Hi, Dave and Vishala, new to this site, and new to the Bee Life. So excited to have found it. Wondering if there is anyone else trying to do TF Beekeeping in NW Washington. We would love to chat with you. We have 1 top bar hive and 1 Longstraff. The Topbar swarmed twice so we now have 4 hives. Crazy for the first 12 weeks of Bees. But we are loving it. Had a bear pass through this morning.... the adventure continues.
