Hello all on the first of this mouth will be six mouths i have been keeping bee an boy do i enjoy it My five junk yard hives are doing real good making comb i had to added upper suppers to the hive an move the honey stores an some of the brood to the upper super to make the hive bigger I just spend hours sitting looking at the bee's bringing in pollen I even tried my hand at wax melting got 3 pounds of wax an still have more frames to clean. This for the new bee-keeper keep a log of what you are doing an the shape of your hive's because for the short time i have bend a new bee i have learn a lot. I will upload some pictures of my hive's when i reach my post count. =^..^=

Hi Hippie Bee Keep,
Congrats on joinin info packed BeeMaster. I'm in southern Calif in San Gabriel Valley. Where abouts is Brawley located & what type of weather & plants for bee forage do you have there?

Hi Apis M Rescue I live 20 miles north of the US-Mexican border for the weather have you every open the door of your oven when baking a cake or pizza an the rush of hot air hit's your face that's how it is out here 110* in the shade an about 43* in winter for plants this is a farming area beats carrots hay all cut before flowering the only plants i see flowing are the salt cedar trees i do see the bees bringing in pollen to see more of my area (google Brawley, Ca) an you will see where i live out in no man's land. =^..^=
