Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of this forum. This looks like a great place for advice.
I worked with my Dad on and off for years as well as with a couple of commercial beekeepers for a couple of summers.
Also have taken a university level semester course on beekeeping.
I'm starting to keep bees on my own now for the first time and I realize I have probably forgotten more than I ever learned......
This site will be a great help.
