Hello everyone.  I started Beekeeping in May of 2011, so I am very new although I learned a tremendous amount already.  I currently have 12 hives and I have two great mentors to help teach me all the different things I need to do and when to do them.  They have proven invaluable.  Currently reading The Hive and the Honey Bee and I am keeping a Bee journal. Started with 2 hives and from there I was hooked and then another 10 became available to me so I am in it now. jaw drop

Welcome B E-Z. 12 hives your first year, now that's impressive. It's great that you have a couple of mentors.

You are very lucky to have help with your bees. When I first started beekeeping I was on my own for the first 2 years until I found this forum. Still I wished I had a mentor to help me inspect the hives back then. But it all worked out anyway.

Welcome to the forum.   cheer

12 hives, I hope you can use one of your mentor's extractors next year. With 12 hives your first year, you may be exporting by 2013.  lau lau

Listen to others but make your own decisions. That way you own the results.

12 hives? Impressive. I started this year as well and only have two. If I got any more I fear my wife would make me go live in the back yard with the hives Smiley
