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!
