    Default Hey from New Zealand

    As you may already know we have alot of bees here so it's of no surprise there is another kiwi here to join this massive group of people.

    I'm 31 and just discovered what I really want to do in life, bees! My long term goal is to give commercial bee breeding a try. Currently I have 17 hives that I started from only 3 hives 4 months ago, mostly italians, a few carniolan/italian crosses and one near pure carniolan hive, still not sure which performs better in our local environment, however after a few seasons and a large sample group I should have some idea.

    As the nickname suggest, I want to take a real scientific approach to beekeeping and another dream of mine is one day to finish my degree and move on to doing a phd in bee genetics.

    Hope all is well with everyone here.

    Seeya around.

    NZ is an amazing place. Beautiful land. Enjoy your bees.

    If I ever get the chance to take another trip there, Oldtimer gets a free strong back in the bee yard for a day.

    Yes it is, we are very lucky really, not too much to worry about apart from our silly government and lack of care for our environment.

    I'd join you on helping Oldtimer, I'd love to pick his brain with a question or a million.
