    Default Hi I am Buck from SC

    I have been around bees (my brothers) for around 30 years. I purchased four packages a year ago for myself and now have 9 hives. My plans are to expand to 20 this year, with 10 packages scheduled for delivery next month. My other hobbies include vinyl signs, but it looks like woodworking will be the next!
    It seems SHB are the biggest pest to be dealt with in lower SC.

    Hi Buck, welcome from the west coast.
    Sorry to disappoint you but Varroa mites will be you're #1 enemy, SHB probably #2 keep the hives heavily populated.

    Lower SC, draw a line between Beaufort, SC and Augusta, GA and we are about half way.

    Welcome to the site Buck! I know where Hampton is! All you had to do was tell them it is the watermelon capital of the world! Well.....one of them anyway. lol My wife is from Olar and I'm from Williston. She still has relatives in Denmark and Bamberg. Good luck with the bees this year. I am getting my first 4 packages in 2 weeks.

    Great! Are you a member of the Edisto Beekeepers? We have a meeting in Orangeburg either this week or next week. Great group with a lot of usable experience.
