Hello from Smithsburg, MD
« on: March 19, 2007, 09:14:01 PM »
     Hello from Smithsburg, MD.  My name is Ben Clopper, I've messed around with bees on/off for several years.  I think perhaps it's time to get a little more serious.  This past winter I've successfully overwintered four colonies, and I hope to have several more by the end of this season.  I don't know what I want to make of it, but I enjoy working bees and have to start building my empire somewhere.  I've read several posts here and on the beesource forums, and decided to join both with the user name BenC.  I might be able to assist a beginner, and who knows what I have yet to learn myself.  By the way, if anyone is wondering where the heck Smithsburg, MD is, It's east of a city called Hagerstown, and west of Frederick.

Yes, I'm afraid my knowledge is vast :roll: :roll: :roll:...that's a joke!  Last year I decided to incorporate small cell/natural cell into some hives, just to see what happened.  Everything seems alright so far.  The ideas supporting small cell make sense to me, I don't see how experimenting with it could hurt.  I don't have any questions at the moment, but decided to join anyhow.  If I see a thread I feel I can contribute to, I'll certainly chime in.

You can also start a thread with a question you might have also. :)
