Hello,

My name is Keith Monschke and I live in Plano, TX.  I have been reading up on and interested in Bee Keeping for about 6 years now but have never actually owned or maintained a hive.  I just recently moved to Texas from Missouri.  Now that I am here, my family owns about 120 acres of farm land in Krum, TX.  I have already gotten permission to place a hive there.  I plan on putting the hive together and placing it on the property in about January.  I then plan on buying a 3# package for the hive and installing them around April, 1.  Anyone else local... I would love to here from you.  Talk with you later,

Keith

Hi Keith:

Glad that you took the time to join our group, it surely will be a place that you will find great knowledge in the coming months as you enter into your first season of beekeeping.

I know a lot of people who would drool over 120 acres, heck I'd be happy with one - I live on a 50' x 105' lot in the middle of my small town of Lakehurst. Two hives is really all I have room for unless I lined my back fence, but I enjoy the opertunity to bring this forum and my website to so many people.

Enjoy the forums and glad to have you with us!!!

2 hives would be a much better start.  4 would be about perfect for a beginner.  4 hives would give you the chance to see how they compare but most importantly, at least 2 gives you resources to work with when a hive is in trouble.  Specifically, open brood is the most useful resource when one hive seems to be queenless.  Many solutions to common problems involve taking something from another hive.
