    Default New beek in west Georgia

    Hello. I'm completely new to beekeeping. My interest is in honey, of course, but also the bees themselves. I just like to see creatures thrive under my care. I'm most interested in minimal chemical treatments, but have an open mind.

    Welcome to the forum, FF. Hmm, having a rabbitry I see that you *do* like to see critters thrive and multiply! Wiith honey bees you look at the colony as a single living "creature" and increase is made by the creation of new colonies. Honey bee colonies are eusocial superorganisms. Each colony is a living creature of and in itself with different "body parts"...drones, workers, brood, queens...any of these get sick or weak or are of bad genetics then the entire colony can possibly suffer and die. It takes them all to thrive.
