(This is great news to me, because if that does happen, I won't have to deal with the issues of finding a farm to let me keep them there, and then also having to worry about pesticides.) I'm keeping my fingers crossed, because so far, my mom thinks it will "look so cute next to the butterfly bush, Jeffery!" , but my dad doesn't quite have the vision... XD
    This is indeed great news. Keep working on your Mother. She will be a powerful ally when it comes to convincing your father.

    Hi Araceli I started beekeeping when I was in highschool in 1964. I quit and got back into it last year because my grandaughter wanted to have a hive. She is an awesome beekeeper and handles the bees like a pro. She has no fear but does respect her bees. You will be very happy you decided to get into beekeeping. I do have one suggestion however. Try to find an experienced beekeeper to help you get started. They will help you choose the right equipment and gear you need. I suggest getting kits that you can assemble yourself. You will enjoy beekeeping more when you dive in with both feet! Good luck and let us know of your progress.

    Never be afraid to follow your dreams

    The thing that determines the size of a hive is not just what you want, but what the flow does. If you crowd them they will swarm.

    Welcome Araceli! I doubt that's the case but if it were then you are surrounded by a few thousand folks that are even bigger freaks. I actually had my first beekeeping experience when I was just 3....well sort of. I slipped away from my dad and opened a hive and got stung about 5 times in the head, I can still remember how bad that hurt. Maybe that's my problem hmmmmm.
