Hi.  Lots on here to read and help with your learning.  Welcome.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.
Alexis de Tocqueville

Hello fellow bee keepers.
I'm an amateur bee keeper and i would like to learn more about bees and their nature.

Sharing a rough "mediterranean climate" (without the chilly winters) here at Lat.18 I throw in my "G'day" welcome and mine own Hello World.
Not a drop of Italian blood in me, despite my use of  "eltalia" I lean towards apis mellifera ligustica as honest hard working mediterranean exports well worth propagating.
Welcome loner :-)


Cheers.

Bill

Welcome. I hear that Greek honey is delicious.

Yes Greek honey is great but i believe that every area has it's own different taste and aroma.
Our planet is blessed with a vast number of plants, so there are countless types of honey.
I raise my own field with Mentha pulegium. And i believe in about 3 weeks i will harvest my hives.
If you like i can send you a jar of mentha honey for free.
