dikhou is just an abbreviation of my first and second name - boring !!!.

I am a beginning beekeeper in UK. Keen to learn and also to use hive monitoring like hivetool. I made a top bar hive last winter and started a swarm in there in June. Unfortunately the swarm was tiny (about a couple of pints) and I believe the wasps got it after they had made a couple of small combs!  Maybe they just took off after rattling around in such a large space?

I have since got a couple of standard hives (BS Nationals) and have one very vigorous colony which I am feeding and treating for Varroa in the hope of getting them through the winter. Hop[e they get off to a flying start in March or April. At the moment they are very active bringing in stores which I am supplementing with syrup. The weather here on the east coast of England UK is very mild just now - an Indian summer already!

I'd be glad of advice on how to get registered on hivetool.org or .net to find out more about data logging.

All the best Smiley

the area i live in has a long history of pirates, with even the local football team calling themselves the pirates.  i perform cutouts and removals, so i thought hivepirate would be a cute name that both reflects what i do and the area i do it in.
