Re: my bee

Congratulations!  Welcome to the wonderful world of bee keeping.  Unfortunately, we lost all our hives over the winter - this year will be spent cleaning boxes, frames, organizing for foundation, and will get bees next year.

Re: my bee

I find that bees are an addiction.  The time goes by so fast when we are out there working with them.   We suffered a great loss this past winter, as did so many other people.  Our bees were still good and strong in February, then our weather turned and it got cold and damp.  Storm after storm with terrible winds and freezing rains.   We are left with 10 hives.  3 of them are weak and will need a new queen as soon as we can find some.
