Hello and Welcome!

I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a useful resource for learning more about bees and beekeeping. Be sure to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum - it has a lot of good info covering the basics.

I also recommend getting involved with a local bee club. Clubs are great places to find mentors and get connected with local beeks, plus they often offer beginning beekeeping classes other assistance for new beekeepers. Here's the link for Alabama clubs:

You might want to get with BeeDude. He has a post in the welcome forum 'Moving to Lone Star State" where he mentions having a couple of hives he can't take with him. He is not to far from you.

War Eagle!!
