Hello Everyone

I'm a hobbyist bee keeper with three hives and live in a semi rural area of Auckland New Zealand. I'm a member of the Auckland Bee Keepers club and have joined this forum to learn more about bee keeping. Next season I hope to have 6/7 hives and from there .... who knows.

 

Until next time

Hey Rodney. I am a 3rd year Beekeeper in the Mississippi Delta here in the U.S. I really hate I waited til my late 40's to find something I'm so passionate about but I'm glad I found it. I wouldn't attempt to give you any advice simply because of our different locales but there is plenty of advice on every subject here and lots of long time beekeepers to help. My only advice is don't plan on how many hives you want to add next year. Nature has a real good habit of changing that for you. Just do your best at managing your Bees and you may even do better than you expected.

We are approaching our winter here in NZ so will see hows things work out. Within the next few weeks I am collecting 2 more hives from an elderly bee keeper in our club who is wanting to reduce his numbers and work load so I will have 5 hives to get through the winter. Here in Auckland it doesn't get very cold so hopefully all my hives will make it through to next spring.
