    Hi all. I'm Dave and I live in Parke County, Indiana, almost on the IL state line. I finally made the transition from 'lurker' to 'member' today. I've been reading posts from this site for about 6 months. It's been very helpful. I'm a newer beekeeper, with my first year almost behind me. Started out last spring with a new package, and lucked into a swarm on July 1. I'm coming out of winter with just the July swarm, as of today. Glad to be here, hope to learn more.

    Just remember, a newbie will notice things an old timer will miss. Your posts are as important as anybody's. Maybe more so, so let's see a lot of them.

    Hi Dave,

    Have you connected with the Sugar Creek Beekeepers? I know several beeks in that club - good folks. You're also going to be close to the Heartland Bee conference this summer - maybe we can meet:
