    Default Newbie From Oregon

    Just installed my first package last weekend! So far so good--the queen is out of her cage and they're building out the foundation in my 10 frame deep Langstroth. Look forward to getting to know everyone!

    Hello BigDawg.

    I have been to Eugene, Oregon. Rains a lot there. Welcome to the forum.
    No one famous.

    Welcome BigDawg...now that you've got a package installed, you should consider making several bait hives (or swarm lures...same thing) and see if you can catch you some free bees. They should be just about ready to start in your area if they haven't already...Good Times!

    Grew up in Grants Pass. . I can think of no better place to beekeep than in Oregon. Wild Blackberries alone will keep the girls busy.

    Thanks everyone for your kind welcome! Yes, I think the girls will be pretty happy here--we're on 120 acres 30 mins SE of Eugene. TONS of wild blackberries (too many! lol) and the property was a commune back in the 60's so there are 50 or so fruit trees here, mostly cherry, apple, and pear. I was out yesterday walking nearby the hive and I saw lots of bees on the new apple blossoms--definitely a treat to see the girls in action!

    I looked into some plans over the weekend for building traps, and I just picked up some lemongrass oil on Friday. I'm hoping to build a few traps today and tomorrow and get the up ASAP!

    Do you have turkey’s on your place? I may need to come down and show you a couple swarm traps.
