Hi James,

Do you keep any bees where you live or do you have a space issue?

Hi All,

Haven't been round here for a while... Glad to see that there is now an Aussie forum set up on the board.

I'm 34, from Tasmania and now have three hives. I started the season with one but have managed to split a hive and also catch a swarm - so that makes three this year. I'd like to build up but slowly...

Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things here too... especially now that the season is getting going again.

What will the password be so we know folks here really are fair dinkum dead set dinky di true blue cockatoos?  How about they have to recite all the words of Waltzing Matilda from memory, including the AFL ones...waltzing matilda, boo for st kilda....and be able to play a lagerphone and digeridoo at the same time, as well as recognise the difference in the way each state does its pie and peas.

G'day Pete,

Reckon you pass the test.  Hope it's not too blowy down there - wouldn't want your bees to blow out to sea. 

And happy new year to you and your 6-legged friends.

no, we have long memories  grin

Slicko, have you been on the straight vegemite again?

Westmar, thanks for the info about the natives.  There are zillions round here, but I've never seen their hidey holes.

Hey Westmar,

What do the native hives look like? Are they something hanging from a tree or are they a hole in a branch?

Mike from WA newbee to beekeeping.  I have one topbar hive that is going really well and just made up an 8 frame WSP hive today in readiness for a colony that is in a compost bin that I am going to rehouse.  I like the topbar system so am going foundationless in my new hive as well.

Is Darren the the only other Western Australian here?
