Just started my first hive 2 weeks ago. I bought a package of Italians. I can't seem to tear myself away from the hive. I could sit there all day and watch them do what they do. And actually, I have sat there all day for a few of the last 14 days! My partner thinks I'm a bit obsessed, but I am hooked. Really, really hooked. I have so much to learn and really appreciate that this forum exists. Cheers!
