Hi! I just wanted to introduce myself to the Beekeeping forum.
My name is Helmuthd (short for Helmet Head...ya know, your hair gets messed after you take off your motorcycle helmet after a long ride)
I just started my first hive last week, and I am really excited about bees! So far so good, I just found and marked the Queen today :) :)
I got into the whole bee thing when I came across a new hive in my backyard tree. Interesting and fun. I did some research, and read a few books. They recently swarmed, and I was able to catch the swarm from the nearby bushes and put them into a new hive. what luck!
Its a small swarm, the Queen looks great, and theres no signs of disease....so far so good. :lol:
