New beekeeper from Finland
« on: May 24, 2011, 07:34:29 AM »
Hello,

I have started with two colonies last year, they both coped with the long winter. Now I'm looking for novel methods to fight against varroa.

welcome!  we have another beekeeper from Finland on here.  he goes by the name Finsky. 

glad you found us  :-D
.....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.....

I don't fight them, but I also don't have issues with them anymore.

Hi, I'm new to the forum too and am just lurking to learn as much as I can about my favorite creatures on earth, lol! Wow, all the way from Finland! Hi and welcome. I have lots of online friends overseas. One is in England who I Skype with and many more that I correspond on a daily basis. It's fantastic how same interests cross all boundaries. I also have another friend who lives in the Italian Alps who is an outstanding photographer. She and I grow roses, but she sent such gorgeous photos of honeybees and recommended some of plants to have for them as well....
