    Default Hi From Utah!

    Hello! My name is Teal and I am brand spanking new to beekeeping! I am still in research mode. Although I am confident that beekeeping is a hobby that is definitely for me, I am still trying to figure out the best way to approach it. In all my readings, I surely want to try the more organic and natural methods, but I'm having quite a hard time finding good resources on the subject!

    Any pointers would be great! I'm so happy to BEE here! Haha!

    HoneyTeal,

    Welcome!!! You will find a great deal of information right here on Bee Source but there are many who are willing to provide other information. fat/beeman has some fantastic videos and other information on beekeeping on youtube and on his website (search and you'll find the address on youtube). Feel free to IM me and I would be happy to share more info with you. My wife and I are on our second year of keeping bees but I have read about it for years. There is so much info out there and it is easy to get overwhelmed. It is a fascinating hobby/science/art!
    We are in Orem and if you are ever down this way, stop by and we can chat and show you around our yard.

    Oh, that would be so awesome! I am in Orem pretty frequently, and I am going to do my best this year to observe as many beekeepers as I possibly can. Thank you so much!

    Welcome from Clinton, Utah... As you've learned there is a fairly large active group down there in Utah County with many members. You already know how they feel about sharing and helping others. You should be in great hands down there. I wish we had a similar group up North hear. I think I remember learning that we don't even have a current inspector up here in Davis County. Don't quote me on that, but it would be nice to have a go-to person near by. Hang on for the ride and don't let em sting ya in the same place twice!
