Even went on demos and shook bees and handled active frames. I think I'm hooked. The 20,000 bees from the 2 nucs will join 3 cats and 4 happy hens in my farm-in-the-burbs. Would like to see others' local operations, watch them handle bees, etc., to get the real lowdown on how to do these things. Also would like to know more about local threats, difficulties, diseases, responses to weather, and all that jazz.

    Hey there!

    Welcome from another Metro-West'er. I'm just outside 128. Did you take your class with John, or Rick?

    I stumbled onto the Worcester County beekeepers club and took their class. Lots of different presenters, but a nearly continuous presence of Ken Warchol, the State bee inspector. It was like having the the Encyclopedia Bee-tannica on hand for questions!

    That's a great club out there. I went to their all-day seminar last Month. Ken spoke at the Middlesex County Club last year, and he's very interesting.

    Cheers,

    There's a Middlesex County club? How did I miss that? Where does it meet? I'm in Ashland.

    It usually meets over in Carlisle during the Winter... the last indoor meeting is this Friday (it's a informal Spaghetti Dinner, and a brief talk about catching swarms).

    There are a few events coming up soon, so I've posted a copy of the most recent club newsletter here: http://www.antoniopulsone.com/postin...Newsletter.pdf

    Cheers,

    To Jim 134: Rats. I'll be in NH that day. Thanks for the heads-up though - if things change I'll try to be there.
