    Default Hello from Northwestern WI

    Just wanted to say Hi, I have been lurking here for quite a while, and finally joining up. I am hoping to get my first hive going this spring, so I am a newbie who is totally overwelmed! I have been doing lots of reading, trying to get an idea how to go about the great art of bee keeping! I look forward to all the great information you folks offer!
    Thanks
    Michele

    Hi Michelle
    And welcome to the best internet beekeeping site there is. Lots of friendly beeks with good info here to help you over the overwhelmed feelings.
    Nothing like thinking of spring bees to help get you through the temps Wisconsin is seeing now!

    Hello and Welcome!

    I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a great place to learn more about beekeeping. Be sure to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum - lots of good info covering the basics.

    Also, check into joining a local bee club. Clubs are good places to find mentors and get connected with other local beekeepers. Hopefully, one of these is near you:

    Welcome Michele,

    No doubt it'll be much easier once you get the colony(ies) settled in. Just make sure your veil is on when you release them into the brood box. After that, it's a waiting game....
