Hi all........... Guess I missed this site on the million or so Googles i have done for Beekeeping and related. Last summer (in July) i aquired my first hive. Had all the newbee jitters, everything was a major concern, or catastrophy. VM, SHB, AFB, heck just the letters were freakin me out. I'm happy to say my hive over wintered very well. They are going strong and busting at the seams now. I have become much more relaxed, and do my level best to NOT be a "beekeeping hypochondriac". 1st package is due May 8, cant wait to hive them....... Should go smooth as silk....... after all, i read all the books, read the forums all over, so i'm certain i know all there is to know now ........what could possibly go wrong :?
