I am fresh from Cornell's Apprentice Beekeeping Seminar (last Sat.) and decided that I could not wait until next year to get bees. I found Italian bees at Drapers (in Millerton, Pa.), drove there after work, put the hives together that night and into the next day and put the bees in yesterday. All seems well. I keep looking out my kitchen window at the hive.
I need to join my local Bee Club. The people I work with, I suspect, think I am slightly nuts as I try to tell them about my bees.
So I am here for freindship and support.
