    Hello....
    there are huge differences on beekeeping between countries.
    I've known little about the system in US.
    Where should I begin ?

    ... and what can you teach us?

    Michael Bush has a great website in general and for the treatment free crowd.

    Thanks for the answers,
    The major difference, for example, is in winterizing.
    You winterize the colonies in a deep (for brood), and another deep or super above (for honey stores).
    In Turkey, we winterize in a single deep. (up to max 8 frames) .
    Brood and honey stores are both on the same frame.

    Most of them use commercial, and a few started using organic acids for varroa.

    Antibiotics is not permitted , but lots of people use for brood problems.

    There are beekeepers here that use 8 frame boxes although 10 frame I think is still the standard.

    Welcome Cemo! Differences are not due to national boundaries or even cultures, but climate and opinions. I winter in one medium (Illinois) super and occasionally two mediums.

    Welcome Cemoka! I agree with AmericaBeekeepers that it's climate and opinions that will drive the differences ... and probably some government regulations thrown in for fun. That said, please tell us how you do things and please include some pictures, as well!
    btw - i've visited your beautiful country and would go back in an instant. what history, scenery, food, and warm people!
