I am a once-upon-a-time beekeeper's helper now starting own apiary. Planning to start small (first 12-15 hives this spring!) and rapidly grow up into a part-time business. I have loads of questions! The folks at Yahoo!:Northlandbeekepers have been very helpful so far, as has my experience in Washington State, twelve years stale though it is. I thought I might reach out to an international crowd for many of my questions, though.

See you on the appropriate boards for those!

Very Nice to Have You Aboard:

Welcome and thanks for filling out your member profile - it truly helps others know how better to help and learn from you. It has been cold here (relatively normal I guess) but it teases us by warming up every 5 or 6 days. It hit 55F yesterday and the bees were flying heavily.

Again, thanks for tuning in and glad to have you with us. Talk soon!!!

In Alaska 12-15 hives would make you a major beekeeper.
Welcome to our humble chunk of internet space and please feel free to keep all that cold weather with you.

Sincerely,

Seward is not very cold at all. Most of the mid-west (OH, IL, etc) get significantly colder. We rarely see ambiant temps much colder than +20F, in Seward, and usually hovers near freezing +/- 5F. Then again, being a coastal town, wind chill frequently drops that to -20F or lower.

Thanks for the "warm" welcome!  cool

If you want to see lakes, come in summer. If you want the Lights, come in winter -- they're very difficult to see while the sun is up. Wink
