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.
