Hey all. Took a local course 2 years ago and finally got off my but and jumped into bee keeping. Have a great mentor nearby that I picked up 2 Nucs from. Picked up 2 packages from Orr Bee in Western NC. Captured my 1st swarm with the help of my mentor. I have a total of 5 hives and have learned a lot. Enjoying the time with my girls every afternoon. I should have done this sooner.
