Hello,

My name is Tony.  I live in a medium sized town in Wisconsin.  This is my 3rd year as a beekeeper.  There is A LOT to learn.  I do have a mentor.  I just found out that he is an admin on this site! Hi zweefer!!  I currently have 2 hives, they are looking very good!  I run all medium size boxes.  I am short, so these boxes work good for me.  I am in this for the fun of the bees!  Honey is a bonus to help pay for the fun.

Happy Beekeeping!

Tony

Welcome! You’ll find there are many other here that know a lot more than I do, and you will not find a friendlier bunch of beekeepers anywhere else, I guarantee it!  In the meantime, feel free to browse the forums and utilize the search bar for any specifics you may have... or when all else fails, start a new thread!

Welcome goforlow.  This is a good site to learn.  I'm still learning, but then again, I'm a slow learner.

I think even iddee is still learning.  This is a hobby where the learning can and will never stop.  If only the bees would read the material, maybe they could act like they are supposed to!  :laugh:

Welcome. Yep, got my shoes off so I can learn even faster. Gives my brain some air.

Welcome young feller. I had a neighbor from Wisconsin that was a migratory beekeeper, Iddee drove his semi hauling his bees in a different century.

Thank you all for the welcome.  As for zweefer stories...he is my mentor, and I like that!  But, if it's REALLY good, I will have to share!!
Young feller, ha ha ha!!  I am new to beekeeping, not life, I am knocking on 50 yrs old.

You're still welcome, YOUNG  fellow. I'll be 75 in 2 weeks. My son is over 50.   ;D
