    Heya folks,

    I run a pest management/bee conservation business here in the Great Plains state of Nebraska.

    I do live removals, cut outs, swarm captures, etc.. in the metro area here.

    I also run a live weekend "Bee Market" selling beekeeping equipment & supplies to area beekeepers as well as honey and beeswax products, bee related gift items, etc...

    I am the President of the relatively new Omaha Bee Club, now at 45 dues paid members strong since last December. (yay us!!).

    I use primarily Warre/naturalistic style methods and hives. no chemicals, etc...

    I'll likely be lurking for awhile, getting a feel for the atmosphere here, but I'll answer just about any post sent my way.

    thank you much. I do believe I might recognize the names of a few folks from a couple other forums here, so it should be allright.

    nice to meet you.

    Welcome Big Bear.
    As Perry said, this is a very friendly place to hang out. Lots of knowledgable folks. More new beeks are starting out with TBH's, and have a lot of questions. Most of us use Langs, so your expertise is welcome.
    Don't forget to check out the mini-chat at the top of the page. We have alot of fun there.

    Since I have no clue who you are, let me at least give you your first "Thanks" to get you off and rolling.

    Thank you all for the welcoming words.

    I believe beekeeping should be fun and I plan to keep that as a promise by letting everyone know that I intend to stick to Grandma's old saying, if I don't have anything nice to say, well I'll just sit back and watch instead.
