Hi all! My name is Karen and I've been a hobbist beekeeper for four years. I've been reading a great deal on Slovienian Hives as it's becoming harder for me to lift Langs. I also like the idea of sheltering the hives in a shed during our very cold winters and am planning on moving my Langstroths over in the spring. I hoping to talk to other AZ Hivers on this forum as the more I plan, the more questions come to mind!
