    Default Howdy! New to beekeeping in N.E. Texas

    Hello everyone! I've had bees continuously for about a year. I say "continuously" because I had a colony pick up and leave and then
    another colony move in either several weeks or a month later (approximating time). I have been very hands-off except for feeding (bad drought this year) but would love to learn how to be a real beekeeper.

    Hi and welcome
    All beekeepers can agree on one thing, and that one thing is, that all beekeepers can't agree on one thing.

    Welcome Molly! There are some really smart beekeepers on here. One day I hope to be one of them, but for now I just keep coming back.

    When you can't get a plant to grow, they call it black thumb disease. What is it when your bees get robbed out, etc?
    Time to be a gypsy again, 2014 will be my prep year, my bees want a better area with actual rainfall.

    Welcome to the forum. You'll find such a great wealth of knowledge and advice here. Btw, if you have bees you're a real beekeeper.
