    Default Hello from Clayton, NC

    Hi - This is Betsy.
    My husband and I are 3 year beekeepers with 4 standard hives looking to get up to a dozen - maybe.
    We started by taking our county extension beekeeping course and becoming "Certified Beekeepers" in the NC Master Beekeeper Program.
    Now we are settling in a bit with our bees.
    We enjoy having good Mentors in the area, but aren't able to get to beekeeper meetings as often as we would like and hate to "BUG" the same people with our questions all the time.
    Hope to expand our Mentor Group with this Forum.

    Experience is teaching us more every day.
    Top interests right now are: different methods of making splits, hiving swarms effectively (getting a swarm to survive), learning to produce our own queens.

    I am sometimes - no often - confused by conflicting info and trying to find our comfortable spot in the spectrum of beekeeping methodologies.

    THIS IS THE FIRST INTERNET FORUM OF ANY KIND I HAVE EVER JOINED, SO I AM NOT SO "TECH-SMART" ABOUT THIS TYPE OF INTERACTION.
    PLEASE BE PATIENT AND HELP ME WITH PROPER FORUM PROCEDURES AND "MANNERS".

    Thanks,
    Betsy

    Welcome Betsy!

    Check out the FAQ link at the top left of every page in the gray header bar. That will explain all the functionality of the forum. Also see the forum rules/guidelines. That should keep you heading in the right direction! Experience will teach you the rest!
    Regards, Barry
