Hi

I am a new member here, have come across from the BBKA forum as it is being so poorly run, it is turning into a cliquey club.

I am hoping this forums powers at be will be a little more friendly?

Between me and my dad we have about 20 hives, at 2 sites.

I can supply pictures if you would like to see some?

Cheers

Dave

Hi Dave welcome aboard,many of the new members have joined up for the FUN aspect of beekeeping and friendliness we are trying to promote.

A bit more playground rather than headmasters office attitude.

Would love to see some pics if you have any.

Hi Dave. You nursing is about same size what I have. Last summer I kept 25 hives in 7 places. I collect them all for winter to my cottage yard.

Oh boy old forum. If something is not allowed, it is forbidden. I do what I do and I don't ask permission. :)

Hi

I think I remember you saying about bringing hives back to your yard on the other forum, you heat them don't you.

Tell me if you aren't who I think you are!

Cheers

Dave you either strap down for the winter or you move your hives stands and all?

Did you make the boxes yourself?

Hi

Me and my dad made some, but most are Thornes Seconds or home made ones from a chap we know who gave up a year or two back.

The straps were as a couple were leaning, but we allways have a strap on each hive, just to be safe. Something I think is worth doing for the 5 secs it takes to do.

We also used to get the odd livestock in the apiary, but we fenced it all off last Sunday, so we are safe now.

Cheers

Dave
