New member in western NC
« on: April 25, 2013, 03:30:17 PM »
Springtime greetings from sunny Asheville.  I'm excited to have joined this forum and to learn more.  A friend and I have been involved with beekeeping for three years and just suffered a big loss of three hives over the winter.  We tried installing three packages this spring, and only one has survived.

Welcome!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Welcome to the forum, Kirk.  Sorry to hear of your bee loss.  So far I have been lucky I guess.  I got bees in 11 and so far I have robbing last fall and lost 1 and 1 hive just left this spring, I had already did first inspection this year before they left.
I was up to 6 back to 5.  I do get to rambling.  Good to have you here.  Good luck to you and your bees.

Welcome to the forum, Kb.  Hope your remaining colony is a boomer and you have to split multiple times this season! :)  You might want to add your location in your profile for folks' future reference.

Best wishes,
Ed
