    Default Hello from Illinois

    Hi Beeks, I have been keeping bees now for about six years,going from 10 to my present number of 4 hives and 2 nucs.Them super are just getting to heavy for my bones. I have dabbled some, with raising queens,but nothing serious. All my hives have queens from my yard and have been raised from overwintered stock. I'm very glad to be here as there is always something to learn.

    Welcome RichieV! It really is not that hard to raise queens correctly.

    Welcome, been thinking about the weight of the boxes also, might go to all meds in the future , but for now , probably just glue in some 1 inch pink foam in spot 1 and 10. That should cut my frame weight by 20%
    I'm not tense, Just terribly, terribly alert!
