    Smile Hello from Laurel, Maryland

    Hi, my name is Olga and I just ordered my first package of italian bees. So I can't even call mysef a beek yet, but I am exited about getting started. I built my TBH and read a few books on how to take cere of the wonderful creatures. I must say, I am scared, but I am ready to give it all I got. This forum is great, I already found bunch of good info here. Thanks!

    Welcome! Have you found a local bee club, yet? It's a great way to learn, either through workshops, or just asking your neighbors lots of questions. I think one of the best things I did when I was starting out was watch other beekeepers work their hives. When I did it myself, I knew what to expect, and how not to be a total klutz.

    I'll bet Laurel is great for bees! I grew up in Bethesda, and lived in Baltimore for years. Remember that bees need good air flow in the summertime.

    I'll also encourage you to get involved with a club - they're great places to find mentors and get connected to the local beekeeping community:
