    Hi Everyone,
    I am a first year bee-haver. Located about an hour north of Grand Rapids. I have two hives (NWC, I think), started from packages from California. The plan is; not to put anything in the hive that I wouldn't put in my mouth (live bees excluded).

    Welcome to the forum Ray. I hope you're not against putting a hive tool in your mouth, 'cause you'll certainly have to put it in your hives. :lol:

    Welcome, Ray. I hate to think about some of them, but I have put things in my mouth that I would NEVER put in my bee hive.
    And a few the other way around. :eek:

    Ef, I've eaten many lbs. of honey off the end of my hive tool.

    Welcome Ray! There are as many opinions in beekeeping as there are beekeepers, but this is one of the friendliest forums around.
