New Beekeeper from the Pacific Coast.
« on: May 10, 2010, 09:36:50 AM »

Hi everyone;

I was trying to find information on using thyme plants for mite control when I found this bbs.

We had hive in the 1990s and just re-started 2 years ago.    We lost the first hive to a skunk but the 2nd one wintered over and looks ok so far this year after adding some anti-skunk devices.    WE know very little about beekeeping but are always interested to learn.

welcome.  lots of info on here and many people to help you out.  it will be easier to get answers that are specific to your problems if you can put your location in your profile. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. 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.....
