    Default Hi From NW Montana

    John Here 3 rd years 5 hives One in town a captured swarm being left to fend for itself <experiment> in a box at a friends house.

    4 other hives at home
    1 2 year overwinterer hoping for a 3rd. Swarm capture
    3 new groups going into first winter from pacakages
    1 colony fled the coop after a winter
    lost another colony to perhaps being a bozo and spilling feed on them in a montana "spring"
    so i have both good and bad experiences but not ready to teach always learning

    I'm down from you in Manhattan, Montana quite a bit during summer
    have a great time experimenting, I think I get the most enjoyment out of that now.

    Great site, wonderful people, and the information is endless.
    Every year I spend time in Polson at Western Bee.
    For all of you near a Murdochs Home and Ranch, they will carry beekeeping supplies and wooden ware after Dec 1 this year. A little competition for WB.
