I am so happy to have found this resource and I very much appreciate the members vast knowledge and patience in the threads and posts I have read so far. Thank you for providing this forum and especially thank you to all of the experienced beekeepers here that are offering their valuable advice and mentoring!
I have been learning the basics and working my two hive apiary for two years now with the hope of expanding my hobby into a retirement avocation within the next few years. I would like to learn how to operate my apiary using organic techniques and natural management methods. Currently keeping Carniolan line but looking to introduce Russian line into my beeyard but not decided if this should be a hybrid or pure Russian?
