Hi all, hope I have done this correctly
I have read and watched literally hundreds of hours of you tube clips. I procrastinated last spring on setting up but relented in last few weeks but broke all the rules, secondhand hives, crap genetics etc. Absolutely feral, i ordered and paid for new queens but was then told no queens available I cant wait for spring to get new queens and some more nucs as I have brand new woodwork ready to go
Somewhere there is a saying along the line of someone having very good theoretical competence and practical competence ;) Well I scored well on theory but having feral bees has certainly fastracked my practical competence!
Anyway great to have joined all the gurus here
