Hi, I'm Patricia and new to this site and I am baffled trying to figure out how to post something. I am from Hampton Bays, NY USA and will be just starting with beekeeping this year. I'm learning a lot from reading the posts which is just great. I hope I will be better with my bees than using this site.  Undecided

Welcome!  As a confirmed luddite, thechNOpeasant I'm with you.  I've found learning to maneuver and navigate around these kinds of places is harder than working my bees, often it is much more confusing.  I rarely visit during the summer months…too buzzzzy.  Happy reading……..Happy Beekeeping!

Welcome to the forum, Patricia.  You may want to find your local bee club also, they can bee a big help sometimes.  Good luck with your quest to become a great beek.

Hi,
Yes I am. I joined the LI Beekeepers Organization and will be taking a course under Ray Lackey from Bohemia. I went to my first meeting of the LI Beekeepers this past Sunday in Smithtown. Very nice people. Right now I'm making lists of what I want to purchase as far as hives and equipment It gets expensive. I have some nucs ordered through Ray Lackey so I'm ready to do it. I stayed on this site for 2 hrs last night getting all kinds of info such as plastic or wax foundation (I decided against the plastic), 8 frame or 10 frame setup, so I'm going with the 8. I'm trying to learn from what others are saying in their experiences. And I also learned how to reply on this forum tonight so I'm not quite hopelessly lost. Smiley

Patricia, are you taking Ray Lackeys season long course? I started with Ray and went with all his recomendations to date. I help him unload the nucs when they arrive i think its a blast. I was at last Sundays meeting as well, very interesting speaker on making money off your hives. Ray is a great teacher and you will be amazed at his knowledge of beekeeping. how many Nucs did you order?

Yes I was at that meeting and got the new member greeting. I signed up for a crash course that was supposed to be all day Sat Feb. 8th but Ray just said tonight it's been cancelled because of not enough people. So I'm aiming for the same course in March in St. James. I would have liked the all season long one but I have scheduling conflicts. I ordered 2 nucs and am thinking of adding a 3rd. On the fence about that one. Glad you have good things to say about Ray and the courses. How many hives do you have?

Pat..I have 7 hives at the moment..not knowing your background. .I would highly recommend the season long course if you could swing it..just fyi Rays nucs are usually strong..many beginners have swarming issues early on..I started with 2 nucs in April and had 5 hives by June..the season long course was indespensible to me..but maybe you can mentor up with someone close to you through the club..

I definitely will only get 2 nucs after what you've experienced. Wow. I hope the bees are still the same as when you bought yours. I really wish I could take the season long course but it's not possible for me. I don't like having to just take a crash course but I have no alternative. That's why I'm watching as many videos as I can right now and am reading books.

Patricia, One of the things I've been doing (first year beek), in addition to what you've been doing, is I started with the most recent post and read the threads one at a time going back. Good luck!
