My name is Diane and this is my sixth year of beekeeping. I use mostly wooden nationals but have got a couple of poly hives to try out.

Hi Dawn, Welcome to the forum. Will you be going to the BIBBA conference next month? I went a couple of years ago and would like to do this one but it's looking unlikely this time for me :(
