Hello all, I'm a new beekeeper in Bay City, MI. I'm 31 years old, and my 7 year old daughter is to blame for the family's new obsession. I also have a friend, Brad, that started a year ago.

Funny, when I told my wife what I was planning to do, she said "this may be the dumbest thing you've done.... There's no way I'm having anything to do with this stupid hobby." Now, less than a month later, she's so enamored with the little ladies, that she's already made plans to try a topbar hive and fill it with Russians for next spring.

Hopefully, I can keep my girls going thru the winter, and maybe get a little honey from them....

Oh, I also forgot to mention, I plan on not using any chemicals with my bees. I'd like to keep them as untainted as possible...

Oh no, no "soon to be obsession" about it... it's already full blown... I'm jumping in with both feet. In fact, I'm in the process of getting a feral Colony (capitalized because it's freakin' huge) out of a tree up the road from my house.... who does that a month after they start?!?! I think I have a fever of some sort....:shhhh:
