Hello everyone! I'm a hobbyist BK and have 4 colonies. I'm back into bees long after helping my father run a pollination and honey sideline business when I was in high school and college. I am hoping that this year will be one in which I can try to do a few things I've not done before. I want to produce some comb honey, to find a location for an out-apiary, and to try to raise some queens from my best hives. I have Minnesota Hygenic and Carniolan strains (2 colonies each), and I'll be getting a few Pol-line queens that I'll be putting into nucs. It's good to find this site.
