Hello from Porter County Indiana, Northwest Indiana
« on: January 20, 2021, 01:57:17 pm »
Hello and thanks for letting me join this group.
I currently have 11 hives into winter that are still viable and looking for them all to survive...  Yeah I'm optimistic...lol
Looking to meet and interact with other BeeKeepers and gain more knowledge.
Currently interested in finding any added information concerning Winter Ventilation I can find..

Thanks in advance for any info offered.

Aloha and welcome IndianaBeeMan.  There's lots of useful information throughout the forum.  I'm in a tropical climate, so my overwintering is quite different from yours.  There are many beekeepers in cold climates that can give you feedback, however this posting area is primarily for introductions, so you would be best to browse around a little for information, then perhaps start a new thread/post with your questions or request for help/information.  To get you started off, here's a few older threads to peruse:

If you're unable to find what you're looking for don't bee afraid to start a post in the appropriate area on the forum.

Welcome to Beemaster!  Feel free to ask or answer any questions.  We love talking bees!   :happy:
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

Welcome, Indiana. We have everything from brand new beeks to older wise sages. I've learned that this forum is the very best info spot on the web. I imagine you will too.

Welcome
