Chantal, I'm new to in 87108 near Bullhead Park.  I built a top bar hive using the Carr & Bradford plans.  Now I understand I need to get on a list NLT January to buy a starter nuc.  Any suggestions?  Thanks, Rod

Hi Chantal, I live in your neighborhood and am a top bar beekeeper. I started this past spring and have some questions about winter hives.  Seems I have quite a few bees lying dead around my door every day.  Is that normal?  Thanks!  Anita

Chantal, I haven't come across the 'map', or directions rather, which were to be 'privately emailed' to signees for the field trip tomorrow.   And I did sign up weeks ago.  Help!  I don't know where to go tomorrow!

Thanks for prompt info, Peggy

Hi Chantal, 

I just returned from a year of nursing in Haiti. While there I connected with some traditional Haitian beekeepers. I would love to share about this experience in whatever format seems best. If there is interest, I would be happy to show a little slide show at the next meeting. Thanks for all you do!
