Hi All,
I'm new to beekeeping and hoping that there may be other beeks in my area that could help me out with some advice from time to time.

Thanks Ozzbuzz

I have been reading your posts.

Got my first hive a few weeks back and just waiting for a nuc I have ordered.
I'm tipping that it's going to addictive though I will try and keep it simple till I get a handle on the basics.

Thanks

Welcome! As OzBuzz said there are a few of us around Melbourne (and also around the world) who are very happy to give any advice/help you need. Most importantly, enjoy your bees!

What sort of bees do you have? How did you come by them?

Thanks Phil,
I currently have Italians, picked them up about 3weeks ago from a nice bloke in Surry Hills the queen is 12 months old so I guess I will have a year of learning before I re-queen. Seem to be a strong Hive and haven't had any fromblems when I open the hive up.so I'm hoping to get a bit of Honey this season. The Nuc is Italians also with a new queen though I'm not sure how long it will be before I get them. Hopefully not too long now though I'm hoping for so Honey.
I'm starting to get itchy fingers though as Ive seen some hive advertised though worried about problmes or week hives.

I'm on 60 Ac with heaps of Native Flora around with a couple of spring fed creeks so I'm hoping that the bees will have a nice enviroment to make lots of honey.

I enjoy reading your posts and thanks for your intrest.

You will have no trouble making friends on here  grin

Lots of us have trouble finding places to store the hives. You might find some one local who can share hives in trade for space to store theirs?
