Good morning, my wife and I installed our very first packet of bees in late April and recently added a second colony to our apiary over the weekend. While we are completely new to beekeepring we look forward to learning the technically correct methods of handling and promoting the health of the bees, as well as sharing the experience with friends in the hopes they too will take up the hobby.

Thanks in advance to all those who are willing to share their knowledge of beekeeping in order to lessen the learning curve for people like me. In time I hope do the same for other new beekeepers!

Hello and Welcome!

I'm sure you'll find this forum to be very useful for learning more about bees and beekeeping. You might want to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum - there are a lot of good tips there covering the basics.

Besides checking your local library for books & videos on beekeeping, head over to Michael Bush's beekeeping site:
http://www.bushfarms.com/bees.htm

Lastly, I recommend getting involved with a local bee club. Clubs often offer beekeeping classes and are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers:

Welcome, from another OHIO beekeeper. Geauga County should be a very good place to keep bees. I have family roots in Concord and Hambden back to about 1810, it's a beautiful area. Sounds like you're off to a good start. Enjoy!
