Re: Howdy from South Texas
Welcome aboard Sid from South Texas. You have come to the right place. Tons of info and help here. Use the search feature on tis site to find a wealth of info on just about any topic you can think of.
My advice....don't try to conquer everything at once. Read...read...read...then read some more. Start with one or two hives...observe....learn the beeeeeezzz. Get used to handling them, get used to looking through a hive. Learn your local forage and when it's available for the bees. Make your mistakes. Then when you feel comfortable.....take on all the problems associated with keeping bees. Have fun.
"you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink"...well that horse ain't got nothing on a bee.
