Hello From North East Scotland
« on: April 27, 2007, 09:33:13 AM »
I am just introducing myself!!! I am from the north east of Scotland UK (Turriff)! I am 25 years old and have been keeping bees for 3 years. I currently have 35 stocks. My bees are in national hives!!! Proabably the most popular in the UK!!! Trying to increse up to about 50!!! The bees are working hard just now on the Oil Seed Rape!!! then they will be moved to tree/clover and finally up to the hills for the heather!!! (I have caught the bug big time!!!!) :-D

we missed your intro.  welcome.  scotland is on my list for next year!!  enjoy the forums.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I too missed your intro. Welcome! I know how it is to catch the bug. This beekeeping bug has bit me pretty hard. I am facinated by the bees.

What is a national hive? How is it different from the Langstroth hive?
