Hello from bayou country

BEEMAN writes.
I live in Franklin, Louisiana which is in south central louisiana only a couple of miles from the gulf of mexico. There is only marsh between me and the gulf. I have only been keeping bees for about four years and have only eight hives at this time. I will be trying to increase my hives by making splits and raising my own queens this year. I find that beekeeping is relaxing to me even with the work involved. Would be interested in hearing from beeks from around this area.

Welcome aboard and best luck (thanks Brendhan) with the ist of other members in your area. You will find though that MUCH of the US and even lots of the World have similar climates and similar issues so questions and concerns are often more common than you may think.

Queenbee - thanks for the list of Louisiana forum members. I will try to contact them when I get more time.

Beemaster - thanks for the welcome. I have only found this forum a short while ago but have learned many things in only a short time. I have gotten valuable information, hints, tips, and suggestions that I will be putting to good use this spring bee season. Keep up the good work.
