    Welcome, certainly is western Virginia, not West Virginia. You spelled everything correct! I lived in Norfolk over ten years. My kids are still there.

    Welcome! This is a great place with a lot of knowledge and friendly folks willing to help. If you want to get a head start and do some reading before you get your bees: Some of the best reading material I have come across and read since getting started is "Beekeeping for Dummies", "The Backyard Beekeeper", "Natural Beekeeping", "Langstroth's Hive and the Honey-Bee", and Fifty Years among the Bees". Tip: read the first 3 first, you'll have a better understanding of what the next two are talking about. Also, there is a lot of information in any edition of ABC-XYZ of Beekeeping. I've read two editions cover to cover, the latest and one from the 70s. Also, join a local beekeepers assn, and find a mentor, they are invaluable to you as a beginner.

    Good Luck when you do get started and many happy years of beekeeping!

    Welcome!

    Yes, this is a great forum for learning more about bees & beekeeping. Be sure to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum: lots of good info covering the basics.

    Also, I recommend getting involved with a local club. Clubs often offer beginning beekeeping classes and are good places to find mentors and get connected with local beekeepers:
