    Default Hello from Thailand

    Hello. I'm a newbie I'm from Chiang Mai, Thailand.
    I just got a bee hive from my uncle 10 days ago. He gave me a Taiwanese style hive. There're 3 comb but no queen

    I took a beekeeper class in March and I'm interested being a beekeeper. I don't have field experience yet.
    I hope I could discussed and share the experience with you guys here

    Welcome and enjoy your stay! I have a friend on another forum that lives there, too. He has a weather station and web site.

    I think you have a lot of different kinds of honey bees there. Cerana, florea and dorsata are probably most of them. Mellifera are quite different in many ways.

    My uncle told me mostly we(in asia) have Italian bees.

    I have Taiwanese style hive. I wanted to have top bar hive but not sure if it would be good since the weather here is different from Western country and the humid as well.
    So, for now I guess I'll stick with the Taiwanese style. Maybe If I have more bees I'll try TBH

    Hi Elle, we were in Chiang Mai late last year, very nice part of the world and would love to get back there again, we were amazed at the huge numbers of very small bees on all the flower bushes. Not at all like the bees back home in NZ probably only half the size of our bees.
