Just joined this site, haven't even had time to look around yet. A little backround is in order I suppose. My cousin and I have just finished our first season of beekeeping and really enjoy it. We started with 4 packages and now thanks to a couple of swarms (1 ours and 1 somebody elses) we are at 6 hives. I will keep this short by saying we are really having fun with this new hobby despite it taking more money, time and work than we figured. Good luck to all and thanks, Dave.
