Hi, Fairly new keeper here. Caught one small post swarm late last spring and have nursed them through the year. They seem to be well so far this winter and expect to see them out and about after this cold snap and things get back into the 50's.

I've room for a few more hives and access to two long existing tree hives and hope to set swarm traps when the time comes. Otherwise just reading and learning the multitude of ideas and opinions.

Thanks

Welcome to Beesource, bluetyr. There are several experienced beekeepers here on the forum who operate in Colorado.

I enjoy swarm trapping as well and I look forward to putting them out before too much longer.

Glad to have you a part of the forum, and best of success to you this season.

Hello. We moved to CO(just north of Colo Springs) 3 yrs ago. Did 9 yrs of keeping in Bay Area. Heard it is a lot tougher in CO(bears, cold, etc.) Picking up 2 packages in Aurora next month. Built a horizontal hive and 8-frame. Pastor at our church has 10+ hives so have plenty of help. Looking forward to it.
