    Epi-Pen but not for each family member, especially if you don't know whether or not you're allergic. If you're going to go to that extreme you may as well have an allergy test done on each family member to see whether or not they're allergic. Using an Epi-pen simply because you got stung and it burns will cause more harm then good, the only time you should use an Epi-pen is if you're going to anaphylactic shock.

    When I told my doctor we were getting into beekeeping she gladly wrote scripts for Epi's for each family member.

    I was not allergic for 48-1/2 years and then at 48-1/2 years and 1 day all of a sudden I was.

    An Epi-Pen will only work if you have it. It's for emergency use only, not for every sting.

    When using smaller hives, a round top feeder is my suggestion.

    When starting out I always tell my students to start out small so can see if you will get the hang of it. Then after your first harvest you can add more if you enjoy the hobby.

    The most important thing you will need to begin is "knowledge" and lots of it The beekeeping world is always changing and it has proven to have one of the largest learning curves of any one subject I've ever studied.
