Hi. My name is Heidi and I live near Buffalo & Rochester NY=WNY area. My brother & I started beekeeping this spring and we are thoroughly enjoying it. There are however, many obstacles I did not expect. One of our hives seems honeybound, another was queenless, beetles in one, mouse in one........We've managed to muddle our way thru the muddy waters, but am looking for any advice from experienced beekeepers. Winter is coming fast and we are not sure how to prepare.
