HI
Ive been wondering lately if beekeepers give out  have a pheromone similar to a queen bee Cheesy
 
Over the last few years i have come into contact with other beekeepers through some ways totally unconnected with bees.
 
Today a bloke pulled up to look at a ute tray,he has bees. the other day I was in a tool shop looking at stuff to knock up some hive bodies,the shop guy asked me what i was actually up too,He had kept bees and was going to get back into them.There have been many other times that I seem to have stumbled across other beekeepers.

First let me say I am just a dumb country boy...but if I assume the truth/accuracy of your statement, could it be you subconsciously smell the honey left on their hands?  I wear gloves every single time I work my hives and often  have residual honey smell on sleeves, wrists, etc.

Since I have gotten into bees I have learned that many people I have known for years have raised or still raise bees. bye Cheesy

Hi there beebloke. Yes it is truly amazing how you find out people you know keep bees, or have kept bees. I was walking around the property of a good friend of mine, and discovered some bee hives. I enquired about them and she said "yeah, my mother and I keep those". I think its amazing the amount of people in my region who just keep one or two hives, without joining a club or a forum such as this, so you just don't know a lot of them exist.

Great to have another aussie onboard. I'm from Healesville, about 60 k's NE of Melbourne, VIC. I think this site is great for aussies to see how things are done around the world.

Have fun,
James.

HEY AUSSIES
     I almost got there in the early sixties. I was kinda stranded in England (Bloke Wife) I heard about the twenty pound program and wanted to go there instead as it seemed a lot like texas from the australians in the factory where I worked. and I wanted to catch wild horses and camels and such. alas my wife wouldn't go< I always felt I missed something there. My friend who did an automotive engineer apprenticeship at Ransome and Rapiers did go and did very well. I only found him again when I got a computor. My wife has an uncle retired from the mines in Queensland.He visited us in Texas when he got his retirement travel and ooo the stories he told about the wild and woolly aussie Cowboys
