Looks like a great site here, already read lots of useful stuff. This will be the second year for my sister and I as beekeepers and I am very much looking forward to it and making plans to grow the flock.
We currently have one hive (we had a split too but a bear snacked on it) and I have plans to add 2 nucs this spring. I am also planning to try a swarm trap, should be interesting.
Looking forward to the experience.
