Hello, I'm a new beekeeper from North Alabama. My dad kept bees during my growing up years. I knew a few basics, but was reintroduced by a member and friend on here "squarepeg". I set my first trap today on a perch I built and at the urging of my mentor, I'll try and post a pic of it. My wife and I are looking forward to this adventure!
i went over to my neighbor's place this afternoon to help him go through his hives. they had not been inspected yet this spring. we found a couple of colonies that were well into swarm preps, to the point of capping queen cells. looks like we got our traps set just in time!
Welcome aboard FRB. If squarepeg is your mentor, you've paired up with a good one. I've been to visit his place myself. He's got a really nice setup. Beware of his bees though, they do sting first time visitors! Maybe you and him can load up and come critique my setup some time.
