More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Aquila, welcome to our forum, so great that you have found us.  This will be a place where you can tell us your stories, tales and experiences, and make some new friends.  We did, as Kathy said, have a member in Finland, Finsky was his handle, he has not been active for some long time.  I am of Finnish descent, and have a Finnish Sister-in-Law.  We love new members, stick around.  Have a wonderful day, great health.  Cindi

Thanks everybody.
Hear are some general information about beekeeping in Finland that I know.
As I know we have 3000 beekeepers and totally 47 000 hives in Finland. This information I have got from beekeepers association. Finland is a country with population about 6-7 millions.
A real flow season is about 3 months.
Most popular hive system is 10 deep frames Langstroth.
Commercial beekeepers use normally only this standard. Hobby beekeepers use narrow frames also.
Polystyrene hives are a standard now but some senior beekeepers still use hives from wood.
An annual number of hives that professionals have are about 150-300. One beekeeper has 3000 but he is only one, as I know.

.
Let me provide my request also.

I will be in the USA some time in September-November just for two-tree weeks.

I would like to find an opportunity to get training work in professional beekeeping place. I would like to get new experience in ways of caring bees as well as making honey and comb honey especially. Also I am interesting in different equipment that may be popular in the USA but not in Europe.

I will be grateful for any help with this issue.
