Hello my name is Carl and this is my first post.I live in Merlin Oregon,that is about 3 miles north of Grants Pass.I am a 67 yr old male and have lived on my small farm for the past 35 yrs. This all started with finding a wild honeybee hive that i brought home to save the colony after watching the bees for a while i got the BUG!.So far i have read everything i can find on the topic,about 6 months of research reading and have built my first honeybee hive from plans downloaded from the web.Have talked to one beekeeper so far.Am very worried about spring and swarm!.So any help out there will be appreciated.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Regarding swarming, please read from the website I have posted


http://www.bushfarms.com/beesswarmcontrol.htm

There are many schools of thought on this process, but Michael Bush has written a wonderful book on beekeeping. He is a member of this forum will probably jump in from time to time to answer any questions you may have about beekeeping. You can read everything on his web page as well.

Good luck
