I am a newbie, just started 2 hives back at the end of March. I am happy to see this resource for questions and sharing experiences with folks who are new like me and those who've been caring for bees for years. I always wanted to keep bees and now that I am almost retired, I decided it was now or never. I am not as afraid of the bees as I thought I would be and actually find it very relaxing watching them buzz around.

I look forward to reading all the posts and am sure I will come away with some great information to help me keep my bees healthy and maybe even happy!
