Just joined. No bees as yet but have joined Kelvin Valley Beekeepers near Glasgow. I am looking forward to getting our first bees in the spring and will appreciate any help and advice or if anyone has equipment for sale. I am a member of some other fabulous smallholding and poultry forums and I really hope this one is as informative and friendly as they are.

Hi blairshill welcome aboard.

That was a good move joining your local group,although its not for everyone so dont let it put you off if you dont click with group members.

I am lucky that my local group are great but not every area is so good.

No. I command flying on my cottage balcony. I just tell them that every one whose honey yield is under average, the queen will be changed. It works, at least the changing.
