beepro: I have 2 Bee hives but no bees. I came late to the party this year. My expected delivery date is Mid May for 2 packages. I could have purchased local bees but I went the Hygiene route so I'll see how that goes. Trust me, waiting has not been easy lol.
I'm sure it would be great to have someone come by and give me a hand/pointers from time to time (A mentor) or help them but I don't really know anyone that well yet plus I'm the type (like my grandma) who doesn't want to put someone out of their way. For now it's reading the forums, watching youtube and going to meetings/classes. There is a class my son and I are signed up for this Saturday so it will give me a chance to ask questions and interact.
