    Default Inadvertent Beekeeper from Gloucestershire in the UK

    Greetings from sunny Ebley, a small only-slightly-rural corner of Gloucestershire. Housing developments are encroaching.....

    Lurking in a nearby field we have 10-ish full UK National hives, and six or eight nucs. Tomorrow this will probably be different, queens being what they are.

    I didn't mean to be a beekeeper - it's my wife's fault. Five years ago she asked for a hive for her birthday, and now the bug has us both.

    I'm an electrical/control/process engineer by profession, please feel free to ask any questions in that kind of territory - I'll do what I can to answer them.

    Have a good day!

    Castor

    Hello Castor, welcome to the forum from Ohio U.S.A.. Glad you joined us.

    I am a first year beekeeper and have fallen in love with it already.

    Hey Castor,
    Welcome from the southern Appalachians! It's great that you are loving beekeeping. I'm 44 now, but I wish I had found this passion twenty years sooner.

    Welcome: once that door is opened, it can never truly be closed again.

    Thank you for all the kind greetings - I think all of us would have a huge void in life without those d**n bees!
