I'm a new top bar beek from Victoria, Texas. I caught 13 swarms in traps last year and now have 11 hives - 2 absconded. Did my first cutout on Friday (2/21/2014) and trapped the queen in a queen catcher - was awesome. Put the clip in the hive and got all the bees!!

 Got 14 swarm traps out now just waiting for any takers. I learned extensively from McCartney Taylor at LearningBeekeeping.com. He gets major thanks for my quick success.

Welcome to the forum, Cary.  Sounds like you had a pretty good year last year.  Glad you found us.  Good luck to you and your bees.

The closest bee club is in Corpus Christi, about 1.5 hours away. I'm thinking about getting one started here in Victoria. But I definitely the only Victoria Top Bar beek. Thanks for the welcome!!
