    New-bee here in NY! Just installed my first nuc Sunday in our backyard. I'm deathly afraid of bees, but for some reason I have wanted to raise bees for a while now. I guess run towards your fears, right? I've done pretty well the two times I went into the hive (first time installing it, second time to give more food because I didn't realize my bag of sugar was empty!) but I haven't yet gotten to investigate my hive closely. Hopefully in the next weekend or two I can have a good chunk of time on a nice sunny day to look at all the marvels going on inside of this painted little box in my backyard. I have a million questions, and I'm very afraid of swarming, or that I squished the queen, or that they are all going to die under my watch.

    I look forward to the life long journey of learning about bees in my future!
