    I was just wondering if there are any beekeepers among our flock here. I'm gonna take a beekeeping course in the spring and I'm gonna start a couple of top-bar hives.

    I've been a beekeeper for 60+ years. Was even once a big time manufacturer of woodenware. Check my intro pics on the sticky(page 39) thread under the topic of Family Life & New Member Introductions

    I'm just grateful to here that there are some live bees remaining.
