    Default Thanks from a new member.

    Greetings from upstate New York!
    I've been a lurker for a year now. I started in the spring of 2019 with 3 nucs and now I'm at six hives as of today. Just wanted to thank everyone who shares their knowledge and wisdom for the benefit of all. I hope to someday be able to give back when I become proficient at keeping bees. Most farming endeavors abide by the 10,000 hour rule. Takes that many hours to get a level of experience to be a good steward for one's animals. Thanks again!

    That's like 4 years of 40 hour weeks I don't think it's that hard, just remember everything you've read.

    And keep in mind that at least half of it is wrong. Takes 10,000 hours to figure which is which.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    Wecome to Beesource. From one novice to another, I sincerely wish you all the best of success with your apiary efforts.

    The wonderful thing about bees (at least as I see it), is that the more you learn, the less you come to realize you know- so there is always something to learn!

    FWIW, I have found everyone on here to be most helpful and patient, so don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Good luck this year, and please do keep us posted on your progress.

    I appreciate the warm welcoming. I've been ignoring my phone so I can build hives for my increases this year. I've got 15 bottom boards, inner covers, and telescopic covers done. Boxes are next. Then nuc boxes, swarm traps. I get all my wood for free 😊
