Hi everyone. new to the forum but have been keeping bees for about the last 4 years. The ups (first year in i got a honey harvest, learn something new all the time) The downs (lost every hive since then and some stings) But I keep doing it. I am part of my local bee club and they are pretty helpful. I love the ideas the give me and advise, but there can always be other opions so i joined this lovely forum. thanks.
