dikhou is just an abbreviation of my first and second name - boring !!!.

I am a beginning beekeeper in UK. Keen to learn and also to use hive monitoring like hivetool. I made a top bar hive last winter and started a swarm in there in June. Unfortunately the swarm was tiny (about a couple of pints) and I believe the wasps got it after they had made a couple of small combs!  Maybe they just took off after rattling around in such a large space?

I have since got a couple of standard hives (BS Nationals) and have one very vigorous colony which I am feeding and treating for Varroa in the hope of getting them through the winter. Hop[e they get off to a flying start in March or April. At the moment they are very active bringing in stores which I am supplementing with syrup. The weather here on the east coast of England UK is very mild just now - an Indian summer already!

I'd be glad of advice on how to get registered on or .net to find out more about data logging.

All the best Smiley


May your hives always hum...

the area i live in has a long history of pirates, with even the local football team calling themselves the pirates.  i perform cutouts and removals, so i thought hivepirate would be a cute name that both reflects what i do and the area i do it in.
