Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Patrick. Most folks call me Paddy. I just started beekeeping this year quite by accident. Turns out to be the fascinating thing I have ever done, even though I have little clue about what I'm doing. I get a little confused. There is A LOT to learn in a little time. I have so far managed to avoid swarming, but I'm positive that it's just beginner's luck. Anyway, I'm glad I found this site and Greetings!
