What's going on guys...popped onto this excellent site today, and felt compelled to register after browsing through lots and lots of messages. This seems to be a great resource for newbie beekeepers such as myself! I have the feeling yall will be seeing me around quite a bit...!
I'm a psych student down here in SC finishing up my last term in college, doing lots of work studying the behavior of honeybees and their discriminative learning capabilities. Got involved last summer and since then I've been hooked on these fascinating little creatures. I'm off to Vermont next year for graduate school, and plan to be keeping a hive up there as well, although I will undoubtedly need some advice concerning wintering, etc.
Waiting on a couple of new packages to come in over the next few weeks. We've got a hive on campus, but I've twisted my professor's arm into letting me set up the observation hive here in the lab as well, so that's the next big thing. Counting down the days until the girls get here.
See you guys around!
