    Default Newbies in Missouri

    Hello to all,
    I am homeschooling mom to five kids, graduating my second from homeschool this year. I try to find some special thing that I can do/learn with each child, and with my third (son) we are trying to learn to be beekeepers. I saved my pennies for a couple of years and as my son was thirteen we were able to get a hive, basic equipment, and a nuc of Russian bees. We thought things were going well, though weather here in Missouri last summer was drought-like and hard on hives everywhere. Thru lack of experience and lack of expert help, our little hive didn't make it thru the winter. So we've just installed a package of hygenic Italians and we are hoping for the best. We've also hooked up with the local beekeepers group to utilize some of that local knowledge. Regardless, it has been fascinating for my son and I and the whole family. We're eager to get on our feet and get another hive!

    Looking forward to learning from the knowledgeable folks here too!
    Thanks for reading.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of beekeeping. It will be both rewarding and frustrating at times. But always fascinating.
    It sounds like you are on the right track by hooking up with your local club. This group will also be a great resource for you.
    And if you ever need any help I live next door in Crawford County, MO.
