Hi@all,

my name is Hary, I´m from Austria in Middle Europe. I´m 30 years old, married and I have three kids. Beekeeping I started in 2000. Now I have 30 hives with Carnica bees. My frame size is "Zander 2/3", nearly the same as the honey frames in Dadant, just a little bit shorter.
If you have any questions, please ask.

Regards,
Hary (sorry for my English)

.....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.....

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.

Hello again,

I have the apis mellifera carnica, also called „Grey bee“. It is a very quiet and peaceful kind. Usually I don´t work with protective cloths. In winter the population becomes small, so they need less food then Buckfast or Ligustica bees. In spring the population grows very fast.
Negative is just that they like to swarm, but I think this characteristic came from former times, because the beekeepers propagated with swarms and used very small hives.

My hive type: I make the hives by myself from spruce timber. I use 10 frames per body, the frame size is 16.5x6.25 inches. In summer I usually use three bodies for breeding, no Queen excluder and then two honey bodies.

My Queen production: I use the Nicot system, have a Starter and a Finisher. When the Queens are eclosed, they come into “Apidea”-hives. This hives I bring up to a farmer in the mountains for copulation.

My honey: I don’t roam with my bees, so I only can harvest two kinds of honey: floral honey in May (major constituent is dandelion) and sylvan honey in end of July (major constituents are spruce and raspberry).

Pics will fallow…
Regards,
Hary
