  1. Welcome Forum
    This looks like the forum on beekeeping I've been looking for. Not new to beekeeping, but I know there's a lot I don't know, and I'm sure I'm going to find new friends and answers to my questions. Right now I'm in Maine and have decided 8 months of winter is more than I can tolerate. ;0) So...
  2. Nectar & Pollen Plants
    Has anyone been using yellow sweet clover here in the southeast? Im on a plateau here in TN. Been wanting to put about 30 or 40 hives on it to see if its feasible. Also wondered if anyone around here has tried fireweed? thanks in advance.
  3. Bee Forum

    This colony of bees was a captured swarm that was placed in this new (empty) hive on 9 April 2011. By 25 April they had drawn 14 bars of near perfect comb, and had capped brood and honey stored throughout. On 2 May, it swarmed and what you see are bees from the remaining colony. Inside we...

    Only 32 days until the Spring Equinox but it's peeking out from behind the equator here in middle Tennessee today. The sun is shining, the wind is blowing and it is 66F in the shade (what's that 19C in the rest of the world?). The buttercups are out of the ground, but no blooms in this neck of...

    Well not yet, but I'm about to be. In the early to mid-80s I kept bees and had about a dozen hives at the height of that venture. Unfortunately, a diving accident prevented me from continuing in the hobby and I ended up giving away my equipment and bees. Fast-forward to the summer of 2010...

    Just wanted to introduce myself. I am a new beekeeper in Memphis, TN. My father was a beekeeper and I have wanted to start for a long time. Anyone else on here from Memphis? The Tennessee Social Group seems kind of sparse. pbudd72
