   Hi all,
     Got two hives last fall, and found and old extractor for 80 bucks.  I took the plunge after a long time wanting to do this.  My wife wasn't that thrilled, but after a swarm appeared on our mailbox it was a done deal for me.  The hives wintered well, and I am glad things are warming up on North Carolina's coastal plain.

Hello ! and welcome aboard. Sounds like you are on your way. If your other half is like mine she will come around when you show her that some of the hive byproduct can be marketed under her name ( like candles and honey) hint, hint. Wink

Wish a swarm would show up on my mailbox.  I have never seen a swarm.  I only hear about them two months after they were in someones tree.

Welcome aboard and enjoy your adventure.

CHD, welcome to our forum, so great you found us.  A swarm on that mailbox, what a cool thing.  This world of the honeybee is a very exciting adventure.  You will have many adventures, with many a great tale to tell.  Stick around, we love new members.  Have that most awesomely beautiful and great day, with that same health.
