Was recommended that I introduce myself to the forum... SO, hello! I'm a 2nd year beekeeper. Started with 1 hive, was fortunate enough to capture the swarm when they swarmed in mid July. We had 2 hives, the original one that swarmed did not successfully raise a queen (or whatever may have happened to her), we were away, and by the time we got back, I desperately attempted to introduce a queen and was unsuccessful at that, and the hive dwindled to gone... Other hive is going strong headed into the heavy fall golden rod flow. Thanks for having me to the forum I have some questions already!!
