My husband and I have been considering getting bees for several years due to the fact we love local honey, we garden, and wish to help the environment!

We just obtained two very established colonies from a 30+ year beekeeper, working on downsizing into retirement. ( oh if we only knew half of his knowledge!:rolleyes:) he and his lovely wife at Honey Glow Farms got us all set up and recommended this site for us.

I look forward to learning all about our wonderful family additions and we look forward to chatting with all of you!

hi there fellow newbies from central Pa. there is a lot to learn I have been studying for a yr now, with webinars and internet, Ohio state has good webinars and they tape them so you can still listen to them, I have three hives and know a lot to look for, but today I sat there and just watched bees flying, and I could swear I saw bees coming out of one hive and go into the other, so I just got done installing a robbing screen and sure enough there's at least 50 bees trying to get in thru the screen, so good luck with he bees.

Hi Jenwen, welcome to the forums. I'm new here myself, so don't look to me for any answers. :)

I think you have a great source of info from the guy who set you up with the bees. If he's close to you, he'd be the guy who'd I would rely on. I've been reading these forums for sevreal weeks now, and I still find myself not knowing what some of these folks are talking about....but I'm learning...I think. Good luck with your girls.

Welcome Jen,
You purchased your bees from fine beekeepers. A friend bought over 150 hives from them and is very pleased.
