Hello....I am new to this forum, but not new to beekeeping. I have been a natural, easy-going beekeeper for 5 years. I have 4 healthy hives. I painted them pink, yellow, blue and green. The pink hive is my most aggressive....my husband says they are mad because I painted them pink! Ha! They do make the most honey though, but you gotta watch your back around the pinks! It is pretty cold here now....can't wait for spring! Glad to make ya'lls acquaintance!
