  • Hello from Fairbanks, AK

    Hi, I am a first year beekeeper although planning has been a couple of years as this is a pretty extreme climate in which to be doing this. I started 4 colonies this spring in Lazutin horizontal hives. The packages of bees were obtained from a treatment free, small cell keeper in the Anchorage area and they seem to be doing well so far. They were fed with 1:1 for the first month until the dandelion bloom and hopefully won't need further feeding.
    Appreciate the fact that there is a forum dedicated to treatment free beekeeping as social media is not something I am willing to use.
    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Hi Bryan
    welcome! I just joined this group because I had enough of the Facebook group. So happy to find a place to share off social media as well. I'm a third year beek in new York.

    Look forward to hearing about your beekeeping adventures.

      Thanks. I have learned so much in this first few months and will make some changes going forward. Will post some pictures and stories and have some questions for sure.
