We are newbees are are curious where the majority of the bee advice will be coming from.  We are part of the upper states.  Our low this year was -10 degrees.  We assume the difficulties we face will not match those who raise bees in the lower states.

I've kept bees in Illinois, Mississippi, and North Carolina, so how should I vote?

Your assumption is correct, but so far the poll is hugely skewed (all southern) but there are lots and lots of experienced beekeepers all over the USA and many parts beyond in the forums.

Some of the best advice comes from Finland  Wink

To be fair, there is great advice from all over the country as Bee Happy and Iddee reports.

Although we have cold and snow up North,we have very little trouble with small hive beetles,which may make the cold seem like a good thing.

Ill take the colder weather and stronger honey flows and knock on wood, no shb, or ahb.  We also dont have poisonous bugs and reptiles all over so Ill take the trade off.

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.

We are newbees are are curious where the majority of the bee advice will be coming from.
While some questions are fairly generic and answers aren't location-dependent; I believe that most of us here take a look at the location in your profile before offering advice. If you post a question that is location-specific, most of the time you can expect a location-specfic answer.

In western Nebraska and Laramie Wyo we had several winters where it was -40 F.  Not only that but -40 F every night for almost a month on one occasion.  Now I'm in the warm climate of Southeast Nebraska where we are surprised when it hits -27 F which it does now and then.
