    Default Propective Bee Keeping

    Let me take a moment to introduce myself. I have no experience with bee keeping. I have some property in the High Desert of California and was thinking of having some bee hives on it once I retire. So I will do my research and be asking lots of questions. For now I still in the LA area and go out the high desert ever chance I get.

    Welcome Steve! I hope to be working bees well into my retirement as well. When you do your research be sure to check into lighter beekeeping equipment (8 frame instead of 10, and medium boxes instead of deep). My older beekeeping friends all swear by it, and I'm starting to notice the difference as well.

    Hi Steve,
    Welcome to the High Desert. Beekeeping in the High desert of SoCal is a great hobby! I think it may take a little more effort to keep bees in the High Desert rather than the Los Angeles Basin. You'll love it!

    Howdy Osteve,

    You're not alone in the high desert i.e. Antelope Valley. I've been up here for about 20 years.

    I've seen a few bees and am looking to start a couple of hives myself, next year. Hopefully we can bolster their numbers in our neck of the woods (or lack thereof lol). And have alittle fun to boot.

    I'm hoping that bees are viable in the desert. Still in the reading phase/study phase before I kill anything.

    Welcome to the desert, keep a hat handy.
