I ordered a couple packages to start this spring. Looked like something I should get into after tearing through a couple local library's selections of bee related books.
Looking to go natural if I can.
Here's hoping I don't kill 'em.
Go back to that library and get some beginning wood working books :applause:, unless you already know how, Ive discovered woodworking goes hand in hand with bee keeping. Im like you, just starting, picking up my pkgs in mid April, have my hives all set up. Lots of good info and good people here, welcome!
You are in great territory, with several very reputable beekeeping supply houses nearby, and lots of experienced beekeepers nearby as well.
Be certain to attend the Conference in Wooster the first Saturday in March. The largest seminar for beekeepers in the US, and it is in your backyard. Lots of great lectures and 40-50 beekeeper suppliers. www.tricountybeekeepers.org/
