New kid on the block
« on: June 17, 2008, 06:52:27 PM »
Hi Members,
I have heard about this Forum from other 'beeks' from over the pond.  I thought I would like to see whats on offer and hopefully contribute to a informative Forum.
About myself.  I have kept bees for 10 years, not a long time in most beekeeping circles, but enough to know a little bit about these marvelous little insects.  I am keen on microscopy which entails pollen recognition, the external and internal 'bits' of the honey bee, and disease recognition.
I live in Cambridgeshire, UK.
That's about all there is to tell I think.
Best regards;

Bcrazy.  Welcome to our forums.  Microscopy, that is interesting, I am sure that you will be telling us more about this fascinating part of the world of the honeybee.  YOu will have more tales to tell.  AND....10 years with the bees is a long time, you WILL have more tales to tell.  You will make new friends here, and we will hear of beekeeping in the UK, now cool.  Have a wonderful, most beautiful day, Cindi

Welcome Bcrazy!  I am also "keen on microscopy" of bees, so it is good to have company.  Have you done any culturing of bee diseases?
