    Default Greetings from South Central Kansas

    Starting 2 hives this spring. Just beginning bee keeping but my husband has been a long time bee keeper. He lost all his hives many, many years ago when Varroa first hit, then tried to get back into bees a few years ago with 4 nucs but lost them as well. So he didn't really want to try bees again, but I miss having them and miss the wonderful honey so thought I would give it a go myself. Hope all goes well. I'm really looking forward to the experience!!

    Thanks for the welcome. Nice web site. Just wondering if you use any screened bottom boards up your way?

    I'm new here also, without the experienced husband. In fact, mine was against my beekeeping. Guess he changed his mind because "Santa" brought me a lovely starter kit.

    Last night I attended my first beekeeping class.

    There is so much to learn!

    Nice to meet you, KsMilkMaid. I'm Tina, from Connecticut

    Sounds like you have a pretty nice guy and know how to keep him that way. I have always believed in trying to never take too much of the bees winter honey but knowing so little what that really means I usually take nothing the first year, I am sure if you ask others can help you in many areas of beekeeping.

    Hello and thanks for the warm welcome. Yes, there is a lot to learn. One minute I think I've got it down pretty good, the next I'm doubting myself. Can't wait to get the bees in - they are supposed to come May 5. Seems like such a long time, but have lots to do till then. Any tips could be appreciated, Tina, and good luck to you.

    Keep trying and I am most confident you will succeed. Maybe ask him for help ocassionally and I'll bet he'll once more be interested even though he seemed to really have bad luck. I just hope my one one queen and bees keep doing as well as I am guessing they are from watching them get pollen almost part of every day here in Las Vegas. It sure isn't like in Montana where I wondered for months if they really were doing O.K. and had enough honey to do well.

    Thanks for the welcome samoadc! You know you are right. He IS starting to get excited too with me telling him about all the new this and that. I have confidence he will come around - he enjoyed it toooo much! He has already told me that he will carry my supers for me. Now how can you not love a guy like that?!?!?!
