    Default New hopeful from Arkansas

    Howdy everyone...Eric from central Arkansas here. I first thought about beekeeping 2 years back as my carpentry instructor brought up the topic one day in class. My wife and I are hoping to add several thousand tiny friends to our 10 acre home this spring.

    Welcome to Beesource!

    Hopefully you will have many more than "several thousand" bees added to your property this spring. A 3 lb package is around 10,000-12,000 bees.

    Hello Eric
    I am also in central Arkansas and on my second year of beekeeping. You wont regret it. Have you join a bee club they are great to learn and most have a beginners class every spring.

    Thank you, the ABA site has a ton of information on it. I'm roughly the same driving distance between two clubs, North LR and greater Hot Springs.
