Hi from Ohio
« on: July 02, 2011, 08:27:06 AM »
Hi, I am in my 2nd year keeping bees, I have 3 hives, Italians that came from Georgia.  Last year I only had one hive, it did not make it through the winter.

This year it is interesting to see the differences b/w the 3 hives, one very strong, one very weak.

I feel like the bees are keeping me instead of the other way, I feel like I am always reacting instead of managing them well, but I feel more confident than last year too.

I belong to Greater Cleveland Beekeepers and Medina County Beekeepers.

So far, no SHB, no varroa.

Welcome!

I am also in my second year of beekeeping. Don't be afraid to ask questions, that's how we new beeks learn.

Welcome to the forum. We all had to ask questions in order to learn, so ask away. If it is easier to take a picture of your question then discribe, it will help us help you.  -Mike
