Good Morning Everyone!
« on: March 26, 2018, 10:07:45 am »
I'm from Spencerville, Ontario... About an hour south of Ottawa...
Started with two nucs last in spring '17...
One went south on me, I ended up combining the two.
It seem pretty populous now in late March, hope they boom this spring..
I got this forum link from Scott Sievers at The Outyard.
http://www.outyard.net/intro.html
Looking forward to taking part...
Cheers!

Welcome Treeman.   I started last Spring as well with 2 nucs.  Lost 'em both.  Starting almost fresh this Spring with 2 more nucs.  Good forum here.  I've learned a lot from these folks.  I think you'll enjoy it.  PappyRick

Good to see you here buddy! Don't be afraid to post! Questions or even about your latest inspection etc. Always glad to listen, watch and enjoy the trials and joys of other beekeepers!

Welcome, from Nova Scotia. If you are ever on a holiday in the region be sure to get a hold of some of the members on the forum here in NS. We can show off our Maritime bees. :D

Oh no, another one of Scott's buddies.  Well, we won't hold it against you.  Seriously though, Scott is a good guy and a heck of a beekeeper.  He's kind of fun to hang with too!

Welcome aboard Treeman, glad to have you here!  Ted

After re-thinking my previous post I feel an apology may be in order.  If anyone took what I wrote as anything other than me messing with my buddy Scott I have committed a grievous dis-service, to them, to this forum and to Scott.  For this I offer my most sincere apology.  I find that I can be at my dumbest when trying to be funny.  Ted

Welcome to the forum Treeman.  Could your chosen moniker hint at a any special affinity you have for catching swarms?  I don't know what the situation is in Ontario, but catching swarms is one of my favorite activities as a beekeeper.  Besides, they're free.

Erring on the side of caution, didn't want to scare treeman off.

If anyone thought you were being mean spirited they will soon learn that we are a fun loving group. Those of us that have been around for a while give and get lots of ribbing.  If we thought you were serious, I understand riverbee does a mean snow dance!!   :laugh:
