Hello from Omaha
I go by Big Bear or bigbearomaha online. I am starting an apiary in Omaha to focus on building healthy and plentiful bee populations in and around Nebraska and the Omaha/metro area.
Our apiary will work with all levels of beekeepers and try to help new and interested people to get involved at their own pace without a large buy in to get started.
I will be browsing the forums trying to glean as much information as possible to get your ideas on the best methods of managing bees.
