    Default New member organic, with 2yrs experience 4 hives

    Hello my name is Rachael and I've been a beekeeper for two years now. When my neighbor discovered he had a fatal allergies to bee stings, I started helping him with his hives to keep an eye on him. Then I ended up with a split and now four hives. I am using only organic methods and am looking forward to learning from this forum as well as contributing any observations that I have made. I live in NW Washington State.

    Thank you all for being here.
    Rachael

    Thanks you all for the sweet and warm welcome. I've also lived on the East Coast and glad that I'm transplanted here now. Also, good to find somebody up the road that's also into beekeeping I've already enjoyed reading so many posts and learned quite a bit. I'm really happy to find this forum. Looking forward to being involved member.
    Many Thanks,
    Rachael

    Oh, yes. He won't give him up. He is taking immunization shots and this is the second year and he's been stung a few times but it's working. He says he could get stung in the middle of the city so he's living his life and doing what he enjoys.
