Hey everybody, just wanted to say "Hi" from Western Oregon. I've always wanted to have a couple hives, and last week at my dads house, we discovered a hive in one of his apple trees. I went down and bought Beekeeping for Dummies and read it cover to cover to see if it would be something I would be interested in. I'M HOOKED!! I captured that hive and it is in it's new home with a full feeder sitting on it as we speak. I'm a trapper, and have access to about 1500 acres of ranchland, so this seems like a natural fit for me.
