Hi, I'm going into my fourth year of beekeeping this summer.  I started with a feral colony that had invaded an old chimney in our house, added 4 new hives the next year; caught 2 swarms from the original feral hive for 7 last year.  I lost 3 hives over the winter - not CCD - I think that the nucs I bought had Africanized bees which don't do so well in Colorado - certainly one of the hives was especially aggressive, so I wasn't sorry to lost that one.  Bought some more nucs this year so I'm now up to 10 hives - in back yard up against foothills.  I'm doing this with a few friends, so we share the learning and the honey.  Hope

Hopemore, welcome to our forum, great you found us.  Only one post, come on back.  With your four years among the bees, you will have stuff to contribute, a tale or two to tell, experiences.  We love to listen, we learn too from posts of others.  Stick around, you will enjoy your stay here.  Have a wonderful and most awesome day, health.  Cindi
