Hi from England
« on: July 17, 2011, 06:13:27 PM »
Hi everyone. I have just taken delivery of my first bees and installed them into a top bar hive. It's been about a month now and everything seems to bee ok. I have done one good inspection last week and they are drawing out natural comb and getting on with it. I don't expect any honey this season but will look forward to some next year, hopefully. Well that's, me introduced to you and I will bee popping back again from time to time to read all your posts.  All the best from South Coast UK.

doing this beekeeping lark since May. The trouble is they are facinating - the bring out the mathematician, scientist and engineer in me. 
The differential equations modeling their growth, temperature reulation, engineering honey efficiency into hives ....hooked.   btw I dont lie  honey
If they increased energy bill for your home by a factor of 4.5 would you consider that cruel? If so why are you doing that to your bees?

For what?  Do they have a problem?
