I am a new bee-keeper in Blanco County, TX, pretty much muddling along--ineptly for the most part--by myself.

I'm hoping this online community can keep me straight in beekeeping ways.

Just read everything that you can get your hands on, and get into as many hives as you can.

I'm in my 3rd winter now. Went from 2 hives in year 1, to 7 hives in year 2, to 18 hives in year 3. I've read everything I can get my hands on, and have reached out to every beekeeper who will give me a moment of their time or more. Get a MENTOR who will go through your hives with you. That's the absolute best way to learn. See if there is a local bee club you can join, and attend the meetings.

Good luck!

Hello Brendan,

Have you seen "Night at the Museum II"? There's a funny scene with a security guard named Brendan... nevermind....

Glad to have you here. I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a great source of information about bees & beekeeping.

See if there is a local bee club you can join, and attend the meetings.
Definitely.
