    Default Hello From Westchester Co. N.Y.

    Started beekeeping this past July with 2 hives. I was going to start this year when I retire but the opportunity presented itself so I took it. I started the hives because as a kid I remembered so many bees on the boxwood hedges by the apartment house I lived in. When I looked around where I live now I couldn't find one honey bee,and it bothered me a lot. So read all that I could and found a beekeeper in my area who had 2 Nucs for sale and got started. I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would and now a couple of friends are asking about it.
    It's nice to have a forum like this to steer us new to beekeeping in the right direction. Thanks. CraigNY

    Welcome CraigNY.
    You'll find lots of good information here as well as some keeps from near your location. Pay particular attention to those local keeps (north east) as their advice will become very helpful down the road. Enjoy your bees!

    Hi Ttankofish, so far so good. I checked the hives the last warm spell and one hive was packed with bees the other, half as much. It looks like they both have a lot of honey in the top frames. I'll check again when the next warm spell hits . Thanks for asking!

    Hi Cloverdale, I'll post updates as I go. I'm sure that there's a lot of clubs around here. I just have to look around when I slow down a bit. Thanks!

    Hi BeeCurious, Thank you. When you say bee sites do you mean that you keep your bees on someone else's property?
