Hello, I am new to this site, and new to beekeeping. I have been wanting to keep bees for years, but never wanted to make the investment. A friend of mine gave me a suit, and I got hooked. I have been working with wild hives so far. My first cutout was unsuccessful. They just left, but I learned a lot. This site appears to be a real jewel. I have found so much information about bees on the net. Beekeepers like to share their knowledge it seems. I like that.
