    Default Hey there you guys! I am from Columbia, SC!

    My screen name is Redbug because I am out in the woods a lot. And guess what...the redbugs don't bother me anymore.

    Anyways, I am Dave and just getting into the hobby. I had a couple hives about 30 years ago, so I am learning all over again. Times have certainly changed. And I just retired about a month ago! I now have time to do all those things I wanted but did not have the time for! I have 3 pounds of bees/queen on order right now and already have my starter setup from Dante. A good friend of mine is also starting out and we will be hiving together at his farm. Ain't life great!

    Hey there Phillip!

    I plan to try and make it. I went to the Midstate Beekeepers Assn meeting last Tuesday. That was my first time. That's where I am getting my bees from.

    I have been noticing down here the red maples are starting to show bits of red. A few more days of warm weather and they will be popping out. That's mainly along the Congaree River and low areas.

    Hi Bees of SC...I live over by Pine Ridge. But I am down your way quite often. Usually at least once a week or more often. I hunt along the Congaree/Park area and have been in Kingville HC for more than 20 years. A couple of my friends have some hives there, also. Thought about that, too. My friend's farm is on the other side of the river near St Matthews. It's a small world...

    Welcome Dave, Seems to always be a great bunch of people around beekeeping.
    I'm not tense, Just terribly, terribly alert!
