Hello from WV
« on: April 01, 2014, 12:16:24 PM »
Thanks for the add.  I'm heading into my second year with bees and I am enjoying every minute of it and soaking up everything I can!  For now I only have 1 hive, but I plan to have several more.

welcome.  are you collecting swarms this year?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Welcome to the forum.  :cheer:  Have you found a local beekeepers club near you? These clubs can provide a lot of local information to help you.   -Mike

Yes I'm hoping to collect swarms and make a few splits if everything goes ok.  And I've met a couple of the members of the local club, but I haven't made it to a meeting yet.
